Letting Down Elle for All the Right Reasons

Elle is sad.

Elle is incredibly homesick and I meant to cheer her up with a visit. I call her every day, but she is still lonely and struggling and I was more than ready to drive the eighteen hours each way if it meant seeing a smile on her gorgeous face. However, my colorado trip was cancelled because my dad called me last minute and told me I had to come home to take care of my mom and sister and wolf. He forgot he was going out of town that weekend.

This has been a recurring theme throughout my life: cancel on friends and be unreliable to them because I have to take care of my family. Sometimes, it can drive me crazy to be forced to let down others to be home when needed. It can be frustrating to have a mentally unstable parent, but I love her.

Sometimes priorities suck.
