This week

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!!

PK, congratulations, 27 years, that's quite something.
Enough to raise two wonderful people and firmly tie the bonds between you and Nick.
I hope that he gave a nice anniversary spanking and that the band played on, long enough.
Love and warm hugs,
Paul.

PK I know how you feel. When I send Michael off at the airport, I see that little boy struggling with all those 50 pound bags! But now they are both bright,competent young men!

Don't worry about the Yankees, worry about those New Yorkers! Well LJ is an actor, he can just pretend to be one himself!

Oh well even if you both had remembered the anniversary, you would have been too busy to celebrate. So you would have had to do it late. Pretend you didn't forget and do something special next weekend, and the next, and the next! Huggs!

Congratulations to you both on your Anniversary PK.

To see him so happy starting a new chapter of his life must have made you feel very proud. My love and best wishes to him.

PK: Had to be so touching to say goodbye to your son. Another chapter beginning in both of your lives.

And you can both still enjoy the anniversary and celebrate 27 years of togetherness.

And can't wait to hear what happened when you finished the post. Could he have planned an anniversary spanking?

Paul,
Had a wonderful anniversary encounter the band was great but we'll have to wait on the anniversary spanking until sometime Mollie is out of the house.

There have been time I felt the kids raised themselves but I'm proud of the part I had in their raising.

Theresa,
Yep, they are grown men and our babies all at the same time but our kids did turn out well. We'll keep celebrating for a while. We aren't limited to that one day.

Ronnie,
He called today talking about tomorrow, unpacking, getting a new bank, looking for work... how exciting!

FD,
Life keeps moving on and I am enjoying each new stage. More post about our evening later.

YAY for 27 years! That is AWESOME!

I know you were sad to see the boy go, but I know you are also very very proud of him!

HUGS!
