Thanksgiving was great, starting with a 3 mile run around the park in town, an extremely frustrating Lions game (dont get me started on that ruling......), great food, a wrestling match with my husband and a coconut cream pie (my mad ninja skills failed me and I lost).
|Isn't she pretty??|
The fact that my parents are moving next week finally registered during my run this morning (yes, I got 3 in this morning.....29 degrees, light snow fall, and a mile or of it was down a quiet, tree lined road...peaceful.)
It strange to say "good-bye" to the house you grew up in. I dont miss living here....I didnt cry when we left in 2009 to move to Nebraska and I dont think Ill cry today, but it is still strange to know that I will never come back to visit this house again. I wasnt a runner when I lived here, so I cant say Ill miss my old running routes, but I am a runner now, and have a long list of places I would love to get a training run in sometime. But those times are gone. I cant blame my parents....both Little Brother and I are out west, so that is where they are headed. And Im happy for them, but a little sad at the same time. When we moved to Nebraska, we always knew we could come back and visit whenever we wanted, but now, there isnt anything (family) to come back and visit, so it wont be happening. And if we do come back and visit (friends!!) then we wont be coming back to THIS house.
Its really nothing new for me, but its a final goodbye. This time, its not see you later...its goodbye.
