Yes I'm sure you didn't need to know that but ehh it was in my brain. Today is officially my youngest niece's third birthday. I miss her terribly which is why I've been applying for nearly anything moving down near them. I tried again in vain to get my mother on a plane to visit and I got the same diatribe about my sister in law which I just can't work around anymore. It made me start crying because my father won't ever meet the girls, even if I was there I'd be busy working so they won't see me as much, and my mother is being a brat about seeing our only other immediate family. It could also be because I don't have kids of my own the special days with them seem much more salient. I was literally overjoyed when I got to talk to them a bit on Christmas via skype. They were cute and happy and talk too much and then stop talking all at once. I always stress balance to my clients and I swear I never have it in my own life.
At least mom's doctor visit went well so thank heavens for small graces. Still not falling asleep but I'm making myself even more irritated so I'm going to sign off now. Happy Birthday pretty girl.
