Something I Miss
I miss my family. ...and having a family.
Those probably sound related, but they're not.
I miss my family, as in my mom and brother and the family I grew up with. We used to be close, sitting up at night watching movies, smoking cigarettes (I quit this about 6 years ago and don't miss those at all!), eating junk food and shooting the sh*t. I had my mom to bounce ideas off of and to visit with when I needed encouragement during life's struggles. -- Then I moved away. Only an hour and a half away but when everyone has busy families and full-time jobs an hour and a half may as well be across the damn country.  I don't see them nearly enough anymore.
I also miss having a family, as in the sense of family I had before my divorce, the type of family with unspoken understandings because they were a part of creating all of the good, bad, and ugly that makes you you. Judging by all the memes and Facebook posts I read making blended families seem so easy and natural, I must be doing something wrong because it's not the same. I mean, it's not all bad ...
but it's not the same. 
I miss the unity, companionship, and familiarity of my 'first' family.
I'm going to go far less serious here. I just don't have it in me to dig deep on this one.  I miss playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare online on the Playstation 3.  I also miss playing World of Warcraft.  I had friends on both of those games. I was pretty good at COD4 and I really liked playing WoW. And I miss them both. It's not about time or equipment. I literally am not able to get the internet that I need to play these games. Therefore I do not need the consoles or computers that are required to play them. And that sucks.
