Mom left Monday at the crack of dawn for the states. She will be gone 10 days. It is a recharge trip to get new clothes and more supplies. But it is also an opportunity for her to see my dad and the dog. I know this has been hard on her. She has probably been bored out of her mind in my little apartment. And taking care of me is no picnic. I am one of those patients who doesn’t like to be cared for.
And while I am super excited to be alone in my apartment for the first time in a long time, (I may have to dance naked in the living room to symbolize my independence) I also know that the house is going to be empty without her. As my friend told me, it is the perfect time for us to miss each other.
