Waiting for the phone to ring

I was away in the mountains this weekend in British Columbia with Eric and some of our friends. We were so far away that cell phone service did not work. I am home now waiting for the phone to ring from my mother in New Brunswick. I don’t like this. I can’t seem to do anything else but wait for the ring. She left me three messages and also sent an email to me. The subject line of this email was I have something to tell you!!!. I do not like this. September is already a strange time of year for me. Either someone has died, someone is getting married or someone is sick in my family.

It’s hard sometimes living on the other side of the continent from where I was born. Especially during a I have something to tell you time. I physically cannot travel the 2000 miles to talk to my folks in person.

And today is September 11th. September 11th. This particular time of year is already soo full of personal memories both good and bad that adding another bad one may be all… ahhhhh. This is why my BF and I took off to the mountains away from it all. I am going to call my brother.

Update – no answer on my brothers phone.
Update – The phone rang. My doggy Moochie has died. May she rest in peace. I love you Moochie.

  1. Don’t you just dread those “I have something to tell you!!!” messages – sorry to hear. I know too well how pets can become so entwined in our lives – especially as a youngster they become a real part of the family.
