All Packed Up & Not Ready To Go


Pops and Momsey are all packed up, but I am not ready for them to go. They have been here for 18 days, and it's just not enough. It never is. We have had such a good time (as I'm sure you have been able to tell from all of my pics and posts) and it is never easy to tell them goodbye when the visits come to an end. And this time, it is going to be even harder than normal when we take them to the airport tomorrow. Normally, at the end of each visit, we go ahead and plan out the "timeline" for when we will see each other again. Since we are still adjusting economically from Ryan's three back surgeries, and since my wedding schedule is extremely busy this summer (Trust me... this is a good thing! I'm not complaining) it doesn't look like we will be able to make a trip down to SC until sometime after the second week of November. So unless we are able to get Pops & Momsey to make another trip this way before then, it looks like we are going to have to suffer through a 6 month stretch without seeing each other. Even though I'm fairly certain that all it would take is a few phone calls from Reagan begging them to come back, I'm actually crying as I type this from the mere thought of having to wait that long.

If you don't hear from me for a few days or weeks, don't worry. I'm sure that I will be fine. But it may take me awhile to come out from my hiding spot under the covers as I wallow in my own misery. Of course, I guess I will have to get out of bed to come downstairs to pour more wine. And to reminisce about our fantastically fun visit as I watch some of the crazy videos we made while Pops & Momsey were here. Here's a couple for you to see just how wild we all can be!

I hate being so far away from my family too. We moved to the East coast and live near all of my hubby's family, but mine all live on the west coast. I get to see them a couple times a ear, but it is not enough so I understand!

I totally get it. We lived in Iceland for 3 and a half years. When my oldest was born, we saw someone from home at least every 3 months. After a year of that, it slowed down. My middle daughter was almost 7 months old before one set of grandparents met her. Even every 3 months didn't seem like enough.

I get this .. it is so hard whenever my mom leaves and since it has gotten so expensive to fly she doesn't come as often :(
I love the videos!!

Six months really isn't that long. It's been over a year since you have seen me :(

Your videos are hilarious! Your daughter pulling her pants down almost made me pimp laughing. My daughter does that too! Love it!

Oh, how I hate seeing family leave. I think I cried ever time I left my parents house to go back to college. That is the main reason we still live in the same town as our parents.
To cheer you up come over to my blog I have an award for you!

Ahh, I am feeling so sad for you right now!
Well, the videos are cute, and maybe they will help pass the time...
Or, maybe my visit {in which your husband shows me the set of New Moon, and I kiss edward's lips} will help pass time?
Until then?
Do some artwork! I can't wait to see what she can do!

It is so hard to have to say goodbye for long periods of time! Thinking of you this week as you adjust to life without the grandparents again!

I just hate when family leaves after visiting. I feel so lost. Hope you are getting back into your "normal" routine without them.
