For my birthday, Chad took me to see my favorite... Rascal Flatts!!! We left Kosy early so we could go visit my bestie, Melissa in Tupelo. It was great to see her and Ms. Donna! We miss you two!!!! After our nice visit, we headed to Newks then to the CONCERT!!! Chris Young and Luke Bryan opened for them. They were awesome! Rascal Flatts were, as always, FANTASTIC!!! We were literally in the BancorpSouth Arena for 4 1/2 hours!!! They put on a show! Thank you, Chad. What an awesome birthday present!!!!!! I love you!
I miss Waco, Texas... as I said in Day 1- I am from Mexia, Texas.. Waco, like Jackson, was the closest place we could do some 'good' shopping. I grew up going to Waco practically every weekend and went to college there for a year. McLennan Community College. GO HIGHLANDERS! Every summer we say we are going to go to Waco just to visit our old 'stompin grounds'- as my mom says. Maybe we'll go this summer.
Day 18- Something you regret. That's an easy one. When my Pop was dying of cancer in summer of '04, there were a lot of things I wanted to tell him. Especially that last time I knew I was going to see him. He meant, well means, a lot to me. There is no other like him. He was my Pop. We had a special bond. I wanted to tell him how much I loved him, how much he meant to me, that I would miss him... but I didn't. I gave him a hug and a kiss and that was all. He told me to help take care of things. I said I would.
I know that he knew.. I didn't say it because I didn't want to remind of him the inevitable. Even though I know that's probably all he thought about. A week later he died. Even typing this post makes my heart sink. I am truly sorry for not saying what I wanted to say. Mainly for me. There's not a day that goes by that I don't miss him.
