My mom says: “I wonder if I should give this whole blog thing up. I mean, I’m not very consistent in my writing. People get tired of that.”
I think she should keep plugging away because someday she’ll get to a point where she will be able to write more often. This IS supposed to be her journal. And mine. She should keep a journal. That’s what I t hink.
So, please don’t abandon her. She’ll come around. I think she’ll need an outlet because it seems that she’s going to be an empty-nester very soon. And I’ll go back to being an only dog (depending on how well Sosha adjusts to condo life).
My mom has been real excited about this for months. She’s so happy that my sister, Jamie, bought a condo. Jamie has been wanting her own place since about a week after she moved back in three years ago. It is a good thing. It is time.
But my mom realized something last night.
This is permanent. My brother owns his own house and my sister owns her own house. This means (God forbid that anything happens) that they’re not coming back. And my Mom (even though she’s happy and excited) is a little sad.
