I was actually having a similar conversation with Lori on the way home. We ARE a family. We look out for one another, we take care of one another. I don't know how I, we, all of us got so damn lucky, but I would not change a thing.
So great to see everybody again, such a shame I couldn't stay later at the actual WinTO dinner, would have loved to get to know my future adoptive family a bit more. It was a great day, though, and now my appetite for RvBTO 2012 has increased even more!
The more I organize these mini events and see your lovely faces the more I feel like the mother-hen of the group.(Especially the part where I have to control John dumb antics... Can't take that boy anywhere... ) I now realize its not because I have to... It's because I WANT to. No matter how much I stay away from it. (like having a break this year from organizing)
It means a lot to me that you guys come and hang out. It's a pain but honestly its worth herding everyone. Especially the ones that show up by surprise
Yeah, I was thinking about this today as well, after I woke up for my 4 hour long nap.
You guys are family. no other word about it. When I woke up this morning, tired, and slightly hung over I still got up to go see everyone for lunch. I never get up then, unless I absolutely have to. my room mate asked me if I was ok, because it was the most cheerful he had ever seen me in the morning.
seeing you all re energized me. I see the majority of you once, maybe twice a year, and I still count you all as close friends. I don't fully understand it, but you all mean so much to me.
hmmm if we are a family then who am i married to? i don't think i can be adopted being the only black person in Canada i have a lot of places to be at once. OH DAMN! sry brb got a surgery to preform but don't think this makes anything I've said is any less valid!
No one. The e-mail I got today asking when I could interview was extremely positive. Helps that it's an internal position and all my references are fellow employees/supervisors. I could be wrong, but it seems like the job is mine to lose.
