Sometimes on my way drive to work I have random thoughts that really have no impact on my day. I should be thinking about what do I have on the agenda today… which team practice do my kids have today, what meetings do I have, did I forget to sign the papers my kids left out for me? Instead of those very important things, I asked myself this very non-important question: Does my mom say "I live with my daughter" or does she say "my daughter lives with me."
Despite it not really mattering which way she says it, we do in fact live together. But somehow in my head it makes a difference. Why does this seem so important to be a part of my stream of thoughts? I adore my mom and I wouldn't want her to live with either of my other two siblings. At the same time, I don’t want it to sound like I can’t live on my own. But again, who really cares, it is not like anyone ever has asked me. Still it sounds better that she lives with me... my random thoughts.
