Saying Good-bye

I was reading on Pioneer Woman about her 10 blogging tips.  She had some great ideas, but the one I took to heart the most was "Be Yourself."  I loved how she mentioned how she wrote like she talked to her sister.  There has not been much going on this week in our lives, and, I will admit, it has been nice.  However, it has left little to the blogging.  However, today was a sad day  . . . .

It seems like just yesterday I was saying a good-bye like this.  I was not ready for today - really I wasn't.  I kept thinking that this would be postponed a little longer.  I mean, I knew the day was coming.  I had told Damon just last week that I did not think it would be long.  However, it came faster than I was ready for. 

It's hard to say good-bye when you know they are always going to be there - for your best days - for your worst days - for those days you just want to curl up do nothing at all.  I mean you just have some that fit you better than others.  Everyone has a lot of them in your life, but, as with everything, some are just better fit for you!  This is how I felt about  . . . . .

MY FAVORITE PAIR OF BLUE JEANS!!!!!

Yes, just a few minutes ago I had to say good-bye.  There was really no other thing to do.  This afternoon I sat on the floor to scrapbook and realized that they were no longer "outside the house" appropriate - even though I completely forgot and wore them outside the house!!! Oops!!!!  I am NOT a clothes horse by ANY means. I think know Damon has a TON of more clothes than I do!!  It's just those fit me.  They wore well.  They knew if I wanted to look cute, comfortable, or just be the mom I am. I know I have others in my closet.  I know they are just as good and, maybe, one day, they will be THAT pair of jeans.  Until then . . .

maybe that blue pair of abercrombie kids sweats will fit the bill!!!

My eyes were really starting to tear up...HAHA!!! I hate when my favorite pair are no longer wearable...or as the case has been lately, I just can't wear them (look for a blog post about that one). Good luck finding your next favorite pair!!
