{the last supper}

Still in my p.j.'s & packin' the kitchen with my mom. Little Zoey, in the background, has been ready to help in any way she can.

Tonight was "the last supper" with my family. We gathered at mom & dad's & had takeout from my favorite local bbq place. We played a few games of Wii bowling, tennis & baseball & had apple crisp for dessert. And then it was time to say goodbye to my brother & his family. I hugged my little brother & just lost it. I never thought it would be this hard to say goodbye. Really, I haven't had time to even think about the "goodbyes". And it just hit me hard tonight. I hugged him real good & just wailed & bawled & weeped. It just suddenly came over me. But my sweet brother is a sensitive soul. Which meant that he was wailing & bawling & weeping too. We were a pair, he & I. It wasn't pretty at all.
And then, on the sidelines, mom joined in.


  1. Aww. I'm such a sap, I'm all teary eyed now. I have said "Goodbye" too many times, and it was for good. Never to see or speak to people again. :(

    This is NOT the case with you. It's not goodbye. It's just see ya. You and your family and friends will stay in touch, and it'll be fine.

    I'm keeping you all in my prayers. I know how hard it is.

  2. I'm such a wuss, this made me tear up. I'm sorry things are starting to hit you now. Hugs to you hon.

  3. Sounds like a lovely way to say goodbye. Travel safely Whimsy Loves. Lisa.

  4. Oh man- this totally reminded me of when we left Florida. I was 9, Travis was 6 and I cried. I didn't "get" that we weren't coming back. The last memory I have of that night was getting gas at the gas station and crying until I fell asleep. And now, oddly enough, everytime I've been to Florida, I cry when we get there- like I'm coming home or something.

  5. aw nik - i've been reading every 'moving' post religiously and are with you all the way - in spirit!

    saying goodbye is hard, which is why 'see ya later' is always easier to say hehe


  6. same here baby....
