LJ enjoyed his last week in NC. He stayed here and visited with us some. Colin brought his niece and nephews swimming one afternoon. They took the cats to the vet and they rescued a puppy out of the road. I even cooked for the boy! All this was occurring while school was going nuts around me but I enjoyed the time we had together. I was proud of the tribute he put on facebook the day that when he heard that Rue McClanahan had died. He said “Blanche Devereaux died today. Please take a moment to sleep with a sailor.”
We all took him to the airport. As we pulled in he commented that someone better cry because then he would know he was loved. He wasn’t disappointed. But I just cried a little. I hugged him and told him to be careful around all those Yankees. I watched him walk into the terminal, it reminded me of watching him walk through the school doors into kindergarten. The grin, the totally joy, that I could see on his face will always be with me. Okay I might have seen it through tears but I did see it and it made me feel good.
And now what do you think of a husband who totally and completely forgets his 27 wedding anniversary?? This man is supposed to love me and he can’t remember our anniversary? I suppose I would be upset except for the fact that I completely forgot too. LOL! I’ve often said that if I had know I was going to be a teacher I would never have gotten married in early June. So between school and getting LJ off the date just got away from us. But I did get an email from Nick just before he went to bed inviting me to wake him when I got to bed. That sounds interesting – I think I’ll post this and head that way!!
