Saying Goodbye is the Hardest Part

I hate the feeling of being in limbo... When I'm at my parents I am "home" but then I have to leave and go to "my home" which doesn't always feel like one, especially when I'm homesick... Weird to be homesick when you are sitting in your living room, huh? Right now I am in that limbo... I am about to say goodbye to my family and even though I know I very well may be back within the month to go to Disneyland for my birthday, it is still hard... My brother likes to do this pushing away thing that always makes it harder... He means well but it always makes me feel worse... Toby and I are upset with each other because he wants to go home and I really don't... I just got to know Amy and her kids and I am not ready to say goodbye yet... I don't feel like I got to see everyone I wanted to see (but I never do, there is just not enough time in each trip)... I try to avoid the "G" word altogether by just saying "See you soon" but it doesn't work all the time... I am dreading a 6 hour drive with someone who is frustrated with me... Sometimes I suspect that Toby avoids coming down here because he hates to see me like this, he knows I would love to live close to my family, but we really can't afford it (a friend of mine just bought a house smaller than the one we almost bought this summer and it was just as much of a fixer, it cost almost 3 times as much)... I know I can't get them to move to me, and I can't imagine how hard it would be if we lived further away... THis is making me antsy, I should probably go try to enjoy the last hour I have with my family instead of holing myself up in my brothers room blogging about how bummed I am... If my fam is reading this, I love you guys and, clearly, I miss you already (and leave a stinkin' comment cuz I want to know when you read this)!

Green is my favorite color and your blog just cheers me so! I know how hard it is to say, "goodbye" so I think you should sign up for the frequent flier miles through Southwest...you get a free flight just for signing up and you could use it next month! :-)

Thank you so much for all your encouragement during the past few weeks with my mom's cancer battle...I so appreciate it, and look forward to staying in touch. I wish you and your family many blessings in 2009!

I just got my award up, and need to figure out how to get it to link to your site. Thanks so much for doing that for me! I haven't ever gotten one before and I felt honored! Thanks Lena Loo! BTW, my mom's friend Georgia Pomerantz knows Liz M. very well...did you mom know Georgia? Thanks again for your kindness! :-)

Sounds like we both live in two different cities (emotionally, anyway). And we probably share similar dual cities ... Sacto and SoCal somewhere?
