(from movie "The Princess and the Frog")
I didn't realize 'til now that I am flying to see family in a few days. Where did time go?
Summer flew by faster than I expected- as if someone pushed the "fast forward" on a channel remote and it is all a blur.
I couldn't figure if that was great or that it went fast by- don't get me wrong- there was some days that was totally awesome (hadn't yet shared my post on another blog- 506 reads in one day, and a lot of comments- WOW!- That's a record for me.) Other days, not so great, and the rest of days, you know how that was.
The trip to see the family is making me anxious. A part of me is excited; I hadn't seen some cousins in 20 years, and we'll be celebrating our grandmother's 95th birthday this coming weekend. A part of me is a bag of emotions- it'll be the first time I'll see my nephew in person- he just had become 1 year old. I hadn't yet put words on those emotions. Another part is sad- I'll be seeing my other grandmother, who is dealing with dementia, which I had written about: Remembrance. Her dementia is worsening to the point that she is not able to complete sentences anymore, or remember anyone but Grandpa (who died in my 20's).
So you have it....all juggling with emotions.
And they call it a vacation? My ass.
