Wow, what a change from the July I did have planned, which included a wedding, a honeymoon and a goodbye party. Now we’re putting the kibosh on the goodbye party too.
I just don’t feel like it.
If you look at my schedule for July, you’d understand why.
- July 5-8th we’re away for a family reunion and to say goodbye to my mom
- July 9th-14th we’re in NYC for our honeymoon
- July 15-16 I have to bring my sister back home with our cat in tow
- July 27/28 we leave for Kansas
In between the 16th and the 27/28th, we have to clean the house, finish up packing, and have movers here too, so there really is no time at all for a goodbye party. I thought I’d feel bad about it to be honest, but I really don’t care actually. I am going miss a handful of people, one group especially being my grief support group. Not really grief support anymore, but we met in January 2010, and attended a 6 week grief workshop at the local hospital. We’re still getting together once a month for lunch. These ladies are all like my grandma’s…I will really miss our monthly lunches together.
So here’s my proposition to you, my friends, who are reading this:
If you want to say goodbye, let me know, and we’ll plan something. We’ll go have lunch, we’ll go to Starbucks, anything. I’m not going to make a huge effort to say goodbye to everyone because I’m so busy, so I hope that I mean enough to you for you to say goodbye to me. Thanks to the few that have already said they’d like to do this 🙂
