Since she moved out on her own, our daily chats are more like post it notes. Short and to the point. I really do miss her loud, moody, quirky, silly-self.
Like everyone else, jobs and money have been a speed-bump she's been trying to juggle. This kid has had a job, non-stop, since she was 15. She's a hair stylist, and like everything else, her industry is slowing down. Women are stretching their appointments longer and doing a lot of "do-it-yourself" coloring. (This has been an upside because they usually need a professional to fix it)
Caitlin just turned 21. Her car died. She needed to get another job. She was feeling pretty blue.
This, 2002 Saturn, owned by a little ole' lady only has 36K miles on it. No dirt, stains, chicken-McNuggets or footprints in it.
Happy Birthday Caitlin !
You are a hard worker in life and you're always striving to be better.
I love you,
