2 days

There are now only 2 days before her birthday.

I sent her presents on Friday and I am sure as anything that they received the box on Saturday since I sent it Priority mail.  So I was just alittle shocked to get a call from L on Saturday.  She said “Haven’t forgotten you.”  Really, you want to try that one again. I think that the only reason why she called is because they received the box.

I wasn’t home.  Which in and of itself is a good thing.  Because then I would have just stared at the phone while it was ringing looking at their name in the caller id and wonder what this call is going to hold for me.


I called back yesterday.

I left a message.

She called back 🙂

I heard Supergirl in the background 🙂

 I heard her laughter 🙂

 I heard her talking 🙂

I was filled in on the world of Supergirl.

I know that they got her a swingset for her birthday this year.

I know that she is a picky eater, eating only much of what I eat (tell that there is nothing to nature in this).

She doesn’t eat the same foods I don’t eat.  I am a picky eater.  B is a picky eater.  Even my cousin is a well known picky eater in the family.

Don’t tell me that there is nothing to Nature and it is all Nuture becasuse I will tell you that you are full of it!!!



We talked about getting together.

There are 13 days until I hope (hope against anything) that I will see her again.  For my eyes to look into hers and for her to see a connection between us.  For me take my own pictures and not rely on the ones that she sends.



I am still getting away.  I will be going to Rockland, Maine.  Why?  It just sounds nice and peaceful and quiet and of course there are lighthouses near by 😉


Oh and to a beautiful friend who answered her phone.  Thank you Thank you and Thank you.  It helped to center and balance me for the night at work.

    Glad to hear you made it through your night at work Leigh. I’m sure hearing your happiness made that, as you said “beautiful friend”s day at work a little less painful too 😉

    Have I mentioned lately how excited I am for you??

    I thought of you (this post) this weekend when my little one popped one black olive after another into his little mouth at a party we were at. BLack olives?? Who knew? I made a mental note to ask N. if she liked black olives, becasue he sure doesn’t get that via “nurture!” 🙂
