Another Set of Goodbyes

This week has been a lot of goodbyes for me. It started out with me spending the weekend with my brother Josh, his wife Courtney and baby Tanner. It was fun. Courtney and I spend some good time taking Tanner to the beach and feeding him my personal favorite, Taco Bell. I tried to give him part of a burrito, but he isn't quite ready for it. He pulled it apart rather than consuming it. Such a rookie mistake...ha, ha! I did have tons of fun hanging with Tanner. He gets more and more fun every time I see him. After saying goodbye to them, I spent the afternoon with a friend...Kat. It was fun hanging with her and her fam. It was actually calming and nice to feel normal with someone again...not just thinking about all I have to say goodbye to. Then on to some time with the sister in law, Carli. We partied it up...yeah, she fell asleep while we were watching a movie! But, I did get to go with her to do something with cows at 1 in the morning! We hit up 7-11 for slurpees on the way home and that made it all worth it.

Then on to Modesto. I spent the week at Chandra's house. I have never stayed with her because my family is usually in town, but this was a treat. It definitely opened my eyes to what life with children is like. But, it was great staying with Chandra. We stayed up late every night watching Grey's Anatomy and went on a couple long walks with the girls. On Thursday, I had to give up my car. Honestly, that was hard. I think my car represented everything tangable I was giving up. And...the waterworks came. When I was driving it to the dealer, I lost it. Then I got out of the car and Chandra and I had a cryfest in the parking lot. But, I had to put on my big girl panties and deal with it. So I wiped my streaked face, went in and gave my car back. Poor car...she was a good one. I will NEVER forget her. On Thursday night me (my mother in law says people in Scotland don't say me, so I guess I need to get it out of my system), Chandra and Laurie went out to dinner. It was fun hanging out and being with some friends.

Now, that brings me to today. Here am I, sitting at the airport waiting for the airplane. This airplane is taking me to Arkansas to see my brother. I am excited about that. I haven't seen him since February. We should have some good times together. I guess there is good and bad to every situation. Goodbye California, hello Jeremy!

  1. I think that I just shed a tear reading about your car. I am so glad that I had a little something to do with that. Who knows...When you get back you will have to see me about getting the 335 convertible. ;-) Miss you guys
