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.
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...
To me... IT SOUNDS LIKE PURE HEAVEN!
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...
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...
