Alex is gone again...

One of my little puppies is gone for three days...
Alex is in Catalina on a Science trip...
No, this isn't his first time away from home, he's been gone for a week twice before
for Outdoor Education trips in Elementary school.
But the older they get, the more I worry.
Boys are naturally risk takers... and they think it is SOOOO COOL to do things that will
produce a gaffe or a gasp from their friends...
Next year he'll be going to NYC, D.C. and Williamsburg, VA for a Govt. trip.
In addition to exhorbitant tuition, we also get to pay for these trips.
Such fun.
He's been to NYC a few times, so he'll have fun being tour guide I'm sure...
I am NOT the same when one or all of my boys are away from home!
I hate it!
What am I gonna do when they all finish college and move out for good?
I just read, or saw on Oprah maybe... where in India, when one gets married, they all live with each other until death... mom, dad, kids, grandparents...
Sooo... maybe after college, I'll sell everything and move us all to India... or Italy... where the man's family builds and houses the son and his entire family in their own house either next door or above the parents house...
Again... heaven.
I sure hope my boys marry understanding women.
I can't just not talk to my kids for days on end, or not see them all the time.
I need to save up a ton of money so I can bribe, yes, BRIBE my future daughters in law to "see things my way"... if you know what I mean.
That is such a Mafiosa way to be... he...he..he..
My hearing is coming back... I'm at about 80% now.
The ear drops really help.
Oh!!! and I've lost 37 lbs so far!!!
Alex... come home soon... I feel like only 2/3 of myself...


  1. HOw do your boys feel about this plan...just curious.

  2. Congrats on your weight loss. The marriage plan sounds a tad strange. I'm not sure I'd want so many people in my house, trying to race for the bathroom.

  3. Bribing does work. Start saving your money honey!

  4. I'm here getting caught up on a week's worth of blog reading, now that I can actually sit up on the couch without my head exploding!!!! Happy Saturday!

  5. First of all, congrats on the weight loss! Good for you!

    I'm so with you on the whole "I never want my baby to leave me" thing. tee hee! Is it just a Dago thing? I don't know, but that's exactly how I feel, too. Except that I can't imagine mine married, since there will never be anyone good enough for him!! ;-)
