Crap, Crap, and Double Crap


I had a bit of a crap Mother's Day. My oldest daughter is in the process of moving out. And although I am very happy for her, and her new found independence, I am wallowing in my own pity. Her new place is really beautiful; backed up against the woods, very nice. And only 1 mile away. But I am not lulled into any comfort by the short distance, I will truly miss living with her and my grand daughter. Crap, crap, crap.
Double crap, because I had to work today. Ugh. But if I had to witness the moving out of her furniture, I would have been a sobbing mess.
After coming home from work, Cute Hubby and I picked up some Chinese food and some Heineken. That was o.k. Then I set to work on organizing the bits and bobs left behind from the flurry of moving. Crap.

I'm so sorry! Moving sucks!! I haven't done it in over 10 years and I'm not looking forward to it. I had a hard time with our son driving and working. Him moving out will crush me, I'm sure!!

I'm sorry you had to work and your daughter had to spread her wings. I'm hoping that you'll see more of her now!!

Hugs!!

ouch. ouch ouch OUCH. and moving on mother's day, too?!?!? so painful. i hope you are going to be ok. at least you know they are so close by -- that has to help.

i remember when i moved away to college. my mom and little sister helped me pack up my car and then they followed me from nor cal to so cal. when it was time for them to drive away we could not stop bawling. i didn't know a single soul in los angeles, and i felt like a fish out of water, and they had to go home while i stayed in a flea bag hotel waiting for my dorm room to be ready to move in to. it was so sad, and normally my family does not shed tears around each other like we did that day.

you hang in there. and i bet you will be feeling better and more reassured when you still see them all the time. :)

Ow.

I'm already dreading when my daughter goes away to college. I know it's coming sooner than even I realize.

That's a tough Mother's Day --hang in there!

Wow, it's always quite hard to let them go, right? Well, I'm planning to leave the country and I'm an only child, i'll bear that in mind for my mum...
Happy week!

That would have been a very hard Mother's day. I'm not sure how my Mom felt when I moved out, but then I didn't have child and I had just graduated high school & my dad and I were not getting along. She waited over a year to tell her Mom what I did. I kind of feel bad now that I put her in that kind of fix with her mother. Of course, now..what did we do with our fortune cookies..instead of finish saying them with ...in bed..my Dad said with Jory (my boyfriend's namen) he has a bit of a man crush on him.

Hey, we had Chinese too and it wasn't as good as we'd hoped even if the place was half empty. I felt rushed because I was suppose to go with my boyfriend aka fiancee (I suppose who hasn't given me a ring btw)..and well, how long has it been..hmm..just to find out I could have spent more time with my family since we didn't go to see his Mom. They have not been getting a long lately.

Mother's day its hard to get it to work, sometimes, for all those involved.

Oh oh oh oh...sorry you feel this way. But hey, only 1 mile??? That´s okay, right? Some kids are moving out as far as 20 states away!!

But you know what? Now that you are not going to live with your grand daughter anymore, she is going to miss you a lot as well; which is a very good thing. Everytime you see each other again it will be a party.
