Time to say Good Bye after 26 years...

Well, it's time!  I remember back when we first met... I had just gotten my drivers license and was out lookin' cool!!!  There you were... the COOLEST kid on the block and you were hangin' out with me.  We have been together for 26 years now. Can you believe it?  You have been there with me through the Army days, being deployed to Saudi Arabia.  When I was left alone with a baby, you were there.  LONG drives, you were there.  You have been my encourager, the one to be the reward for completing a chore.  You helped me have patience when creating a project, yes, it has to sit and dry, so we would go hang out for awhile.  I have been SO angry and you helped me calm down.  I have eaten myself into sickness when that food was SO darn good I couldn't stop, you helped settle my tummy.  You have given me SO many laughs on those fun and crazy drunken nights out when you would be upside down and turned the wrong way.  LOL

I must say, I have tried to not want you around before, and have always come running back to you, WHY?  I just wasn't ready to face "life" on my own.  You have always been there and I could always justify "needing" you around.  Well, today that ends.  I have decided that My Life needs to be controlled by ME, NOT YOU.... I know it will sound odd to many, but I DO Thank You for helping me through so many situations that I have come up against... the good, the bad and the ugly, but ... today we are parting ways. 

SO, this is it my faithful friend....




GOOD BYE!!!!! I will NOT miss you... I'm READY FOR THIS!!!!!
