Today is the Summer Solstice, the longest daylight and shortest night of the year. From this point forward, the days will grow shorter as we work our way to winter. Oh, it’ll get warmer for most of us here in the US, just as the last part of winter is usually the coldest. But we work towards that cooler weather. And, we wind closer to the day of our departure from these northern climes! I’m really looking forward to getting out of Chicago. I’m looking forward to being able to love Chicago again, but right now it’s like a prison, so I can’t love it. But I will again, I have faith in that.
I did talk to my parents yesterday, and my Momma told me that she’d call and check up on me in a week or two, but that if I had news I’d better call. As if I would find out I was pregnant and wouldn’t call her! She’s so silly. She’s another reason that I’m looking forward to moving. I’m looking forward to getting to see her again on a regular basis. I’ve always been close to my Momma, but I am more so now that I’m older and about to have children of my own. My Momma’s gonna be a wonderful Gammy – yeah, that’s what she wants to be called, isn’t she adorable?! I love her so much.
