My date

me
My date tonight went well, and no alcohol was consumed. Hurray for me! I just don't know how I feel about him right now, I mean the sex is ok, and he says he likes me, sez I'm sexy, but I have said that more times than I can count. I mean, he seems nice enough, but...as superficial as it makes me sound, I hate the way he talks. He speaks haltingly, deliberatly. I could care less that he's been on more test drives than I have. And I like that he only grunts when being intimate. I just wish he would talk in complete sentances.

Mom called me from The Garden State (aka New Jersey) this afternoon. Since I really haven't had much reason to tell anyone, my great-aunt (deceased) had a mentally retarded daughter named Anne. Anne has been in a special care facility for most of her life. Well, after Aunt Irene died, the guardianship of Anne fell on the family. Out of all of them, Mom's the one who goes out there for the hearings. These trips get paid for out of Anne's trust fund.
Well, when mom called this afternoon, she asked me if I would like to make the trip with her next spring. I guess the gentleman who is in charge of the trust fund at the bank suggested that mom make another visit then and bring someone with her. Since I'm the only one without prior commitments (the side effect of being gay), she asked me. Now I wouldn't mind, but I really have mixed emotions about taking over guardianship of a reltive I have only met once. I have this fear of being the one chosen to keep the family lore alive tio pass on to those who follow me.

I know that as well as you do...the problem is that I never expected to be the caretaker for my family. There are days when I'd like to have a life of my own, for Freja's sake. I know it sounds like I am whining right now, and maybe I am. I just really don't know if I have what it takes to take over all the things mom does.

I'd be willing to bet money you do.
