What are all the cool girls doing on a slightly rainy and overcast Saturday?


They're doing laundry and watching Freddy Kruger terrorize Elm Street.... in the first 4 movies of the Elm Street franchise!

Yah, I'm a little surprised I've invested that much time into it, too!

I was on my last load of laundry when I pulled one of Boot Camp Boy's t-shirts out of the washer, it must have been buried in my hamper unbeknownst to me.

Just when you think you're doing ok.... You suddenly realize, nope! You're not.

In my minds eye I could see him wearing that stupid shirt and the realization that I will never again see my boy as he once was reduced me to tears.

Nobody every talks about how hard it is to let your go....

    I truly hope not yes life does change work home and new life in a different place.
    At one point I really think he went to Japan to get away from my brother and wife. But his wife mom visit Japan.
He has always been such a good kid with a loving heart, I hope he is always able to keep those aspects about himself.

    It was easy to let mine go. The hard part was NOT putting my foot in his ass as he went out the door.
Is El Douche you're only child? If my son had been behaving the same way, I would have felt the same as you, to be honest.

    It was all a bit of a rush for you regarding 'boot camp boy'. You never really got the chance to say goodbye properly.
It doesn't help that every fiber of my being did not want him to go. He left a day earlier than he was supposed to, too....

    You never have to "let your kids go"! But you do need to accept that your relationship will change with each milestone event in their lives. I've been through it with two of them. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching them both grow into adult human beings. I don't always like how they've grown, but I admire and love them for the things they've been through and the choices that they've had to make.

    Life is an ever changing landscape, filled with family, friends and events. Take in the scenery and savor the journey. It's all good, even the rough places!
With my oldest son, I have had the opportunity to watch him grow into being an adult human being. All I have to do is pick up the phone and say 'hi' when I'm missing him.... I can still see him any time I want. I don't get to do that with Boot Camp Boy, it is a very different situation. With him, I really did have to just 'let him go'. In a 48 hour period he went from being a high school student to a member of the United States Military.

    You done yor part, Now it is up to him to take what you instilled into him and get the rest of his life in order.. He will be OK.. and BTW Girls are harder to let go, I have let 4 of them into life and so far all is good.. It is hard to let the first ones but it does get easier.. As you see that they are doing OK on their own with some good uprasing...
For me, this one will likely be hardest... Because, he's gone, gone. I can't just pick up the phone to call or hop in the car for a weekend trip or even fly to on a vacation. We'll see what happens when the Spawn leaves... At least I still have 4 more years with her.

    kill 2 birds with one stone..focus all that extra attention on the Spawn..it might help you and it will pay her back for the stunts she has played...bwahaha
I've already told her to be prepared... She gets my 100% undivided attention now since she's the last to leave the nest. She's going to love it! I can tell by the rolled eyes and sighs of exasperation.

    Well, That is cool to me!! I own them all! My favorite franchise, LOL..... you'll get through it.... and you will see him again once he gets leave.
I just got official word that COVID restrictions are back on for him and they've restricted the 10 day leave once again. I really do have this fucking pandemic. Just when it seems things are getting back to normal....

    Just got off the phone with my sister 8nlaw.
    My nephew is on his way back from 5 years in Japan to the states
    In tow the wife from hell and 4 kids.
    First stop for them the wife parents home.for a few day most likely more.
    In North Carolina same state my sister in-law live only 3 hours away.
    She is 72 said she go there but don't to be in the way.
    Let see She only seen my nephew and the oldest daughter at my brother's funeral two years ago. The other three kids on one day and a half visit three years ago where they stayed at her parents home for two weeks.
    The only other way she has seen theses grand kids growing up is by a lap top.
    I'm so pissed off at my nephew if not for my sister in-law ild disowned humans the bitch he married.
    Granted my sister in-law can be to helpful by nature and talk your ear off she mean well. But she should be respected more by her only son. .
    So marine he turned out to be.
I don't think my son will do that to me, but you never can tell once they get married and have kids. Their priorities and focuses change. My fingers are crossed that I will always be in the mix somewhere.

I think it's safe to say, I'm not one of those parents who spout.... "I got them to 18, the rest is one them."
