|I like turkey....|
That song is really speaking to me right now. Half of my heart has a grip on the situation and the other half is pretty much losing it. We had our packing/goodbye party tonight. A lot of people came: Brian's grandma, mom and Doug; Gary; Sam; Jerry; Leane; Ashley and the girls; Liz and Jay; and my mom and Dad. Josh was also here obviously (he lives here). We have the U-haul all loaded and have been staying up all night so we can do some running around this morning and sleep during the day and then drive to Tomah. Gary and Josh are riding in the truck w/the U-Haul, Brian and I are riding in the Kia with Lisa.
I am so sad, I have just been a ball of tears. I'm going to miss Ashley, the girls, my sister, my Dad and my Mom so much. My mom is pretty much my best friend (w/Ashley). I got a little bit mad at Leane because she stomped away when my mom and I were hugging goodbye and crying, saying "I can't handle this girly shit." Excuse me? It is the last time I will see my mom until Thanksgiving and I'm moving 10 hours away, I think crying is justified. Other than that the party was awesome. I gave the girls each a tube of chapstick, because they know I always have it on me and then they ALWAYS ask me for it when they see me. This way they can use the chapstick I gave them and they can think of me. Meridee told her mom that it was the best present she has ever gotten :(.
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to move because Brian has a job... It is just all so fast, plus bittersweet. I'm moving away from EVERYONE. I won't have anyone in Tomah except for Brian and Lisa. My closest family is 4 hours away in Chicago. Its just sad. I know I'll make new friends, but still, I want my family and my old friends!
Anyway this will probably be my last post until we get the internet all set up in Tomah. I will have to catch up and post then, although I'm not sure how long it will take. Maybe not until Monday or Tuesday.
Gosh I'm tired...
