I realized tonight that I totally forgot to do the Koffee Klatch for Friday. Spacey Fibro brain here, more lately it seems.

I will post a topic for tonight and then it's time for the Koffee Klatch to take a summer vacation, or winter for those of you down under. I've noticed lately, except for a couple of days, that the responses on the Koffee Klatch have been very minimal. Toward the end of summer we'll revisit the idea and see if everyone wants it to return or maybe try something else or nothing at all. It's all up to the members since this is our forum.

But for today...how are you at saying "Good Bye" even if it's only for a short time? If you have kids going off to college is it hard to let them go? If you parents are leaving for a 2 week trip are you sad to see them go? What about leaving your pet at a boarding kennel or friends house...does it tear your heart out? What's your style?

For me I can't leave the dog behind...just not in me. She's like one of the family and since we travel with a trailer in tow we don't ask anyone else to house her. Plus our dogs are always well trained and we don't ask to take her in anyone else's home. But most often people are coming over to give her loves. As far as saying goodbye to people....it depends on the person. With my kids I'm good about that now days. But the grandkids are another story. When they are crying in their car seats and pleading..."I want to stay with you, Grandma"...I have to hold it in until I get to the house and then the tears pour. Now these are kids I see more than once a week! I will admit to one thing when it comes to my husband...once in a while I still get tears when he goes to work. I know it's silly but I can't help it. I did that for the first several years we were married (been married 16+ years now) but most times I'm OK with it. But I do get up and pack his lunch and see him off each morning. No way I could sleep while he gets up and goes to work. Nope, can't do it.!...lol

How are you at saying Good Bye?

They never really bothered me "goodbye's" Until my girls left for college. Now, I stink at it!! I try to make it seem like I'm fine, or I''m o.k. but, then I go into some denial... then later BAM! it hits me. A few hours later I get emotional and usually end up crying.

Oh Chutz, please don't abandon the Koffee Klatch. I would miss it so badly if it weren't here. I'm sure there are a lot of others who feel this way. Please reconsider.

As for goodbye, My youngest daughter was here for the weekend. I don't get to see her but once or twice a year. When she left I cried. I still miss her so much.

I feel a little melancholy when my grandkids leave too. They just live down the street, but they love it here and they play with Grandpa the whole time. He is so good with kids too. I cannot have them on top of me right now, since I am recovering from surgery, but soon.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

Hey Chutz , I don't blame you for wanting a break , its difficult to come up with something every day and deal with your physical challenges too . It should have been done by a group of volounteers , maybe each one choosing a day of the week to be responsible for , but I totally understand your position . I hate goodbye's and love hello's ,one good thing an upcoming goodbye can bring important truths out of folks I've found . Mikel

Hi guys...

Thanks for the kind words. The people in the fibro forum had similar comments so I've decided to only take a 2 week break or so. Then the Koffee Klatch will return. That will give me a refresher.

Take care...
Chutz

Hi Chutzie,

Sorry that I haven't been participating in the Koffee Klatch as regularly as I used to. Over the past 6 moths or so, it has been getting harder & harder for me to read on the computer screen. I often have to pick & choose only a few posts to read & reply to, but please don't stop them forever. I do enjoy them, although I can certainly understand you wanting to take a break (it's got to be a lot of work). So, take a break, go play with your puppy, & don't worry about us!

hugs,
Skeye

Chutz,
Maybe you could do a weekly one instead of daily, if that would take a little pressure off of you. Or at least every other day. Sometimes when we get a good one it seems to go on for a few days. Just a thought.
