A TOUGH YEAR

This year is going to be a tough, or should I say challenging year in our house.  You see, William, our 17 year old, decided to make a life changing decision to attend his senior year in Nevada, Missouri.  He's living with my parents and attending our alma mater, Nevada High School.  There were lots of factors that played into his decision to change and I'm very proud of him for weighing all the pros and cons.  Mom always said what doesn't kill you will make you stronger.  Man I'm going to be a bionic woman in no time at all.

We have been back and forth the last several weeks, getting things in order and moving things.  I have spent the last two weeks in Nevada, getting him settled and the first two weeks of school under his belt.  Things were going along pretty good and then we hit a road bump.  It's called reality and it hit when mom had to leave to go home to Texas and leave her baby boy 9 1/2 hours behind.  I thought I was handling it pretty good.  I only shed a few tears when we pulled out of the driveway.   I made it the long drive home and was unpacking the car, took something to my new bathroom, aka William's former bathroom, which is adjacent to his bedroom and I lost it.  I came out of there boo hoo-ing.  Gregg didn't understand what happened.  And I didn't either.  I guess it just hit me, and hit me hard, like a ton of bricks.  Yes, I know I will survive and all will be just fine but I'm ready to go back.  NOW!!!  Guess I better get busy and get my quilts quilted so I can. 

A few months ago, Gregg jokingly suggested that maybe I should buy a trailer and put my longarm quilting machine in it and travel from town to town picking up quilts and quilting them while in that town.  I laughed at him and said I don't think so!  Maybe he was on to something.  A mobile quilting business.  I could take it with me to Nevada and still be working.....  hmmm.....
