“Parting is such sweet sorrow” my eye!

For those of you "out there" who have had the unfortunate "pleasure" to have family members or loved ones move away, you can sympathize with me when I say that it just sucks. I recently had a sister, brother-in-law, and an adorable niece and nephew move far, far away. And I do not like it. I know they moved out there for a reason and there wasn't anything I could do about it, but I miss them a lot. And I also know that the rest of my family misses them a lot and it's hard to see them all so sad about it. I miss my niece waking me up in the morning when she slept over. I miss my loveable Benny Boy's smile. I miss talking to my sister and brother. So whoever said parting is such sweet sorrow didn't know jack! Well, actually it's nice to say goodbye to the people you don't much care for. But it's when you do care that it makes so much more sorrowful than sweet.

On a different note, three weeks and then summer semester will be over and I will be that much closer to a degree. It's so close, I can smell it. And that smell kind of scares me. Who knows where I will be in one year from now?!


  1. Ah...I am sorry they moved away. WHere did they move? yay, you are getting closer to being done with school!

  2. Oh, Maurie! I miss you too! I am so sorry that we have caused such sadness. It doesn't seem fair that Scott's employment has separated our family. I know my kids miss you as well. Keep praying that we will return in a few years! I can't wait to see you all again.
