-Waking up at 8:00 a.m. to run outside and play with friends.

-Not caring what I looked like.

-Not worrying if he would like me.

-Getting dirty and coming home and taking a bubble bath.

-When swearing was such a bad thing.

-When there wasn't such a thing as a rumor.

-When getting in trouble at school was only because you wouldn't share your crayons.

-When my sister was my bestfriend.

-When we didn't spend five hours a day on the internet.

-When the only reason a girl ever cried was when she got hurt or someone died.

-When not having a mom around didnt hurt soo much.

-When the only music we listened to was on Disney.

-When our dad would plan who we hung out with.

-When we did whatever we wanted without being judged.

-When we had nap time at school.

-When having a boyfriend just meant holding hands and sharing snacks.

-When everyone believed in Santa.

-When life was easier.

WHAT DO YOU MISS? Very Happy Wanna share?

-List form please! Smile Very Happy Smile Very Happy

@George,
I think Gracie means cute things, nothing traumatic. That would be like me saying, "I miss continence."

@George,
No problem. After awhile, you kind of forget just what it is you miss, and kind of sit around regretting things in general.

Speaking of traumatic:

Quote:
LOS ANGELES—According to a study released Wednesday by the California Pain Medicine Center, subjects suffering from male- pattern baldness were found to experience a level of physical pain at least seven times more intense than that experienced by women during childbirth. "Clinical studies show that as hair gradually separates from the scalp, men experience intensifying waves of all-consuming pain equivalent to having their insides ripped out through the thousands of tiny follicles on their head," said Vincent Kwan, who led the all-male research team that carried out the study. "While strong uterine contractions and tearing of the vaginal walls undoubtedly cause a degree of discomfort among women in labor, balding men would give anything to experience those sensations instead of lying awake and suffering all night as their hair thins." Kwan stated that men's remarkable ability to endure years of excruciating agony without the aid of epidurals or other powerful analgesics was a testament to the sex's unrivaled tolerance for pain.

@sozobe,
Well, I trust good, solid research, but The Onion forgot to interview me. I've got a pretty good tolerance for both pain and (of necessity), hair loss.

@George,
Gracie, you are in one of those crossings where next year nothing will be the same. At 13 you are still a child, but not hardly. You are becoming adult, but not hardly. At 13 some of my friends looked even sexy while me, and others, were still "playing."

I remember clearly. This little friend and I would sneak down to this pond adjacent to the huge water tank (I am in the children's home, remember?). We found an old garage door, hauled it into the water where we'd float around, pretend we were Robin Caruso in some big adventure, watch the dog swim round 'n round chasing a duck.

Many years later, working an 8-hour day was cruel. It took a few years to get used to "no summer vacation." No, just work every day.

Oh, sorry, no lists coming. Should I make a list there wouldn't be much. I don't miss anything, but memories are precious beyong measure.
So, gracie, live an adventure filled life and you won't miss a thing some day.

@ossobuco,
I miss my son - who has been working at a camp in the US for 10 weeks- but I will see him again tomorrow. I can't wait to see my sweet, gentle Joe-Joe.

@GracieGirl,
I miss my best friend Michelle in California. Tomorrow she flies in and I got her a room at the bed and breakfast place I stayed at when I first moved here, had too because Marco and Antonio are moving in tomorrow!

I forgot to tell her it was clothing optional. Oh well she has a sense of humor.

I miss the mobility I enjoyed as a young man. It was easy to pick up and move to a different city any time I took a notion. Now, I can barely manage a trip to places like Dallas and Austin, on occasion.
