With You Everyday, Beth Hart
My dad and I were strolling through Central Market today while talking about Christmas. When I told him I knew exactly what I was going to get him he responded, “There is only one Christmas present I want this year. So, if it isn’t a grandchild.. don’t bother getting me anything at all.” He then proceeded to do the robot through produce section.
…..That’s my dad for ya’.
—————-continuation brought on by a restless mind——————
I see my parents A LOT, probably more than the average person my age sees his or her parents. But even then the quality time I spend with them is minimal so today I decided to spend my entire day with them. I could not have asked for a better way to end my Thanksgiving break.
I feel refreshed. renewed. revitalized. comforted.
I guess this would be a good time for a little RBD, so here goes nothin’…
R- The highlight of my day was during Sunday night football. We were just lounging watching the game and per usual we put the TV on mute to talk about the last play while the commercials were playing and per usual we got off on a tangent and somehow started talking about Bert Vaux’s dialect survey. Five minutes into the conversation, I chose to remain silent and listened. I listened to just..well .just to listen to my parents talk. just to listen to them be each other’s friend. just to listen to them listen to one another. just to listen to them..be.
I love that my parents can talk about everything and then nothing at all and IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII want that….with the right person (when the time comes)….for “forever”. I know that sounds all cheesy and what not, but really, I do. To share my life, in its entirety, with another being must be one of the most special things that I can really think of. And the more I experience different relationships, the easier it becomes for me to identify what I want in a relationship. I know, that this may sound selfish, but it’s not. Trust me. Ready? Here is the one thing it all dwindles down to…in a relationship all I want is to love someone. Simple enough, right?! Basically yes, but no; it is a means to an end, but not an end in itself. More to come later
B- Wellll I registered for my second quarter of grad school today and I’m really excited! I love school. It’s challenging, interesting, fun, and eye-opening. I can’t wait to see what this new course will bring. I’m also supahhh pumped to see my little babies. I haven’t seen them since Wednesday and given that, I’m sure tomorrow will be quite the interesting Monday. Regardless, they’ll be getting huge hugs from me the second I see their bright little face. Last but not least, I’m excited about life. YESSS, I know i’m on a cheesy roll, but seriously, I am! It’s December and there’s tons of fun stuff coming up. I’m just livin’ my life, man.
T- This week I found out I “need” surgery on my wrist. I’m not buying it sooooo for the time being i’m just gonna say, “c’est la vie”. I’m fine. I’ll be fine. That’s really the only thorn I can think of that’s worth writing about, the rest is insignificant and doesn’t deserve my time.
all for now. xo.
