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?
