Two years ago I had a fun idea and arranged this photo shoot with my middle son, DIL and her three kids. It is still a Facebook classic, lol. They have so many friends between the two of them that they re-run it every year for laughs :) And we did win a local newspaper contest with it, though it didn’t make any of us rich :)
I have five grands, and the other two are in a different school district. THEIR back to school date has been pushed back to Sept. 4th, due to renovations at the high school.
Today the DIL captured that with her three looking sad in the middle and the other two that were still ‘free’ on the right and left of them.
So I saw three of them off on the bus and the other two and I walked dogs for awhile. It was a fine crisp and chilly morning too! I woke up at 5:30 to 55 degrees! What a nice break. That’s my kind of weather.
My youngest son is doing well ( thank you for all of the support ) getting back to work, staying clean, visiting his dog here and taking him for walks, looking for a new job and said that he’s laughed and cried more in the last few weeks than in years…..letting his true emotions through and being comfortable and even happy with them! I think he may be staying on the recovery road. He’s attending N/A meetings when he can/ has a sponsor, etc.
Life’s not without its constant pushbacks though. His car broke down today and he thinks it is the transmission and with a new job starting on Monday he was in despair. A friend can loan him an old car if he can buy a battery for it…everyone is pulling together :)
That’s it for now / just a quick blog update. I wish I had more time to visit around but I’ll catch up eventually :) Please have patience with me :)
