a metaphor (indulge me)

,

I’ve mentioned on this blog that my sister is going to be my neighbor soon. She’s moving into a foreclosed one-bedroom apartment one building away from mine…once the bank gets their shit together and actually allows her to close and get in there.

What hobbies are you making responsibilties?

Where my type-A girls at?! Ummm…hello! Right here. Yep, that’s me.
