Okay, I just want to know where Mr. Sun has gone! It has been gloomy and miserable here for far too long and I am growing weary of it. And it is cold. Too cold for mid-May. I know, I know—soon I will be wishing for a break in the heat but it sure is difficult to get motivated to do much of worth when it is so dismal outside. And now it appears to be raining…..blah. I bought all these neat plants in Ohio last week and I have yet to put them out because I was afraid they would freeze. And they would have. Hopefully tomorrow I can work on that or else they will all be dead by the time I get home from my next trip!
Our “baby” will be a college graduate in just a few short days. Hard to believe that that day has finally come. I was just thinking about moving Aaron into his dorm 4 years ago—–the van was packed to the max and there was barely room for us. Thank goodness some great kids from one of the campus religious organizations were on hand to help us unload and carry stuff up—I am especially remembering a heavy tv……what a difference Aaron’s dorm experience was from my experience in Clark Hall. All I had was a hot pot and a popcorn maker as far as “appliances” …no microwaves or fridges, no fancy dancy computers and the one phone for the whole floor was waaaaayyyy down the hall!!!
I was also thinking how Aaron’s first home after graduation will be different than mine was!! He is moving into a really nice townhouse in a really nice area. I got married and after a month or so in a teeny furnished one bedroom apt in Winter Park, Florida, moved into a 3 bedroom ranch home (with zero furniture!) on base housing in Orlando!!! I had anoles and cockroaches (shudder) to contend with and he will have none of that!!! Our lives are certainly different at this juncture in life but it has all been grand. He is embarking on his new life and I am thrilled for him. And proud of him. Any of you moms out there can understand that. Graduation is Saturday and I hope I don’t cry….chances are —I will.
