    surprising, isn't it?  you can love em to death but when they're around all the time all you want is to get rid of em just for a couple hours!

    i'm glad he's healing nicely and ready to go back to school. smile

    Hey Jane, see there is always an upside to everything. lol

    I'm glad to hear that he has returned to school and is doing well. See, everything is on it's way to returning to normal, or at least as much as normal can be. lol big_smile smile

        Funny how perspectives change as the kids get older.  My youngest  recently moved out and today I was thinking about how much I missed all the noise and the mess of her being home!  Today it is too quite here.

        On the other hand, I am getting a lot of writing done today!

    I don't have kids, but I do have a house guest who's finally leaving this Sunday after an eight month stay! You know what they say, "you're happy to see them, and you're happy to see 'em go!"
