Time does fly by so quickly, that it will make your head spin. Enjoy every moment with them and relish the evenings helping them with homework, projects and school activities. We were envolved in their school and that was really important to them.
My daughter is now in her 2nd year of college and my son is in the Air National Guard. He had left home a month ago (moved out, he was not very happy) and now, thank god, he is in the cusp of coming back home again. We have been talking (my wife and I) with him and he has agreed to come back home next week (I'm praying that he does). Until he does, I will still feel the emptyness in my heart, that I have had for the past month.
You don't realize sometimes, just how much you need them, as much as they need you, until their gone... enjoy every moment and hold it close to your heart. Because before you know it, the time has past by, and they will have left the nest~

I have had sooo much going on im my life, one issue after another, that I was not in the heart to share this additional thing with everyone.
The other week, we were about 20 minutes away from leaving the house to move our daughter into her college dorm, and I went downstairs to the basement to check the back door, when I discovered that my daughters bunny was not acting right. I picked her up and wrapped her in a blanket and called my wife and daughter and we took her to the vets. While we were there at the vets, she had a she had died while they were working on her, she was 7 years old and her name was "Bunny B" or Mrs B or just B, as we called her.
She was a dwarf bunny and she was 7 years is an old age for that type of rabbit. Vicki had gotten her when she was in middle school 6 or 7th grade and B was so personable, she loved chips, cereal, she would lay on the couch with us and watch tv, she loved to have her head rubbed and was also litter box trained.
Vicki was so upset, crying, which got me all upset, what timing, the day of her leaving home. B is now buried under a young oak tree that I planted in the yard.
I had a dream it was snowing! It was one of those typical Texas snows. In my dream it was so hot we were melting, went to sleep then woke up to freezing weather and snow flurries. (We have those type of drastic weather changes a lot). I was so excited that I was rushing to my computer to come on here and post about it. Then I woke up. Darnit! As soon as I turn on the weather this morning our weather guy says it will be 100 degrees. Blah!
I would love to hang out here and catch up but I have to run. I will try to be back later.
Have a Merry Day everyone!
Great dream!!! Hope it cools down for you soon!!!!
Today is Jacob's 16th birthday! And he's very proud of himself LOL. We're having a family get-together tonight at home, then a buddy of his is spending the night tomorrow night. Well, the boys are older now, so his buddy is "crashing at Jacob's place" Friday night, not "spending the night with Jacob." I expect to hear guitars till 3 in the morning.
I took Nancy to Jim's shop to see the latest Camaro, and she was actually impressed. Jim and I plan to start sanding the body this weekend, preparing for a primer-coat.
I hope y'all have a great day!
Happy Birthday to Jacob!!!!! Hope he has fun hanging out with his friend.
