Early morning start

It was only 5.15am when he shook me awake. I had insisted that he say goodbye before he went, I wanted to be awake when he left. It isn't that I am worried, I believe they will be safe and have a brilliant time. He will return with lots of tales to tell. It isn't that it would be the first time he has gone away. He has been going away without his mum for the last 10 years, first on tours with his football club then later with his band. But this time it is different, he will be in USA for 28 days just him and 2 mates. Although I have seen photos of them and their names have been mentioned many times over recent years I don't actually know either of them . When he returns he will only be here for a week before hes off again on his next big adventure. This time it will be 3 years of University. I know he will only be about 12 miles away but he won't be living at home, he will be back for visits but I don't expect them to be either frequent or long. So apart from that one week in September I feel that my blue eyed boy has left home. He has suddenly grown up, by Christmas I expect he will have changed a great deal.


Today I am not at work, I was supposed to be having a day out with Plumber, but at 7am this morning he told me that he can't make it. So I have spent my morning tracking the status of DC's flight to San Francisco, they became airborn at 11.44 not bad for an 11.30am flight. I have also been studying their very detailed schedule for the next 28 days. among other places they will be visiting San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Grand Canyon, Denver, Hot Springs, Chicago and Niagara Falls finally ending their trip in New York City. He has promised me that they won't do anything silly that will get them into trouble during their trip. This is where they will be staying for the next few nights.
I have had a couple of dates in the last few days which I will tell you about shortly. I was going to write about them now but I have to go out on family errands.

Looks like you'll be having an empty nest pretty soon, no?

They'll have so much fun! I wish I had an opprtunity to do something like that when I was younger.

Send Plumber over here. I'll whip his ass. Hope you're having a nice day anyway. x

Hi Lady in Red, I guess sometimes its tough to let go, and we tend to worry about everything.
But same time we forget we were young once.

Here's wishing you many moonlight nights in your social life.
Have fun and hold that smile. Never can tell who's falling in love with your smile.
Have a nice day, Lee.

Right from the moment they're born, kids begin to seek their independence from their parents. As soon as they can walk, toddlers run away from their parents, but always run back again. I'm sure your lad is going to have a great time in the USA!

Oh, I'm sure they'll have a lovely time! And it's a good time with kiddos returning to school--less bodies to work around when going to very cool places! No worries--I'm sure they'll travel wisely and be filled with stories for the sharing.

Frankly--I enjoy the empty nest and the different relationship I have with the girl today.

*laughing* I'm suddenly a 'smart' woman again!!
