I am fortunate that both my boys are visiting me for a few days. I miss these kids so much. The only thing that would make it better is if my daughter could be here too. However, she is floating on a ship in the deep blue sea. With some luck, I may be able to get them all home for Christmas.
I am trying to jam so much into these few days. I have taken half days for Mon-Wed, and we are trying to visit everyone that we can in such a short amount of time. On top of that, I am in college and trying to get three large papers written, and I have come to the conclusion that there just isn’t enough time in the day. I plan to soak up these last few hours I have with them because it will have to last the next four months.
When I had children at home, I would think about how there wasn’t enough time in the day with cooking, cleaning, laundry, and homework. I never believed in all my life that all three of my babies would be on the east coast and I would be on the west coast. What I would give to have them back home with me again.
An empty nest is not fun.
