Saying Goodbye....

It's never easy is it?  

And yet we somehow manage to do it and go on our merry way, getting wrapped up in the crazy bizzy-ness that life is.  

Today I had to say goodbye.  

It wasn't easy.  

It's not going to be easy.  

This one will be tough because I have been left with a little hole in my heart.  Saying good bye to someone that is such a big part of my life.   

 Gina, myself and Iva the deserter!

Yes...there is the phone/chat/text/email and even Skype.  But it's not the same.  There isn't any more....hey what are you doing at noon...wanna go to lunch?  shopping?  come over and help me on this project???  


No, that's not a simple sigh.  

That is a big 'ol dramatic, sad, over the top, blow the wind out of your sails... sigh. 

I said goodbye with a smile on my face.  I gave a big hug and took a mental picture as I drove away...and I told her I was taking that picture...and we laughed about only we can. 

Then I cried quiet alligator tears the whole way home. 

Tomorrow...I'm staying in bed.  

I'm going to refuse to get up.  

I'm going to be cranky and hard to get along with.

I'm going to make the kids make their own lunch (that won't go over well).

Shoot....they can make their own breakfast too (sounds like I won't be the only cranky in the house)!!

I'm going to lay there and feel sorry for myself....that a little piece of me is gone....


OH heck...

Who am I kidding?  I'm going to bury myself in Bizzy-ness and try to be happy and move on with life....because I have to plan a trip to Florida !!

When I heard she was moving, my heart skipped a beat and I just met her!!

But, oh, boy, what fun you'll have when you go visit Iva in Florida! I hear St. Augustine is just beautiful!!!

Oh Colleen...I went thru this 5 yrs ago when my best pal moved a thousand miles away.I to drove home from saying goodbye in tears and I did go to bed for 2 days. I still cry when we visit and it's time to leave...I'm not going to tell you it will be easy...but I am going to tell you it gets better after awhile, and skype,phone calls and email do help :)...Big Hugs to you both!
