Having a hard time

It is getting close to the end of summer next change in my life will be our youngest daughter going off to college.  I know she is scared but she will not admit it and myself I am terrified.  Her main worry is leaving me home alone.  I keep telling her I will be fine, she needs to be able to grow as a adult because one day I will be gone too.  Truth is I do not know how I am going to handle being home alone, I went from living at home with my parents and 2 younger sisters to being Mike's…

Mike I want to tell you

Mike I just want to tell you that 

I miss having you sitting next to me on the couch controlling the remote

I miss you calling me when you get home because you got home and I was not their

I miss having to be the dd when we got out

I miss hearing you snore 

I miss hearing your phone ring and ring and ring because you don;t want to talk but you wont shut your phone off

I miss your dirty clothes on the floor a foot away from the clothes hamper
