Adam keeps a running list of things we no longer and proclaims to miss them with all his heart on a weekly if not daily basis. With the new move taking place he's added something new to the list i.e. the old house. Below is what I believe to be the complete list:
The Red Couch: We got the red couch from a catalog return store about five or six years ago. It was supper comfortable but after years of eating, sleep, sitting, and stomping all over it; we had flat worn it out. At one point in it's run at our place the bottom broke out of it and had to be rigged using metal wire and a piece of plywood. We sat it at the end of the driveway one Saturday and it sold within hours.
The Orange Car: It was a Ford Edge that felt huge until Alex came along and very quickly it began to feel like a sardine can on wheels. Adam was the one that kept pushing us to sell it and was all for it until the day after it was gone. That was a year and a half ago and every time he gets in the van he mentions getting the Orange Car back.
The Old School: We pass the Hill every morning on the way to kindergarten and Alex is currently enrolled there. Every time we pass Adam sighs like an 85 year old man thinking about how pretty his young bride was the day he went off to the fight the Nazis.
Tonight's Chips Off The Ole Blockhead:
# I'm going to try and stay away from the Best Of's as much as possible but part of me loves reading those old stories that we would have forgotten if not for putting them on Charlie.
# "Mom can you come get Alex out of my room!! I can't handle him any more tonight"
# We pulled up to get a couple things from the old place last night and Alex started point and crying "No no no no no no no no no no no!!" For some moving on is easy I guess
