Ode to Tracy and Momma

I miss you so very much today - it physically hurts.

I've reached for the phone several times to call each of you, but just considering dialing sets me off to crying again.

So you probably wouldn't hear much out of me.

Mickey, Daddy, Scooter - Yes, of course, I miss you, too - but today I ache for my girls.

I was sitting at the table eating my lunch, looking outside at the beautiful day, enjoying the nice, cool weather...listening to so much more 'wildlife' than I used to hear....thinking about how nice it is here -- and how nice it was last weekend when we had all the (ack!) in-laws over...and there were 15 boys and men out in the driveway shootin' hoops together ... and there were tons of cars all over our property...

But I was also thinking about how there's just something missing in all of that, nice as it is.

And then I was picturing (completely - you know the actress in me - 'be there!') being at Mic and Tracy's ....

in their beautiful backyard, and how lovely and comfortable it is there...

and then my mind wandered to the fact that people in our family say 'bub' sometimes, and isn't it funny - because they're not saying 'bud' -- perhaps they used to, or do sometimes....whatever.

But then I HEARD Tracy say it! I heard it!

You know when you think of people and sometimes it's hard to 'hear' what their voice sounds like in your memory...

Well, dude - I wasn't even tryin' - and there it was ...."bu-ub" you know how she says it when Scoot is about to do something wrong, that 'warning - bub'.... tickling inside my ears - oh gosh, that set the waterworks again....

Is any of this making sense?

And is an ode supposed to be a poem or something crazy like that? Cuz this ain't

I just miss my Momma and my Tracy and I can't even bloody call 'em to tell 'em that

So I had to blog it

I swear, there's something REALLY GOOD about this move - I've no idea what it is - but I can feel it....but, oh my holy bejeebus - it's HARD!!!!!

And there are definitely more than a few things WRONG with this move! HA! That right there is fodder for a whole new blog - omg - you will be shocked and amazed - and I believe quite entertained....by all of that! Those of you who are lucky enough to be told where that blog lives, that is! It is gonna be one, long complainin' blog - and one some would not want to read....

So anyway - Momma and Tracy ROCK!!! And if you ever live in a town with them - you should never ever never ever move away from them - trust me!!!

Ok that's it for my blathering on - let's see how this new beta thing rolls...
