You are making such wonderful memories for them. Be sure to take pictures and scrapbook it for the kids!

What are your plans for this evening? Well, we have a fun evening planned here and the kids are really excited. We're going to have a campfire and cook out on it. Then, we're going to camp out in the tent. The kids really loved it, when we did that last time, so we're going to do that again tonight. It will drop in the low 50's, but as long as we snuggle and cover up, we'll be fine!

I hope you all enjoy your evening! I will be back later to check in. Thinking of you all. God Bless and keep smiling!

I do take lots of pictures and spend lots of time with them, but I can't say I have a lot of extra time to scrapbook. Maybe someday. I would love to!

Good night to all of you. Enjoy the rest of your evening.
My prayers are on the way, Sugar.

We are going to the Elks Lodge in a bit for some liquid refreshments and hors d'oeuvres. Not sure when we will return, so I will wish everyone a good evening with this song.

Morning folks! In the past here I've tried very hard to be here and be apart of the conversation but lately, I've just haven't felt much like being very chatty. Actually, I've been pretty sad and depressed for the past few weeks and It's really tearing me apart on the inside and my family on the outside.

My son (20) moved out the other week against my wifes and my wishes, to move in with his girlfriend of 6 months (21/22). It didn't go over very well and I am really struggling with this. I have always raised my kids to be close to us and to stay with us for a long while, untill they were stable in life. He's not, he gets 10 cents in his pocket and he wants to spend it...

His girlfriend is a spoiled little daddys girl (that my wife, my in-laws and I, do not like at all) and on top of it, her daddy buys her everthing she wants (he's a retired Lawyer and had his own law firm) and right now my son is living there at her townhouse for free, on his dime, sponging off of him and I'm peeved, beyond all means about this whole thing.

I love him still, I am upset at him, I want him back home, I loathe his girlfriend, but yet I'm not supposed to push him further away by lashing out for his actions....My wife keeps telling me to back off and it will play itself out but I haven't. I just don't want to let go and I am starting to drive her and my daughter bonkers with this whole thing, because I want to also punish him for hurting and not listening to us. Am I wrong for feeling that way????

I don't know really how to process all of this and I need some advice; I feel like a part of me has been torn away... Thanks~
You and your family are in my prayers, xmastidings.
