My mom came up to visit me this weekend (thanks to an amazingly-priced flight!) and let me just tell you: it was a great, great weekend. We ate, played games, ate, shopped, ate...oh man. Both my heart and my tummy are happy.
I do have an incredible immediate family. I'm so, so lucky. I love both my parents (and even *sigh* my little sister...) so, so much. I have the sweetest, most adorable puppy EVER and my bird is off-the-wall crazy insane (and wonderful!).
I was talking with my friend Kelly the other week. Her family is rich beyond measure and pretty miserable. My family isn't rich beyond measure (aaaack college tuition!), but we're happy. And we actually like each other. (I think. Right, family?)
Lucky. Lucky. Lucky.
I do miss them while I'm up here, and I know my mother misses me so much that she's built a shrine to me in my bedroom (I'm only half kidding). That's why weekends like I just had with my mumsie darling are the perfect way to spend my days.
Happy, lucky sigh :)
