Hmmmm.....

Feeling a little blue today.  Tomorrow Jason leaves for France.  At least it's only for about 2 weeks, then he'll be back until his Visa comes through.  Then off he goes again for a year.  Already missing him I guess.  This is the hard part.  Letting your children stretch their wings, and fly.  Even when they come back, it's hard to let them go again.  At least it is for me.  I have other children that may need to move, and take my grandchildren with them.  I mean what's that all about?  Not happy about that either.  At least I have my pal Tiah.  This picture reminds me of her, because that is exactly what she does, leans on me.  Sometimes she catches me off guard and I'm pretty sure one of these days I'll end up on my butt on the ground.
I don't mind, I know it's her way of giving me a hug.

The days here are cool and the nights cold.  We haven't had a hard freeze yet, but it's cold.
Been loving leaving my bedroom window open and letting in the cold air while I cuddle under the covers.

UGH! I know what you mean! I only have one child he is 7 hours away. I couldn't imagine a whole world away!
I too LOVE sleeping with the bedroom window open. Snuggle deep under the covers. :)

Ah, Susan. It's so hard to let our kids go, that's for sure. France seems so far, FR away but at least with the Internet he can still remain somewhat "close."

Our pets can be a real source of comfort as we go through times of transition.

I'm sure he's going to miss you every much as much as you miss him :)

And we haven't had a freeze here yet either but we have one on the way Saturday night!

I'm glad Tiah is a constant source of joy for you. Pets have a way of getting us through the tough times.

Susan, it is so hard to let our kiddo's go.
I'm so glad that you have Tiah to keep you company, and give you hugs :)

Enjoy this beautiful Fall.

It's hard letting those little birds fly the nest. But perhaps you will be able to go to France for a visit? That would be exciting!!
Hugs!

Hugs to you...I sure know how you feel about your son. My daughter lives on the west coast and with things the way they are here...about impossible to go there.
