I miss you already!

And just like that...
My shopping buddy, gym partner and Best friend...
And, my big bowl of happiness... 
Pulled out of the driveway, and went away!

Tonight I will take my usual 5:30PM spin class but it won't be the same or nearly as much fun because my mom will be missing from the front row. My dad carried Bing and snuggled with him so much that I'm afraid it's going to take him a whole week to figure out how to get around on his own four paws again. Sigh...

They've been gone less than an hour and already I miss them so very much. I am grateful to have today off... Let's me cry my eyes out in peace.

This is going to be a crazy week of adjustments and highs and lows for all of us. Mom and dad are on their way back to Atlanta now for their flight home tomorrow morning while Army dad and I are packing up for our 11th trip down to Ft. Benning - This time, to see our Ranger graduate from Ranger School.

A week of extreme happiness and uncontrollable tears. Then more happiness, and more tears.

But you know what? I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world... Because all this heartache means I have people to love and people in my life that love me back.


  1. It is always so hard to say good bye! Whether we are living in the States or in Germany... when ever I have to send off family or friends, I cry. It makes for a difficult day. Though, of course, I'm glad they came!

  2. Congrats to the Ranger on his graduation!! I hope you can enjoy the highs more than dwelling on the lows this coming week.

  3. It's wonderful that your Mom and Dad were able to come see you. And now, your Ranger graduates! That's wonderful too! Congratulations to your family and your son!
