far from home...confessions of a bad conversation
today has been, well..a day. yup that kind of day. the kind where things go a little sideways and then you end up yelling at your mama. my mama lives far away in a land called oklahoma, and here i am in cali-forn-ia. the last time she saw my wee turtles they were 5 and 7. it was a short visit, we were there for a funeral. they are 7 and 10 now. that's NOT how i want them to remember her. i don't have a lot of extra cash but i can scrape up a plane ticket. i just want her here, for my kiddos. oh i miss her too, but that ship sailed awhile ago. my turtles however deserve grand-parental love! feeling a little selfish on behalf of family, feeling a little guilty for working too much and just plain missing my mama. too bad i came off like a bitch during that conversation.
