My mom and dad called a family meeting last Sunday.
My mom made her famous lasagna with three meat sauce and extra provolone cheese.
My sister and I talked earlier in the week. Both of us were worried that our mom and dad were going to give us some really bad news. We were worried for the worst, like a divorce or a terminal illness. Neither one of us expected to hear what my parents actually said. They were going to sell the family house and move down south. My mom’s sister lives in Tampa, Florida and my mom and dad went to visit her a few months ago. Ever since they went to Tampa, Florida, they have been talking about the amazing weather. My Mom and Dad loved the sunshine and the warm, humid days. Honestly, it’s probably the thing I detest most about Florida. I’ve been to Tampa a few times to visit my aunt and I wasn’t particularly impressed. I don’t like walking around on a summer day feeling like my body is consistently wet. It is a terribly uncomfortable feeling that I don’t enjoy. I was really shocked and taken by surprise when my mom and dad mentioned Moving to Tampa. My sister and I threw a temper tantrum and left the house before they could finish talking. We went back a couple of days later to apologize, but both of us were really surprised when we heard the news. We never expected our parents to move all the way to Tampa, Florida and leave us behind.
