My mom said something to me while I was watching a movie with Dad over Christmas. She said "Remember, moms make Christmas." I asked her where this came from, and she said that she was really missing her mom this Christmas.

How soon will it be when it's me missing my mom over Christmas? My mom is turning 60 this year and that fact hasn't bothered me till just now. How many Christmases, or days in general, do I have with her? And considering I only get to see her a few times a year now that I live in Florida, it's a scary thought. Not to mention, my dad is 65. My parents feel like all I have right now, since all my friend making efforts in Florida haven't borne much fruit. Not to mention I still suck at being a responsible adult and depend on them a lot for help and advice.

We were talking about going to the D23 Expo in August and Mom said it might be our last trip together. She clarified by saying it's because I'll probably have a job and stuff by then, but yeah, so didn't help. Not to mention a job will mean I will see less of her then I do now. Soooo didn't help.

I really wish I could stop thinking about this but for some reason, it's at the forefront of my brain right now. I couldn't sleep last night because of it. Plus general thoughts on death. What is it to just not have someone there anymore? To never see them again? What does it feel like to die? To just not wake up, to know that your life is over, that's it? Heavy shit I know and it's like I can feel the minutes ticking away when I think about it. Like, what am I doing with my life? Is it all worth it when there's nothing at the end?

I wish I could say writing this out has helped, but it hasn't. I just want the thoughts to stop, to be blissfully ignorant and careless about the subject again.

Really, as much as it feels like home, I wish I hadn't come back to Florida. I want to be home with my parents right now.

Yeah. I go for months without updating LJ and you all get this. Sorry.

Oh man, I hate those sort of thoughts. I've had them a fair bit over the past year, and ultimately, I decided I needed to just focus on the present and the things I'm doing now in order to stay productive and not lay in bed all day. Sometimes it isn't easy, though. One good thing about it is that it's changed the way I look at life and made me a more active participant in it. These thoughts kind of suck, but maybe they'll prompt you to keep in better contact with your parents, maybe plan trips with them despite what your mom says?

See, I'm totally a momma's girl. My mother was in the military so I barely saw her when I was a little kid so since then we've spent a lot of time together to make up for. I call her every day. So the thought of her not being there is scary.

But yeah. This happens at least once a year but I think this hit home more because I realized I won't get to go home to Virginia as much once I finally get a permanent job, which is finally looming on the horizon (which is it's own relief because holy shit it took long enough).

And thanks <3333
