I really don’t know where to go with this post tonight….. my brain is all over the map. I am over ecstatic that my ‘baby’ and her new baby are now safely and happily back in their home and doing well…….. I am also torn with what I am feeling over the loss of my cousin who was raised in our home almost like a Daughter [albeit briefly] is no longer on this planet with us….. my brain and my heart for the first time in memory don’t know what to do…… tough place for an old fart that is used to always being in charge and always knowing what to do…… now……….don’t…………………..I said to my son EMMIT….. Godamnit EMMIT~!!
My Queen and I went out for a long scheduled Chef’s special last night and then got a last minute invite to spend this evening with dear friends at Blues tonight…… so our life on this gorgeous island moves on as [almost] required……. but I still remain at a loss. I spent the better part of the day taking care of the aggravating and mundane tasks of everyday life and getting ready to head back to the states this weekend. It has been over 2 years since I have been back, to anywhere with any since of normality and familiarity. I’m excited and dreading it all at the same time. That probably isn’t the right thing to say and it probably don’t sound ‘right’ – but that is just where I am right now…… confused. The Chef’s tasting was nice (although nothing remarkable) – – – – the evening this afternoon with Shawn and Cynthia and his 3 Daughters was much more enjoyable – for multiple reasons – including watching his 3 young beautiful Daughters throw bean bags, run, tumble, cartwheel and fuss among themselves……….. which brought back wonderful memories and made me smile on multiple occasions………
I wish I was going somewhere specific with this….. but I just can’t……. I’m in a fog I haven’t been in, in quite some time. I’m sure I will come out of it by the time we land in the arm pit of the Mid-West (Evansville)……. having a lot of time to sort things out while zipping through the skies at 350 mph……. Lots of running to do tomorrow for final prep for our flight back to the land of plenty……. but until I get my head on straight….. I’m leaving it here… and some pix from the last day or so………..
