Feeling a void

So, I was trying to figure out why I have been so cranky the past couple days when it dawned on me -- I'm lonely. I am having serious "reunion withdrawl"...not only from my friends we met up with in Tennessee, but my family too. My aunt (Gee-Gee) and Uncle Jim and my cousin Michelle and her kids Reilly and Harrison were in town for a week for a family wedding and they left right before we went to Tennessee. So, I never fully dealt with my sadness that they were going back home (to Texas and Florida)...well, now I'm home again and I am just missin' everybody like crazy. We always have such an incredible time when we are together, so here are a few pics of what we did while they were here.
Us gals at the wedding: me, my sis, my mom, my cousin, and my aunt /My cousin, me, my sister, and my crazy cousin Willy (Willy had a lot to drink before the ceremony even began!)

The younger ladies: Reilly, Logan, and Lily






Kids (and my sis) playing by the river at the park/ Gee-Gee and Lily eating ice-cream




So, now me and my girl are just sittin' here thinkin' about all the good times we have had this summer and wishing we could do it all over again. We don't have anything on the calendar for this month, so it's just back to quiet again. (sniff.)

Great photos, I am so sorry your feeling lonely and a little down.
If we lived close I'd be picking up the phone and inviting you over for a coffee.
It looked like you and your family are very close, that is so special.
Hope your day improves(((hugs)).

The time after a wonderful get together is always a let down. Take the quiet time you have now and enjoy. I am sure you will be busy once againn. Hugs!

Great pics!

Cute photos! It's a downer when the fun is over. Put something on the calendar this month. Turn up the radio real loud and dance! That always makes me smile!

It's like coming home from a vacation. It keeps running through your mind.
Bend over, I'll slap reality back into to you :))

How true is that?!?! I'm feeling the same way - missing people to talk to!!! Look out Joe - I may talk his ear off!!!

OMG! I'm lonely too! My BFF left today to travel the four hours it takes to get to her city. I am beyond sad and feel the same void you do. The house is so quiet. Sigh...

I would be on a downer too after all those wonderul times with family and friends. Hang in there. You will have to think of a way to get everyone together again.

Great pix!! Losing all that activity sure would leave a void. Missing you too.

Looks like a great time (and Lily is cute as ever). I understand how you feel. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Awwww, hey, be sure to enjoy that quiet time too. There are some real treasures to be had in those times.

I love the photos. I can see why you miss the fun.

Tracey & Mike said...

Sorry you're lonely. Take some time to enjoy the quiet.

Beth and Shayna said...

Oh, it looks like you had a great time. I would feel lonely too after all that fun. But, now you can rest up for the rest of the summer!

Janet said...

I hate feeling lonely too. You may need a pal. Named chocolate. :-)

Ditto here girl....but we'll see you next month! ;)

Oh, I know that feeling -- I'm so sorry you're feeling that way. It used to make me so sad that so many friends and family moved (or I moved at other times), and everyone was so spread out. I really wish all my friends and family from all stages of life could live with in an hour of each other! Life is too short to be without them!

Big hugs to you, Nikki.

Dannye said...

the down time is the only bad thing to having a good time, that the good times have to come to an end...it's too unfair...but just know that the good times will once again begin..besides you and Lily Lin always have a ball!! How could you not with the sweetheart!!??!!

Gosh do I feel like you and I are connected. I have been feeling the same way since my dear, dear friend returned home. A sinking feeling. I miss her so much.

Gee Gee said...

I so understand how you are feeling. My younger sister was in town the weekend before the reunion, left on Thursday morning, came back Sunday of the reunion just to pick up her dog and then drove home. I have been very sad since she left and all of you went home also. I miss you all so much. I need to go see Gwen.
