Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~ Elizabeth Stone
It’s 6: 01 PM on day 98 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, sleep until 12 PM – I didn’t get much sleep yesterday due to the fact that I spent most of the night with my head over a bucket puking my guts out – suspected food poisoning – don’t worry I feel a 100% better now it takes more than a little food poisoning to keep me down LOL 🙂 – finish writing and publishing yesterday’s blog post – I fully intended to publish it yesterday but I thought I would sleep for an hour, wake up, finish write it and publish it but the next time I woke up was at 4 AM this morning with my head over a bucket – suffice to say things didn’t work out exactly according to plan LOL 🙂 – and drink to glasses of tea all by myself – the next time you feel like vomiting drink black tea without milk and LOTS of sugar – it works 🙂
I had always thought that wherever happened to me affected no one else but me but yesterday as I was watching my mother hovering over my bed checking to see if I was okay I realized something that I will carry with me for all the days of my life – we are an extension of our parents and they hurt when we hurt – so to all the kids out there please know that whatever your parents do that is offensive to your sensibilities is done out of the best of intentions.
