A grumpy girl


Matt headed back to LSU Wednesday and I was pretty grumpy all week because of it.   Throw in hormones and Louisiana's heat and humidity and I fit the description "hot mess" pretty well.

Here he is with his boss and another summer intern.  This was taken on their last day at work.  Ed Marshall has a tv show in New Orleans that the boys helped him with.  Sadly, he whacked ALL his hair off after this photo.    He said he might grow it out when he does his study abroad.  Good.   I love him with his hair a bit long.





The weekend before he left, he went "skydiving" with a friend.  They jumped out of a plane at 15K feet.    Oh, and they paid good money to do it!   It was a tandem jump for each of them where they were strapped onto a professional.  I'm not sure how his friend felt, but he LOVED it.  I think he'll be doing it again soon....



Dean will be glad not to suffer at his hands for awhile though...

I don't know why I allow myself to get all grumpy and emotional.  I know he will be home in the next month or so.  I just miss him.  I can't imagine how I'll act once Kaela leaves next year.   I'm trying to plan ahead and figure out what to do with my time already!

Sending you BIG hugs my friend .... this parenting thing is SO much harder than I ever thought (well the letting go part is for sure :-( )

Feeling for you! It doesn't get any easier. Ever. They are suppose to grow and spread their wings. But it's hard for a momma when she's had them under her wing for the first part of their lives. But it's how it's suppose to be. And moms are just as strong as those young ones who are ready to conquer the world. You've done well with your two, Val. It shows!!

Your boy is so close. Mine is so far away. Next year, we are in the same boat. Empty nesters. Yikes! Yusef's hair is as long or longer than mine. He keeps it in a knotted ponytail in the back. Skydiving ... whoa -- definitely not my cup of tea. Hugs, Tammy

Looks like Matt is now "Airborne." Of course, I got paid to do my qualification jumps!
