I'm searching, very hard I might add, to find words that seem eloquent, seem sufficient to really convey what I'm trying to say without sounding whiny and pathetic. But really... I just don't know what else to do.What started out as a pretty damn good … Continue reading A Life Worth Living?
My mother is coming to DC next week to visit me. For four days.FOUR WHOLE, COMPLETE AND TOTAL DAYS.As if life wasn't painful enough.Yuck.I really don't know what to do with that.
