Moving day was uneventful and everything went smooth.
I helped Mocha organize the kitchen and the bedrooms because this is how it looked when I got there:
While we did that, Venti and Mocha's Dad and Joe hung the TV on the wall while his 3 friends and Short watched:
His friends had to test out the guest room:
I didn't cry when I left the apartment the day he moved in.
I haven't cried since last week when I told Venti how much I was going to miss him...he hugged me and said, "Mom...its ok...I'm only 1 hr and 15 minutes away...plus we will come home lots!"
Yesterday Joe and I cleaned out his room. We boxed up the things that he left and stored them for him. I was actually excited to get my office back as we have a 4 bedroom house so his room was the office.
So I've come a long way since last week. I don't get all chocked up when I think about it. He called today to find out how I make these certain kind of potatoes which made me feel good. They are coming home again this weekend too!
So life does go on...I've found out that its not the end of our immediate family...its just a different chapter.
Yeay! Hooray for mummy who is moving on! :D So happy for you! :DReplyDelete
I bet he is missing you and his life of luxury dreadfully right now. But the time comes when those chicks wings are ready for them to fly away on, so well done you for being so brave and letting your first one soar away to his new life. If I am to do half as well as you I think I need to start preparing right now, even if my daughter is only three, because I already dread it so much!ReplyDelete
Awww...mama! I'm glad they are getting settled in, and you are feeling a bit better about cutting the apron strings...just a little. LOL It's so hard. Our oldest has been back with us for almost 3 years now, and I know I will be the same way when they move this summer. :(ReplyDelete
Love the guys testing out the guest room. LOL Looks like a really nice place!
Thats a really cute Apartment!! Glad your adjusting ;)ReplyDelete
I can SO relate to your post, Java. I had the last one move out December.ReplyDelete
Now I'm TERRIFIED they'll want to move back in! GULP!
Woohoo Java! Way to go! I can't wait to see pics of your "new" office all set up and decorated exactly the way you want it. :)ReplyDelete
And thanks for the reminder about the Over 40 bloggers. I figured out how to add the button in my sidebar so count me in!
I would have been a mess! When my oldest son decided to go live with his dad I think I cried for a month straight! (I really know this isn't the same situation though.) At least they're only an hour away and not cross country and you get your office back! Yay!!!ReplyDelete
I'm proud of you Java! You are doing so good! Good girl! You'll see and appreciate the perks of having a child out of the house more so as time goes on! And before you know it, there will be grandbabies (5-10 years? lol) to play with, and that makes up for just about everything. :)ReplyDelete
Hi Java! I was upset when my son moved out in 2005. We have to let them go. Have a great day!ReplyDelete
This post makes me so happy for you. You've come a long way baby!ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, we are going through so much of the same things right now! Our baby graduates highshcool tomorrow! You are right... different chapter. Tomorrow at 7:00 when graduation starts will you remind me! ( :ReplyDelete
also, I need you to help me put the over 40 thing on my blog.
Have a pretty night,
it's hard when our children grow up and move. roseReplyDelete
Yay You! So proud of you. I knew you would make it & now you will start to really enjoy the change, you'll see!ReplyDelete
