missing my girls

O.K. lets hope this works!

Here is a picture of us with Amber on the night she graduated and the rest of the pictures were taken down at the cliffs. In one of the pictures you can see my head as I am climbing up the side of the rock. Then in the next picture I am at the top.

Lets see. Nikki is in Ohio and Amber is on her way to Europe. Ambers first stop will be Rome.

Today I am going to just stay at home and clean up the house. I don't think I am even going to get dressed.

Well I found my scissors! I finally got that damn curtain made. I really like the way it turned out. I chose a Japanese pattern. I want to go get more material and make the rest of my curtains out of the same material. But it will have to wait. I can't believe how expensive material is getting.

Yesterday Amber and I spent a lot of time talking about her trip. I am so happy that she is going on this trip. Yes, I am still upset that I paid for most of it, but on the other hand I am glad that she is going and doing these things.

For my birthday I got a rose from Ryan, a starbucks gift card from Rusty, a cat tee kettle, and some green bags for my produce. I think the bags were actually my mom ways of laughing at me! LOL

I just got an e mail from another j lander. She had offered to take Amber out when she got to the UK. Thanks in advance for showing my daughter a good time!

Can I admit that I miss my daughter already. Can I admit that I wish I was with them, watching them explore this big new world. Do I sound like a big baby?

My day is calling me. Maybe if I keep busy I won't miss my daughters so much.

I am glad you found your sissors, I like Japanese print, so I bet it's pretty.
I don't think you sound like a baby, it is wonderful to see new places and it is such a wonderful thing to watch our kids see and feel new things. Heck I wish I was with them.

Oh, I went through awful pangs of jealousy when my youngest 2 were teenagers.  I wanted to do all the things they were doing.  I guess it was the "empty nest" feelings starting to settle in.  I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that has had these feelings.

I love the photos.  That country is so beautiful.  I am sure you are going to miss the girls because you been so involved in their lives when they were home getting them through these school years.  I sort of missed my kids for years until I got used to them being gone. I will miss them too, your stories about them, but I know you are very creative and will soon find something to do that is interesting!  Gerry

It is so pretty where you are.  I'm kinda mad too that you paid for most of her trip.  I'm glad you had a nice birthday.  Glad you got nice BD gifts.  It's great that the scissors turned up.  The curtains sound so pretty.  I hope you enjoy the cat tea pot.  Some pictures maybe when you have time? LOL

Loved those pics above.
