>It happens in the blink of an eye…

>One day you are young, you have small children running around and you feel like you will never leave this time in your life.  Then the next thing you know your baby is turning 17.  Your oldest is old enough to drink and your middle daughter gets a ring from her boyfriend for Christmas….

Yes, I’m that old. lol.  Today my baby is 17 years old.  He is my only boy and my love.  Up until just a couple years ago he’d even come sit on my lap and watch tv…he sometimes still does it if I’m in his chair but only because he know’s he is 7 inches taller than me and that bony butt hurts!!!

It is so amazing to see your children grow to become young adults.  I am so thankful that they are all still at home too.  Going to college, working or not.  I understand the need to work and make money, but I also understand the need to focus on school so I can go either way with having a job and going to school.  It’s tough though.

But what is really tough is seeing this…seeing them grow and know that they are going to leave.

>Day two of five without hubby!

>I would love to think I am one of those independent women who can do anything on her own.  Someone who doesn’t need anyone to make her life complete…who am I kidding? My husband has been my inspiration, support, best friend and cuddle buddy for almost 23 years and he is gone right now.

I put him on an airplane bound for Philly on Sunday morning.  His was one of the last planes to land in that wonderful blizzard.  I was stressing all day waiting for his call!  Many prayers were said, many praises of thanks too.  He is now in Delaware with the OC Girls Varsity basketball team for a tournament.  Nothing can stop those people on the east coast! Nothing!  The tournament continued on!  They played at 6pm last night and won! YEAH!

They don’t play today so they are touring Philadelphia, taking in some sights.  I’m excited for all the girls and the coaches! It’s such a wonderful adventure for them.  I am however sad and depressed that I am trying (without much success) to sleep alone.  It has become increasingly difficult to focus at work.  Heck, I’m not even eating much.  What does that say about me?  I don’t want to delve into that box of worms. 🙂

So, I’ll just say that I miss my hubby and can’t wait to see him at the end of the week.
