An Emptiness in My Home

My Mom and The Great Omnipotent One left today. I’m kind of depressed. My life is just so ‘Right’ when they’re around. They are such good people, so damn funny, the two of them.

The light hearted banter in the morning over coffee as my Mom needles TGOO for sleeping on her side of the bed. TGOO doing the crossword, asking Mom and I questions we have no answer to. I take that back, Mom can help him brain storm an answer. I’m pretty much useless.

Mom making tea for my boys in the afternoon. TGOO throwing the ball to the boys or pitching to them in the backyard.

All three of us kids feel this way when we leave my folks or they leave us. They had been at Morrigan’s house before they came to see us. She called me while they were driving and she is yelling, “You stole my parents! I miss them already!”

10 more weeks and we go to Pensacola. I’m counting down.

I know exactly how you feel. I hope to be going home to my mom's in July. Just not sure exactly when.

This is exactly why we're moving home.

I love the relationship you and Morrigan have with your parents! It's not common unfortunately and am very jealous :-) Just sounds like such a great family.

Very cool family, with the exception of Morrigan.

Heh. I gotta make sure she sees this...

Um...she did :-)

WE have THE coolest parents in the world. My mama left today and it will be 7 months before she passes this way again ( unless I road trip it to Nova Scotia between now and Nov.). It always breaks me up to say good bye to her.
Is TGOO still doing his crosswords in pencil??
