missing them

This is my Mother (Terri). She is more than a best friend, kind of like a Frister (a friend that is more like a sister) so, I guess that makes her a Frother. That sounds too much like brother, so I am going to call her a Fromma. (a Momma who is also a very close Friend). ~*~ Thus is the language we use in my family ~*~ So if you see us all together, you'll hear words that make no sense to you, but mean the world to us and we'll most likely be laughing. (Booch, Whammies, Boofa, to name a few)

We also make up songs for one another and sing them at random moments. They are sung with special, made up, high pitched voices (also the voices we use when talking to our animals, or reading our pets minds and speaking out loud for them) and once a song has been made up about you, you're stuck with it for life. This musical performance is usually accompanied with loads of laughter, therefore confusing the audience and adding to their opinion, that we are all crazy, or drunk...or both. Don't be seen with us in public, unless you don't mind looking like you've just come from a pub and had a pint or two... (or 3 or 4 ;)

Why am I telling you this? Well, it's been a tough year for everyone in my family. My parents and sisters, as well as myself, have each been through our own hell and it has caused us to be apart from one another and kept us from all being in the same place at once. I've spent a good part of this morning being weepy about this. I miss my family, I miss being silly, laughing until you think you're going to pee...and singing the songs that represent a good part of who we are, that only we understand and think are hilarious.

Call it our quirky sense of humor...
Call it being really really silly...
Call it just plain insanity...

It relieves a lot of tension and is the glue that binds us all together, it makes us belong to one another. It is more than sharing the same parents and all living under the same roof for is priceless loyalty and enduring faithfulness towards one is love, loads and loads of love.

i miss my family...i miss (them)

We must be related. I come from a bunch of nuts, too. And I love it. What would I have done without all that laughter in my life?!

Oh, and my word verification looks like one of your inside family words: "fjakm".

This so makes me think of my gram and me...we have our own language too.

You know, I had a dream about this blog last night. I opened your blog with my morning coffee and there was the boutique, filled with beautiful items!

Can't wait for it to open :)

what a joy to have a family that laughs together (uncontrollably)! my family tends to be like this too. and mostly its contageous, so anyone who spends a fair amount of time in our company begins to become the same way. Lol.

These little silly things are really not silly at all, they are beautiful reminders of the bonds we share with those who we love. We can get pretty silly too around here too, and it feels good.

You have a wonderful family and a beautiful fromma.
