Interview Tomorrow!!! And....Mom.

Not for me...Eric's Apple interview is tomorrow. He is super nervous about it, I can tell. However I know he will be superb. The training starts in February, so actually we would have less time than I thought to save money and move to Austin!!! That's okay though, because I know no matter what happens, (not to quote a great song or anything, but) every little thing is going to be all right.
I have been spending more and more time with my mother lately (as in, over the last four days...maybe a couple hours a day), and I just have to say it- no matter how insane she is- she is one hell of a lady. Sometimes her actions are outrageous, but she's very good at looking back on them (even if just moments later) and acknowledging their outrageousness, and either pointing it out, or apologizing for it. I think that no matter how awful the situation between her and my dad is, I will always be on her side, because I think it took a lot of strength to do what she did, and she deserves to be happy. Not that my dad doesn't deserve to be happy, but he needs to make himself happy and not have to rely on others for happiness. I realize what I am saying is pretty obvious and dull, but I know sometimes my mom feels awful for leaving him, and I wish that she didn't have to.
Lately her and I have grown closer, not so much as mother and daughter but as two adult women who know what they want in life just as much as they don't have a clue. It's astounding to me how very alike we are, and I feel like if I didn't have so much of her instilled in me, I wouldn't have a chance in this world.
That's all I have for now. Keep Eric in your thoughts for tomorrow! We want to move to Austin!!!!
