JOSIEEEEE. Friend of my heart. She is in town with her family for a wedding, and to go down to Disneyland, but most importantly, to meet me at the park this morning and let me cry all over her. It is perhaps no secret that I am not coping super well. I just thought this would be easier. Major life change is hard, who knew.
But, like, I'm generally a flexible and positive person! I thought I would be doing so much better at this! But on the other hand, people in BC are insufferable about how great their province is YOU GUYS IT IS NOT THAT GREAT. Random strangers being smug at me when they find out we just came from Saskatoon and being like, Oh yeah? And there was like nothing to do there? I bet you're so glad to be in BC now. It makes me want to list off a dozen things that were amazing about Saskatoon OR a dozen things that suck about this town, like ok you have mountains but you can only look at them for so long and your damn beaches are all ROCKS and your parks are all bark mulch and why do I even own sand toys, there is no sand for miles.
Bark mulch is the worrrrrrst. But ok Josie. My partner in positivity. Being around Josie reminds me what I like about myself, what I find beneficial about a positive outlook. We are going to adapt, we are going to be fine, we are going to get used to Cultus and its stupid rock beaches and the pain of losing all of our very excellent parks is going to recede. I am going to miss Josie FOREVER but life is hard and that's ok and we have facetime.
I miss her already again, though.
