One Down, One To Go

Rooster left bright and early this morning, leaving one chicklet at home.

It was hard to see him go after he’d been home for about a month.

I don’t feel that I got to see him much, though, because I had to work two weeks after he got home, and by the time I got home each afternoon, he was out visiting with friends.  Then, after Christmas, he house/dog sat for one of his friends, which meant he only came home for a couple of hours each day.

At least he made some $$, but boy, was it hard only seeing him pop in every now and then.

Still, at least he was in the same zip code, and I could surprise him with lunch or Starbuck a time or two.

In less than nine hours, I’ll be bidding adieu to the other chicklet.

Sigh.

I hate this part of my children’s visits home, and I doubt that I will ever fully get used to it.

  1. No matter how much they’re home it is never enough. Mine left yesterday…I am better than I used to be, but every time the reality strikes me afresh-my kids are grown up and only home to visit. Hugs!

  2. It’s hard letting them grow up sometimes, isn’t it! My daughter leaves next Monday and will have been home for a month. But during that time she took a trip to Tennessee and a trip to Georgia and numerous sleepovers with friends. However, we’ve enjoyed the time we have had her with us. Love having her home, but I’m okay when she leaves because I know she is happy and is doing what she wants and that eases this mother’s heart. 🙂

    Take care.
