My life seems all about waiting this week: waiting for my period to end, waiting for the lovely EWCM, waiting for our fabulous upcoming trip, waiting, waiting, waiting. I’m a pretty patient person, but I have moments when I feel like I’m positively going to burst from anticipation. I don’t know if there are any such cases on record, but I’m certain I will be the first if there aren’t.
We had the glorious opportunity to see my brother graduate from his firefighter officer’s academy today. It was an event complete with bagpipes, a color guard, and many men (and a few women) in their best uniforms. Today was a nice day to take the focus off of my life and to see what he’s accomplished. He’s one of my favorite people in the whole world.
I also saw my dad today. I haven’t seen my dad in about two years. We haven’t spoken in that same amount of time. I love my dad, but we have a hard time finding a common ground, and I have an especially hard time with his tendency to be very miopic and self-centered. It was good to see him, though, good to give him a hug and to hear him call me sweetheart. More about father-daughter relationships another day, though.
Another highlight was seeing my sister with her big belly. We are getting more used to the fact that we will soon be aunts. Sometimes this stings, while other times it’s exciting. All that aside, my sister looks beautiful, and her belly is lovely, and I’m looking forward to meeting my neice in just a couple of months. Wow. It really will be that soon.
