It’s been an adventure getting to this small town close to family and most of all my Mom.. I had to put distance between my sister and I days ago.. she took that old bone out she likes to chew, regurgitate and start chewing all over again. She refuses to let the past stay where it is and old issues seem to haunt her. I’ve sadly realized that I can love her but I don’t like her all that much. It’s a relief to acknowledge it to myself and to my Mom.
On a funnier note while taking my Mom out to breakfast today she told me about an argument she had with my step dad last night. He mentioned he always hated the town they were living in and if he won the lottery he sure as hell would be moving on. Mom asked him where he would like to live then and he responded .. a town with a Legion and a pool hall in it.. I broke out laughing..it seems no matter what, we always want what we can’t have. Mom blew up and told him he was living in the past.. all the Legion members their age were dead and pool halls no longer existed AND you can’t even dance. By this time I’m almost rolling on the floor, I just can’t help myself.
I’m determined to get all the dancing in now while I can, share my love with people who appreciate it and reciprocate….and maybe .. just maybe I’ll save the last dance for you.
