"There Was Always Something More Important To Do"

You know what I've been thinking about lately, but not in a sad and tear-filled morbid way? My Grandma.

Okay, let's be real. There were a little bit of tears, but not a lot.

Anyway, she's been on my mind a lot because of all the family that has come back in my life lately: the uncle who left her house angry and didn't look back; the cousins who have nothing but fond memories of her food and love; my Papi who's back in NY, looking thinner and older than I remember him.

And when I think about how preoccupied I am playing around on Twitter, hustling to find work, partying like a rock star, dating, etc, and how more often than not I put my family on the back burner expecting them to just wait on me, it makes me sad. Like I didn't learn my lesson from the last time I failed to keep in touch with a loved one and then she DIED.

It has to stop. I need to make it stop.

I'm stopping it. NOW.

Nothing is more important than my family.

I don't know about y'all, but I don't want any(more) regrets in my life.

*smooches...not sweating all the events I'm missing*
nothing beats snuggling w/my babies anyway. Except Prince in concert... I will abandon these heffas for Prince in concert!
