End of the year....
Hello everyone! As the GF is watching the historic game between the Patriots and the Giants, I am in my 2nd. hour of net surfing. We also recently flew back from her family in Dallas. It was really good to see the nephew... all six years old full of energy, stubbornness, and snuggles! We got the GF's parents a computer and we hope that as they enter the information age, they'll be able to communicate via e-mail, shop, and even surf some porn on their new computer! They (her folks) have worked hard all of their lives to raise their kids and now they're raising their grandson, and I just hope that one day, they'll finally be able to live a more comfortable and peaceful life.
I am going to fly back to my family for the new year and try to spend some quality time with my grandfather and my sister. I wish that we all lived closer, because the older I get, the less time I get to spend with them. Things don't feel the same since the passing of my grandmother, and I still miss her immensely. I still, however, have my grandfather and I am really appreciative of him! About my own mom and dad? I wish that things were different, and as much as we are civil with each other, I think they dropped the ball on my sister and I shortly after we were born... even though I don't really think that it was our fault, I think that sooner or later, the effects of their actions or inactions will come back to haunt all of us.
Nevertheless, 2008 is coming, and I am hopeful that it'll be a good year. I think I am going to try and make this military thing a part of my past, so wish me luck! I think the army has a lot of other young and motivated individuals that they can choose from instead of me, a semi-motivated, aging, and achy atypical Asian woman! I hope that I'll be able to understand my pets better, treat my GF better, maybe add an addition or two to our family, be more healthy, read more, and talk to God more.
I hope your new year will be a good one for you and yours too!
