Day 4 of 21

I ate a banana today.  I stood at the market and looked at fruit and decided it was a texture issue with me.  Blech.  Don't like it.

Tonight I heard from my daughter on Facebook-I haven't seen her in over 5 years-since before HER daughter was born.  Estranged family is odd.  I AM glad to hear from her and trying just to take it one step at a time and see what we have in common.  I don't do the movie reunion crap well-neither dramatic or falsely coy.  There is no time for coyness, and I don't need the drama and neither does she.  We'll just see.

Oddly enough, I'm planning on being in her town (she's in Texas) in a couple of weeks-and I hope she wants to meet.  I mean, I really do.  I'd like to see her, especially if she's doing ok.

I will be sad if she's NOT doing ok-because I do care about her, but I'm not going to let potential sadness get in the way of maybe potential happiness.  I'm so damn pragmatic I annoy even myself.

it seems to me last year you heard from her or she popped up somehow. I was hoping you'd see her back then.

I'm hoping for a smooth, much-needed reunion for you both ;)
