Along for the ride

Wow, this is nice, really nice. My Mother and Grandmother fuss over me, I don't have to worry about a thing. Not laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning, cooking, running errands, paying bills, you know the real world.

I miss Shawn and Sara Lou but this is really nice.

It's funny I hadn't realized how much these last few years have sort of beaten me up or down I should say, but now in retrospect, I really see it. I just feel lighter, I'm not anxious, I don't have to have control over everything anymore. When I first got down here we were going out for dinner and my Mother held out the keys to me, I looked at them and said, "What?" and she looked at me like I was nuts and says "Don't you want to drive?" I said no, you can drive and she literally stood there confused.

I don't want to drive, I don't have to be in control, I'm content to just sit back and go for the ride.

It's wonderful to just enjoy the ride.

Good for you! It's nice to be taken care of once in a while, isn't it? Takes a bit of getting used to though. Enjoy and relax and I'm looking forward to seeing you when you get home! xo, kim
