I recieved some very sad news yesterday. I was warned it might happen, but kept telling myself it wouldn't happen, of course not, it can't happen!

Some of the people I love most in the world are moving. Moving! Five whole hours away. Moving!! How will I make it without my boyfriend? And J without his girlfriend? And of course their darling baby sister Bear. And did you know that Mama R was preggars again? Yes she is. I will never know the 4th R like I know the others and that makes me sad. Also, she keeps having babies so that I don't have to so what the heck am I supposed to do now? Huh? Answer me that!

Words cannot express how sad I am to see the lovely R's go. Who on earth can possibly take care of those kids and love them like I do? No one! That's who!

Also, how selfish is their mother to move and then take the kids with her? She doesn't need all those kids? She's having a fourth and therefore can leave the others with me. I've already forwarned her that I very well may lie across the driveway and forbade them to get out on moving day. Or, or, or....chain myself to the children's legs. It's going to be pretty hard to put them in carseats with me on their legs now isn't it? Bet she didn't think of that.

In the wake of my sadness J and I went to our favorite Old Mexico or Cinco de Mayo. Like any good sad Southern girl would do I cried in my beer and ate two baskets of chips. Yessiree. We're happy? We eat! Sad? We eat! Mad? We eat! Excited? We eat! You get the picture. Can I get an Amen Addy and Mrs. S?

If you're a long time reader you'll know that there are approximately 4,623 references to these children on here and that I spend many a weekend night at their house. Now what will I do?

I may never have a double date again.

Who will my boyfriend dye Easter eggs with next year?

Who will we take to the zoo? We always took those kids to the zoo. A few times a year. That will never be the same.

And who will take Christmas limo rides around town with my kids? Huh?

My darling boyfriend, I hope you never forget that I'm your one true love, and you, mine.

I'm so sorry :-( That REALLY sucks. When best friends move away, that is just so hard. I can't imagine how upsetting this must be.

Wow, I'm sorry that they are moving away. Five hours isn't really that far away! The more times you drive it, the shorter it will seem :)

Here's my Amen regarding the eating!

It really is so hard when best friends move. Our best friends moved to North Carolina (we live in Arkansas) so we don't see them that often...maybe 6 or 7 times a year. We make sure to talk on the phone every week though!

On the food thing -- Not only do I say Amen, but hell yeah!!! There is only one way to sooth hurt feelings and that is yummy food! And of course if you can't dround your regret in food, you can always drink your cares away! I am good with either!
