Love to see you go, Hate to see you leave

Okay, so maybe that title isn't quite how the saying goes, but that's how I've been feeling lately.  On several occasions, people in my life have been doing new and exciting things that are taking them away from me.  I'm thrilled they're moving on to the next part of their life, but, damnit, I don't want them to go away.

The Man's best friend and his wife are moving a state away.  We're beyond happy for them with the new opportunity, but a state is a long way in the west (if we lived in one of those little states on the other coast, this wouldn't be so miserable).  While technically our friends will still be within one day's drive, we won't be getting together for game nights anymore.  The guys won't have guy nights.  It sucks for us, but it's really, really good for them to go.  So what can we say?  Best of luck, we'll miss you bunches, and move back soon.

Our parish priest is moving on to a bigger and better position.  The last one also did the same thing (and we miss him dearly).  Here's to hoping our current priest sticks around as he's very good--and funny.

And, on a less serious note for Deadliest Catch fans: Edgar?  I understand why you have to go, but I hate to see you leave.  Most upstanding guy on the Bering Sea.  The show won't be the same without you.  Who else is going to push Jake's buttons?  Who else can stick it to Sig when he gets nasty?  You will be missed.

Is it wrong to feel selfish for wanting the best for people yet still wanting them to be a real, physical part of your life?  Ugh, sometimes I hate being a grown-up.
