Home sick

Today I was home sick and homesick. I woke up with swollen glands and a sore throat so I stayed home from work. I miss my parents and keep asking when they plan to visit. They usually come down for grandkid activities - birthdays, school plays, awards etc. As their kidless daughter, I lack the same draw. Rudy and Bridget aren't in school plays. It makes me sad but such is life. "Tamara, Tamara, don't be blue. One day they will visit YOU". Some say I'm lucky to have a carefree life without kids. But what is the measure of ones life when you are single? I have a job, a car, an apartment and two dogs. That's boring. At the end of the day, I want to feel my life mattered and I made a difference. I try to be a great friend, a great daughter, a great sister and a great Aunt. Hopefully that is enough.

You ARE a great friend! And watching you with Claudia, it is clear that you are a great auntie too!

Don't kid parents come to our house and we are completely aware that they are coming for the kids!

You are a great friend, you are clearly a great sister and great aunt and you will be a great mom one day. You should tell your parents that you miss them and would love for them to visit and spend a fun weekend in Chicago...I am sure they would love to hear that from you.
