My son-in-law, Benjamin, Danielle's husband, Delilah's daddy, will be home on Thursday. The next few weeks are a whirlwind of movers and bachelor/bachelorette parties, a wedding, and then the three of them leave on the 15th of March. To Germany. I can't drive to Germany.
There are other things going on in my life, of course. I've been stitching and stuffing, and thinking and pondering, the two kinda go stitch by stitch. My Young Son is taking a trip, my sweetheart and I have to make a trip to the airport and find a wedding somewhere downtown, in the dark...The Pro-Shop is making progress, thanks to some dedicated members...but, still...
To be completely truthful, I can't quite pinpoint how I feel. I'm ready for them to start their next chapter, far, far away, and I know I'm gonna miss them like crazy. There's another aspect, too. Since Sweetheart and I have been together, we've had 2 kids. Now, one is going far, far away, and one is clinging to the nest with all his might. Sweetheart is a bachelor. He has never been married, no kids of his own. We live in the house that his parents had built in 1973. I want to broaden his horizons...I want to decide on a Sunday night that we are leaving to go see the Grand Canyon on Tuesday. I want to be free to go have some fun! I'm still 18 in my head, even though my body disagrees.
Thanks for reading my rambling post...trying to get all the thoughts in my head in one place is not an easy feat. Trust me, there's more.

Y'all, Play Nice! xxoo
