The Last Day, and traveling home

Today wasn't the best day I ever spent in Georgia, at least not in the morning. I don't want to go into it, but it was kind of scary, and quite sad. The whole ordeal gave me the opportunity to look within myself, reason and forgive... it ended well. I know none of this makes sense, but.... I guess that sucks for you, cause this is my blog and I will write what I want! After a doctor's visit, Sheri and I went shopping and I ended up with a christmas present from my mom! We bought a Wii for me! We also ate lunch and shopped some more. I also lost my driver's license somewhere, so it was a TREAT getting through security with three non government issued, expired photo IDs.

I didn't get a 'formal offer' for a job from my sister, so I don't know if 1. I didn't do a very good job while I worked for her this week, 2. if she isn't hiring or doesn't need help or 3. If I am supposed to assume that I could have the job and etc w/o her explicitly telling me. I dunno. That's why the direct question would have helped. I question everything to death.

On the way home, I realized that when I am traveling alone, it's like a limbo. I am alone, with all of these strangers, each of us going different ways, many of us alone. Nobody is here or there, home or away. I am almost always sad when I am traveling alone, at least when I am traveling BACK, because of this feeling of... impermanence, I think. I also realize, the only time I EVER drink ginger ale is on air planes. But it is tasty.

I was pretty excited when I started my current job, and they reminded me of the free beverages. Like walking into a grocery store and being told you can grab a can of anything you want. I realized I hadn't had a ginger ale in pretty much forever, and I figured now would be a great time to have one.

Turns out I really don't like it like I remember... :P
