Wasn't Prepared for THIS!

Give me just a second . . .
My oldest son told me that he got a job in
Washington, YESTERDAY.
Now for the part I wasn't
prepared for . . .
He leaves TODAY!!!
I'm guessing I won't be sleeping tonight so
I might be posting like a CrAzY Woman
so that I don't just sit here bawling like a baby!
I'm not ready for my buddies to grow up!
I need more tissues!!!

I wish I could bring you some tissues, but here's a {{{{{hug}}}}} instead!
And to think I was going to bug you about "mix meals" and such...
Enjoy your time with your son and I for one will be looking forward to your posts, as always!!!!

Oh, bless your heart! I can't imagine how emotional a time you must be having. No warning at all! You hang in there and do what you need to do for yourself. We'll all be here when you get back!

Thank you for all your hard work and for sharing with everyone! You are so kind!
I can't imagaine what a shock with your son leaving so quickly! Just know you have done a great job in raising him! (I know from reading your amazing blog!) Keep a smile :D - that's what he will want to remember! Good Luck and {{{HUGS}}}

Thank You both soooo much! It was a hard day for sure. Not only did I send my son to Washington, but our pig pig Schnibbley died, he's the family ginnie pig, and I ended up at the Instacare with a serious allergy attack! What a day!!! It ended ok with a sweet phone call from my Chris and a long prayer!
Thank you again for being sooo thoughtful!

Trish, I didn't know you were having a heck of a day also yesterday! Sorry, for asking you about the rennet tables at such a time. I learned from this though that I may not be the only one having a crisis at the moment I am having a crisis. Thanks for the time you took to find what I needed. I really appreciate it. I found some rennet,in the class we talked about using powdered milk in many ways, sampled different brands, made cottage cheese, everyone got their own little ball of curds and made mozarella cheese for themself and we learned how to make yogurt also. So it turned out successful, thanks to your help!!! It is so hard to have your first child leave. It is a shock, but at least you can call and talk when every you want. Think of this as "preparedness" for the mission when he is really gone for two years! Thanks again Trish!! You really are a blessing to many!
