Saying Goodbye Sucks

Last night, Vicki and I met my friend Tanya and her girls Katelyn and Kacie at McDonald's to say goodbye. They are moving back to Massachusetts at the end of this week.



Tanya and Steve moved out here about two months after we did, almost 8 years ago. We didn't know each other back east, but before I left, I was working with a good friend of hers. Once Tanya moved out here, we had many days of hanging out at my house, at the pool, or taking the kids to McDonald's to play. Going to White Tanks to BBQ, playing pool in her garage, passing out in her bed next to Steve (long story), and driving around looking for a Dunkin' Donuts; all great memories!



Saying goodbye sucks, so I won't say it. I'll say "See you soon" or "See you later" or "See you in the summer", but I will not say goodbye.



Don't forget your friends out west! You will be missed! Have a safe trip! Love ya!

Yeah, it's always tough to say good-bye to friends. At least with the internet and cell phones and the like you won't lose touch completely.

"Ciao for now" works for me! When you're homesick, you're homesick and they'll be much happier back home! And you just have another reason to visit!

I'm moving too soon, but haven't quite told anyone but you. It's hard moving. Hard saying goodbye...

Mcdonalds is the best meeting place. My girlfriends meet up there every once inahwile for lunch.
