Phone calls

You know when you need to make a phone call to someone and you feel guilty that you haven't done it yet, because you know it will be a tough one? Well, by using second person I'm trying to wiggle my way out of this difficult phone call. Ah, family. What can you do? I won't go into too many details in this public forum, but when you have three people who are absolutely sure that three different versions of right thing to do should have been done a few months ago and now, not much can be, it's incredibly frustrating. But I am glad that I did call even though the first twenty minutes were of me biting my tongue unsuccessfully.

Still, as screwed up as everything is, at least we know we would pull each other out of a burning building. Although we may fight about why the fire started in the first place...

Ah, family...

I know how you feel.

Be glad there is distant between you and them.

Even with the best of intentions, there's always that baggage -- big ol' heavy baggage that sometimes comes back in style but mostly lies in the corner over there and reminds you of what's inside it. Of course when you open it up, sometimes there are surprises...

Thanks guys. I really appreciate your comments. I'll tell you more about it in person if you can stand it. Just ugly.
