At the beginning of June, mom traveled to San Francisco for a work conference. Even though she FaceTimed me every day, I still missed her an awful lot. In fact, during her first night away, I decided to wake up in the middle of the night and cry for her.
While she was gone, I also decided to drop a big, heavy can of pineapples on my toe. Ouch! I don’t think we’ll have to amputate it, but I may lose my nail. It’s a good thing I’m tough!
My mom did eventually return from California, however, I haven’t quite returned back to normal. I still wake up most nights and cry for her. Mom says it’s nice to be loved and missed, but she’d prefer that I love and miss her outside the hours of 12:00 a.m. through 6:00 a.m.
