Hey people. Fall, beautiful fall. I hope you've been enjoying it because it goes really fast. Metaphors about transformation abound...
She needed to come up here to bask in the love of her tribe for a couple days. My grandma was so excited to see her. At 96 she's been dealing with the realization that her days are numbered. her doctors have finally told her there isn't anything they can do for a 96 year old woman with heart failure, so she should just take her life day by day. She wanted very badly to see Katie, in case it was her last chance. She thinks Katie is very brave, and is proud of her.
This poor kid. Her divorce is sucking only slightly more than her 15 year crappy marriage to a narcissist who did nothing but ride her ass and criticize her. It's a door she has to walk through to get to her new life in an uncertain future, that will at least be all hers. She needed some family, and some fun. Check and check. We took her to Psycho Suzie's. If you live in the Twin Cities and have not gone here-- go here. As soon as possible.
As for her soon to be ex and his girlfriend; she's happy for them. She says she is kind of hurt, but really glad to see him so apparently happy. I don't know many women who could go there. Here's her and my dad. So much for the theory about girls picking a guy like their dad. Not even close. But it's not over for her yet! I still think the right one is out there somewhere.
People better just watch out though. I'm still the big sister and would totally *take care* of any bullies out there who mess with my little sis.
