On the home front things are moving forward slowly and sometimes it feels like we’re getting nowhere in this house despite our continuous efforts. But I remind myself that we arrived at this house beaten down from the stressful sale of our previous place and from the exhausting move. We’re also doing everything ourselves. Everything. We’ve become masters at cleaning and painting and organizing. Do you need any of these done at your place? You do? Well, don’t bother us with it. Don’t we have enough to deal with here? Sheesh.
Speaking of old friends, encounters such as this spark memories of my high school days. And intense emotions of nostalgia. I’ve got so many memories, most of them good, of those teen angst years when we were full of piss and vinegar, as the expression goes, and big plans. We thought we were immortal and that we knew everything. Our parents were clueless and out of touch and anyone over 35 was old. We were headstrong and idealistic and adventurous. As well as impatient and confused and defiant. It was quite a ride.
And with that, I will end the week with the song “Graduation (Friends Forever)” by American pop singer Vitamin C. It triggers memories of that period of my life. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend.
