claire can't see me.

a mom who is cooler in words than in life.

Now…where were we?

I suppose an update is in order. Since we last met my life has changed in 10 major ways. Instead of going with me usual long-winded soliloquies, I thought a list would be more efficient.

1. I buried my Mother 9 days after I graduated from college.

2. I graduated college cum laude.

3. I now work as a project manager disguised as a project assistant disguised as a receptionist. (only L.H will get that reference)

4. Since my biggest fan is gone failure/judgement doesn’t seems as devestating.

5. I’m starting a business.

6. I call my Dad on the regular now.

7. I’ve lost 12 lbs.

8. I have enough cojones to wear a wig. (Refer to #4)

9. I don’t worry about money. Ever.

10. I think my mom’s spirit has manifested into gnats/fruit flies that suddenly appear & nag me. & that cracks me up.

From all this, I have learned the follow:

1. Have more than 1 child.

2. Make sure your beneficiary papers are current.

3. Life is really not that serious in the long run.

4. Living life in the cubicle (especially one that’s fit for a dwarf) is for the birds.

5. Coping means slightly forgetting & letting go.

6. Storage costs are highly over priced.

7. Children are selfish little people who are helpful during crisis. Have some!

8. Fa’a Samoa is beautiful.

9. I am stronger than I ever gave myself credit for.

10. Sugar is overrated.

& that my dear beautiful strangers is life today for me. I can’t say that I’m okay, But, I am pretending to be everyday & once in a while I fool myself into believing just that.

I’ll see you in the next post.
