Goodbyes have started

I said my first goodbye yesterday. I visited my friend V (actually what I call her - it's not just an initial to protect her identity lol!) in upstate NY for the holiday weekend. It was funny because even after arriving at 10pm, after a six hour drive, we managed to stay up talking and being silly until 6am. It was like we reverted to 12 year old girls at a slumber party. It was a relatively low-key weekend, not a whole lot of craziness, but we definitely got into a number of really long conversations. And as we got closer to Monday, we were both realizing that I was going to be saying goodbye soon, except unlike previous goodbyes, this one was going to be for awhile. One of us would kind of groan and start to mention the impending goodbye, but that was the one conversation I'd cut short each time.

Saying goodbye was very sad. I really can't wrap my brain around the fact that I'll be doing it over and over again over the next few weeks.

Also, on a completely different note: thank you ToadMama for my kick ass new header!


  1. You're welcome! Since you were the first (and only one so far) person to notice my moving frog, it was the least I could do.

    You're lucky I had lots of time on my hands today. This image, an early experiment, almost made it into the header! Then I realized it way TACKY. LOL

  2. For the record I also noticed the moving frog...I just failed to mention it. :)

    I am going to miss you like crazy. I was just thinking today that I may have to just invest in a web cam cause I don't think I like the idea of not being able to see you for a whole year.

    I told Karl as we watched you drive off that we managed to avoid crying together. I mention it only because it was really hard. I'm so glad you were here.
