That’s what my life consist of at this point in time…
Well, today is the day. D Day. Bon voyage day. Was going to be exam day as well, but the dude at the studio misjudged his abilities – could not marry that to my needs. Dudes, what can I say. We seem to always disappoint one another 😉
So, I bought a dress for naught. Stressed for nothing. Got exited about thin air. Have to admit though, it makes for a much less strenuous day, not having to get all dolled up for the studio as well as wanting to cry because the kid is leaving my immediate surrounds! As it is, the last of the washing is on the line. The gift has been wrapped and placed on top of the pile that still has to be packed. 7.5 hours until fly-time. Ziplock packets at the ready to receive their bounty of shower gel and shampoo and other such liquids – don’t want the whole suitcase runny because the bottle burst or something stupid. He’s taking his Kenjitsu swords with – if they allow such weapons in Dubai. And his violin. He’s allowed 30 kg’s – that we have no real way of weighing….
My two beautiful boys. The main reason I wake up every day. The thing that kept me going all those years ago. The little boys that would leave me notes written on tissues with lipstick on my pillow. The little boys that would wrap their arms around me and tell me not to worry.
Now, they’re men. Busy with their own lives. And mom gets left behind – which is as it should be. Does not make it any easier.
Anyhow, the lamenting should stop shortly. Funny how quickly one gets used to even the worst situations. In a few months, it would be as if he was never a part of my life. At least he had a good send off last night with the buddies. I know my son is loved – there were about 40 people coming to say good bye to him. Not certain if it’s my doing, or just the Universe that’s blessed him with better people skills than I can boast about. Probably just a comfortable personality. Never a bad thing that.
Well, he’ll be home in a while. Then the packing and weighing will commence. Might take a few photo’s of that rigmarole!
Leaving you with an old Joe Dolan song I heard over the weekend – nothing to do with the post, just a cute song 😉
Have a good one!
