She’s Leaving on a Jet Plane

Crystal and Sir Beads are feeling a little blueโ€ฆ.

For the past two weeks, their eldest daughter has been stateside for an extended Thanksgiving holiday. Oh, what marvelous escapades she and her younger sister (and those above-mentioned parents!) shared during that time.

However, as we all know, a vacation day has fewer than 24 hours, and a vacation week has no where near 7 days.

Or so it seems.

All too quickly, the visit was over. Suddenly, fully-packed suitcases were waiting by door.

Crystal: “I wish I had squeezed in a couple of extra hugs before we left to take her to the airport. It was so hectic when we got there that I only managed to give one last big hug…”

Sir Beads: “I know.”

Crystal: “I miss her already.” (with tears beginning to fall)

Sir Beads: “Me, too.”

Crystal: “We sure had lots of fun though, didn’t we?” (smiling now)

Sir Beads: “Oh yes!”

Crystal: “I’ll focus on that.”

Sir Beads: “Good idea . . . Give me a hug.”

  1. Here’s a hug from me too!!
    BUT, how wonderful that you got to visit! Those darned kids hook us from day one, then one day we wake up and they have a life of their own and poof! they leave the nest. You did good guys. Some of them NEVVVERRRRR leave.

    Much Love

  2. I ‘m so glad your daughter got to come and stay with you during Thanksgiving. Its amazing how fast the hours and minutes go during the holidays. Here is a hug from me and the furkids, Artie and Kouga.

    I hope is everyone is having some fun this holiday season, it has been so warm here that we took the Harley to look at the Christmas lights on Saturday night.

  3. Hi Kelly,
    Sending love and big hugs right back to you and the boys, as well! xoxoxoxo ๐Ÿ™‚
    We’ve had some of that warmth you mention but then it will suddenly turn freezing cold… and then another warm day pops up. “Pneumonia weather” is what my mother used to call it. Fingers crossed we all avoid colds this winter!

  4. HEY!! What’s this!! You have been doing some redecorating I see. Like it!!

    Aww, you and Sir Beads. You two are soulmates. So sweet together. Glad you had a fun two weeks with your daughters.

  5. Lol, Donna
    You’re on to me! I am redecorating again.
    I may not be finished – still trying to find a combination of widgets I like.

    And thank you for your kind comment. You are the sweet one! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Well here I am…straggling in and always being the last one to comment. I’m so happy to hear about your visit with your daughter!

    Thinking of you and sending lots of hugs!
    hug-hug-hug-hug-hug…and another hug! ๐Ÿ™‚
