Lots of thoughts swirling around, it's just been a busy errand-filled week - always that way before we go away.

Friday night I got the sad news that my aunt had died. She's my last aunt. She is survived by her husband, my last uncle, but I doubt for long.

One of my buds made the comment on how she envied my curves, since she's not a curvy girl. It took me a really, really long time to embrace those curves myself.
