I was driving home from work today and out of the blue I decided to call my cousin, Maria. Maria used to live with me until about 20 months ago when she went to Estonia on a mission for our church (LDS/Mormon). I haven’t spoken to her by email for months and by phone since she left. We kinda kept in touch by email until I got mad at her this spring and stopped talking to her. Suddenly, maybe because she likes Ren Fest almost as much as I do, I got the urge to call her and I did.
She seemed happy to hear from me and one thing led to another and guess who is coming to visit for three weeks in August/September. She’ll be here for seven days of Ren Fest, so I’m ordering her a Fairever pass so we can spend as much time there as possible. It was great to talk to her again and I’m ashamed of myself for the estrangement. I think I need anger management classes.
