Glee & My Momma

I was finally able to watch the season premiere of Gleeon Hulu this Friday. IT WAS WONDERFUL! Not only was it a great first episode, but it really brought back memories from when I had moved to Los Angeles. If you remember from my very first post, I moved to Los Angeles in March 2006. My momma drove out west with me. We left very early at 4:30am on March 4th. It took us 3 nights and 4 days to get to Los Angeles. We had a blast. We almost ran out of gas a few times, stopped in Vail, Colorado and went shopping. We of course stopped in Las Vegas for our last night. On March 7th we arrived in Los Angeles.

If you don't know me, let me tell you a little bit about the relationship I have with my momma. She is my best friend! We have a super great relationship. I can talk to my mom about pretty much anything. We also talk on the phone at least twice a day. Moving to the other side of the country was probably one of the hardest things I have ever done.

There are two scenes in the Glee premiere that tore at my heart strings. Kurt decided to go to New York afterall and his dad drove him to the airport. This was a hard scene for my mom, because Burt was saying goodbye to his son. My mom had to do that when she left Los Angeles to go home to Virginia. She was saying goodbye to her little girl. I still have the card that my mom gave me that last morning. I cried when I read it. Sometimes I pull it out to read again, just to remind myself how proud she is of me. The second scene that tugged at the heart strings, for me anyway, was at the end when Rachel called Kurt and confessed that New York City was a tough place and that she was feeling lost and lonely. I can't even begin to tell you how many times, over the 5 years I was there, I felt that way. Having my momma so far away was really tough!

Being back on the east coast I get to see my mom all the time! Well, at least once a month. It definitely beats twice a year!

Love you momma! ~ xoxo *erica*
