I have been planning a long needed trip even though I recently took a trip in Febuary of 2010 to Louisiana. When I went to Louisiana, I was not able to do some thing, to go certain places, or see certain people like my little sister (Shelly). Taking this trip will allow me to see Shelly, and get to know her and her family on our terns instead of the terms set by our mother twelve years ago on a trip which was the last time I saw Shelly.
Shelly has been, and I know will continue to, if not already, be the main source of support. She has given me my hope back when I felt all hope may be lost. Therefore my first stop would be in Plano, Texas. I feel that no less than two week-ends and one five day week is a necessity just to fully get in touch with her. Then, of course, I'll need her help to get me to the next stop in my trip which I am hoping for at least a three to five day stay at the cabin on the lake.
Needing to get my body in the lake for some much needed healing. Toledo Bend Damn Lake (Florien, Louisiana) is on the border of Texas and Louisiana with the Sabine River suppling the water. It is one of the largest man-made lakes in the United States. It is a red clay lake which gives the lake minerals. Up until my twelth year of life, I would spend two weeks out of my summers spending them at the cabin with my paternal grandparents. Presently my paternal grandmother (Momo) who is ninty-two years young resides still at that cabin.
Then I must be off to Lake Charles, Louisiana where my maternal grandmother (Mimi) resides at also ninty-two years young. I would like to at least spend two to thrww days with her without my mother having the knowledge that I am there because the last ting I wish to do is inflict any suffering she (Barbara) may cause while I am there.
From there I am wishing for my new girlfriend (Jen) to pick me up, so that we may go off into the sunrise (since we will be heading East) to begin a possible future together. We just will not know unless we give it a going for. I just hope that I am and will be the person she hopes I am. She seems to be, at least in my eyes, a very bright, well-rounded, and down to Earth person who has a good head on her shoulders. She knows where she has been and knows where she wants to go. This is a commendable trait to have and she seems to have it inside of her.
Now making it work will mean that I will get to see her on the seventeenth of October in the year 2010.
