|Hey! Do you like James Taylor?!|
Derek (who I lovingly blogged about yesterday) and I are losing our little brother. No, not that way....he's living out my lifelong dream and high-tailing it back to the midwest. He and his lovely wife, Sierra, are leaving us in just a few weeks. I'm happy, sad and jealous all at the same time: happy for them, sad for us, jealous for...well, I guess that's just my nature. What can I say...I miss home?!
One thing is fo sho....he will be missed. A LOT. Having him here has made family parties seem more like family parties. We will still love getting together with Derek and Jessica, but when it comes to my family I am a firm believer in the old phrase "the more the merrier."
I should, however, take a minute to congratulate Sierra on her ridiculously hard accomplishment of graduating Pharmaceutical School. Now all letters to Johnny and Sierra will correctly be addressed
"Dr. and Mr. John so-and-so Jr."
Sadly, most mailmen will assume that Johnny is in a same-sex relationship. Okay, not sadly...I kind of like the humor behind that. Let the mailmen talk!
BACK TO BUSINESS - Congrats Sierra, you have worked SO hard. Thanks for choosing a college that allowed us to have our baby brother back for a couple of years. We love you both and are going to miss all of the sax-a-ma-phone references. "He doesn't like George Michael!"
Love you, bro and Sierra!
Best of luck with your new adventure...we'll be joining you soon!!!
BDEM: I've been working on this post for over two hours because I keep getting distracted with old photos and videos. Sometimes a nice trip down memory lane is good for the soul!
