E and Me

E has been a particular blessing lately. I don't get to spend as much time with him, which may have something to do with me finding humor and glee in everything he does. He has those big brown eyes, you know, the ones that are filled with curiousity and kindness. I'll be young forever, according to him.

One of these days I'm going to have to say goodbye to him; I've thought about it before but haven't had someone else drop the bomb on me. He's also the only one right now who seems completely peaceful and utterly stress-free. It's a complete turn-around from last year, and while everyone else is rocking my boat I'm just estatic about him.

Well, hello there. All kinds of happenings have been happening. And when a lot of things are happening I'm not so good at keeping track of it all, mostly due to my emotions leaking out and I'm trying to wipe them up.  I get frazzled trying to keep up with things because, well, I have to keep up and sort out.

This past weekend I went to one of my little spots of solice and dropped in on Steph and Michael.  Their lives are so much crazier than mine that its not even comparable. Yet we still manage to lay around and eat and walk and watch movies and talk about everything we've ever talked about.  Most of the time, even with her third bun in the oven, its no different than ever been. Except for the fact that she has those two kids and isn't in St. Louis anymore.  The latter is a bit of a bummer but I do have a nice excuse to get away for awhile.
Everyone is back home and its strange. Because we're all adults and adults are different now that they've been through things. So some discoveries are taking place. And more excuses to get away are warranted.
One of those getaways, and I'm sure more to come, are just Pop and I and a round or three of drinks. All kinds of things come out when that stuff goes in. Just as Wickersham said "In wine there is truth", well, there is in beer too. Mostly, we bring up the things we love, and that really is lovely.
