Too tired to write anything of substance. Just in from dinner at E’s house. I think it’s hysterical how people think I’m going to waste away though all of this. I have
a little a lot of extra padding to work with here so people shouldn’t worry. I was so tired but in the spirit of being “ok” I went and I’m glad I did. I played with both of the girls and they both seemed rather more affectionate than usual. Stretch wanted to show me her juggling and guitar hero skills. Dollface wanted to play “makeover” and littlest pet shop. They hid my shoes when it was time for me to go home so I would stay longer. I only choked up once while I was there. Now I’m sitting here with the fingernails on one hand painted hot pink and the fingernails on the other one painted purple and wondering how I got so lucky to be the auntie to such a great family.
But… I wanted a great family too.
Guess my luck ran out.
Maybe I really will spontaneously combust tomorrow.
