Puzzle Pieces

Happy Friday! It's been a good week back to work. I really missed the kids. They bombarded me with hugs and it felt good to be missed. One of the problem children that I had a number of incidents with got expelled so that made it a lot better. He had kicked, hit, scratched and spit on me! Pretty sad for a 5 year old in my humble opinion.

When my bio sister, Tess and I met, she gave me my original certificate of birth. I was doing some filing the other day and ran across it. I saw that it had a San Jose address so I decided to go check it out. I Google Earthed the address so I knew in advance what it looked like. It is across the street from Bill Wilson Center which makes a lot of sense. Bill Wilson is one of the cofounders of Alcoholics Anonymous and there are two centers here locally that provide counseling for both adults and youth.

It is interesting to be able to piece the timeline of my youth after all these years. It has forever changed me and sometimes I think I opened a can of worms but all in all I'm glad I searched and glad I found out all I did. I know a lot of reunions don't work out so I'm grateful.

It's going to be a nice springlike weekend. Need to dust Phoebe off and get out in the fresh air. Sunday I will have my annual corned beef sandwich. Don't do cabbage and don't like boiled potatoes so that will save calories. I don't really want to drink so I can avoid those extra calories too. Until next time...
