U tagged ME!!!

Wellington Road tagged me for a meme

Here are the rules:
•Open your first photo folder.

•Scroll down to the 10th photo. Or, you know, just pick a photo. (lol she must know me well)

•Post that photo and story on your blog.

•Tag five (or more) friends to do the same.

Okay so I will play along, YOU guys know I have pictures, cause I am not a writer I am a picture poster. My picture is of sweet baby girl Ella. She is my great niece and I miss her and the rest of my babies so much. They use to all be just around the corner from me. Long Stories LOL.. Ella's family consist of her, 2 brothers 5 and 3 she is almost 2 and mom & dad (dad is my nephew by my sister). They live here about 10 miles from me I spent just about everyday with them. Then Katrina hit..blew everything away and dad's job. They tried to hang on but you can't without a job. So, they got a job offer in Destin, Florida, not a problem I use to live over there for almost 12 years I still have friends there and it's only 3 hours away.
Well, that lasted not quite a year then the economy collapsed along with yet another job for dad. It was terrible to hear of this yet again happening to a wonderful man. Katrina, did a job on us all around here and now he is losing yet another job. The stress he felt... I could feel... Very close family we are. So, finding another job has taking him to Virginia, which is wonderful he found a job but at the same time broke my heart, (still broken) because that is over 15 hours away. NOT do-able for dar all the time. Now her babies are going up waaaaay far away. The kids use to spend their summers with me at dardar camp. The camp has been empty this summer! Yes, these are posted pictures of camp dardar too, and the fun time we had.
Ya'll might remember my summer vacation pictures of me and the folks trekking up to Virginia. If you didn't see them.. Geaux see them now..LOL
(I miss my babies so much and NOW I am sad and crying...
thanks a lot wellington...thanks a frigging lot...lol xoxo)

NO, the story is not over yet... I have more babies that were here and causality of the economy my sister's daughter and her husband..remember their wedding pictures are posted...Geaux see them too. But, they were here about 6 miles from me..then the economy..I tell you people casino's are no place to consider your self having a job..because they get rid of people left and right they got all my family members and several friends. Any way my other 2 great nieces are now living about 3 hours away in Alabama. NOT as bad but still far away. Emoree, is 4 and Sophia was just born 2 weeks ago. Yes, pictures posted and I shouldn't have to keep telling you to geaux look at them. I only have 161 post..not that hard to catch up on...there pictures ..people !

So, there you go... I have 5 great nieces and nephews that I am not around anymore. It makes me extremely sad.

My brother has 2 adult kids 18 and 21 and they live 4 hours away...I miss them too!

Yes, I know their lives have changed too...but my world collasped when the babies left !

NOW for my tags...hahahahahahaha And for those who just want to play along..Com'on

You never know,maybe the economy will get better and they will be able to come back close to darsden camp(so cute)

I'm sure that they miss you just as much and want to get to see you more. So that's two forces in the Universe working in tandom together...could happen!
Your baby pouch is so adorable too. I miss my baby!

darsden said...

Peggy-I know and I do wish they could be a lil closer a day trip..but I can't make that in a day it was hard on me in 2 days! (baaaaad back) Thank you and I am sorry you miss you baby too!

otin said...

Right after you say that you are not a writer, you bring tears to my eyes! That is very sad and I feel terrible for your separation, but on a lighter note, the picture is adorable!!!

Michel said...

Dude. I seriously love your babies. They are sooo dang adorable! I'm sorry you're missing them. But just think how happy they will be to see their baby pics posted for the whole internet to see! Ha!

otin said...

My photo files are so screwed up, but I will play along, maybe tomorrow afternoon!

Phoenix said...

Ella is adorable!
Don't be sad and don't cry.. happy memories are worth a lifetime, and I'm sure your darlings miss you too.

Beth said...

Cute baby picture! So sorry you miss them so much. Can you go visit them?

darsden said...

otin-I will take that as a very high complement coming from you sir. Thank you she is a cutie. Great for playing along...whenever :-)

Michel-thank you very much... they already know they are posted every where I go..NOTHING they can do about it..that's how I roll LOL

Phoenix-thank you she is a mess too. I can't help it, they were the air I was breathing! Now I can't breath. Priceless memories of all those babies.

darsden said...

Beth-thank you very much. I went this summer but being how bad Rudey dog has turned (anxiety wise) I can't go anymore. I can't leave Rudey and I can't take her. So, unless they plan a trip it will be a while. At least till after the first of the year is what I hear.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Oh Dar. She is adorable. I'm sorry your family is not closer for you. Sometimes I hate the 3,000 miles of ocean and expensive plane ticket that keeps me from my family for too long at a time.

darsden said...

PHST-thank you and yes it could be a lot worse they could live where you do so I will stop complaining..NOT! I wouldn't be able to be that far I don't think! (goodgooglymoogly for pete's sakes I live in my mommies back yard LOL)
