Minus a Son

Sunday I did one of the hardest things that I have ever done. I left Huba in Montana. Now it is only for 34 days (31 left after today). I have them marked on my calendar. My mother asked if he could stay for a month now that she is retired. He’ll be attending a summer program that is very diverse in its activities. He’ll be doing everything from scholastics to gardening to swimming lessons to tennis to building a teepee. Plus hanging out with grandmother and three cousins. We couldn’t ask for a better way for him to spend his summer vacation~ but none the less we will spend it 9 hours apart. When I pulled out of my mother’s drive way I cried for the first 30 minutes of the trip. It was rough. Hubby had the teenager ride with me for those 30 minutes. Considering it was before noon when we were driving…. He slept. It was the thought that counts. Now I’ve talked to Huba a couple of time a day every day since I left him. And he’s doing wonderful having a blast and sure he misses me…. But it’s worth it. For him. I decided the best way to get through the next 30something days is to fill them up. Just get as busy as him. I’ve signed up for 3 classes (one was Monday night) at my LYS. It’s a “this is where I’m struggling at please help me with the pattern” type class. The group is full of fun women. I’m meeting a couple of girlfriends Wednesday night to stamp. And then of course there is Friday Night Knit Night every Friday night. That fills up 8 of the 30something nights. Hmmm. I think that I need to make some more plans. If any one local just wants to meet at a coffee/sandwich shop. Let me know.

This does sound hard, but it will be a growing experience for the entire family. He will really appreciate what a great mom he has when all is said and done too.

Stopping in to say HI. I know the pain though of leaving one behind lol. My twin sis regularly takes my 6 year old in the summers. It sucks for a bit but he has a total blast and it gives him time to be with aunt sas. I also read the posts about the stepson. Are you signed up to cafemom? there is a great group on there for step parents. It's been a huge help for me especially with my oldest step trying to be a teen....
