30 DAY CHALLENGE – DAY 28

28 SOMETHING THAT I MISS

I miss lots of things.

I miss my long hair.  Even though I’m 55 and I know I cant get away with it any more, I miss it.

I miss my first cat.   She died decades ago, but she was a real lap snuggler.  Never had a cat like her since.  Plus, she was my first.

I miss not having my own car.  We only have one between us, and while I don’t necessarily need my own car, I miss having one.

I miss my Dad.  Now some would think he should be at the top of my list.  But Dad and I had a complicated relationship.  We were too much alike and butted heads continually.  I don’t miss my sore head, but I do miss him.

I miss seeing my feet in the morning when I get up.  The old belly has taken pride of place in that “first thing I see” place.

I miss not being able to wear high heels.  After two ankle reconstructions on the same ankle, it’s just not happening.

I miss my boys.  They’re not dead or anything, they just moved out into their own homes.  I miss the smell (parents of boys will understand this one) even though it was bad enough to make me puke into my own mouth some days.  I miss the noise (which could break record levels when they were fighting).  I miss the family room being full of, well, family.  I miss their rowdy mates.  We see them all the time, several times a week in fact.  But it’s not the same as them actually living here.

That’s about it.    When this challenge is over, I’ll probably miss that too.
