Happy Monday one and all! Hope you had a fantastic weekend. I don't know why, but it sure seems like this weekend flew past like crazy! My weekend consisted of a LOT of tears, and laughter both. It's a long story, but I will give you just the recap and am keeping it real. As you know, my daughter and her husband were living with us for the past 3 1/2 months. Her husband had moved back to Arkansas to attend his last 2 semesters at home so he can graduate next May and our daughter stayed here. Needless to say, it's been a bad situation for a while with him, but even worse now that he left her here 7 months pregnant. She finally reached her breaking point after only a week and a half and couldn't take being apart from him, so she left on Saturday morning to be with him back home. I don't blame her at all, that's where she should have been anyway, but he wouldn't let her go and said she needed to stay with us until after the baby was born. Long story short,...he and a friend ended up driving overnight to get here and made it at 8:30 Saturday morning, and they were gone by 9:30 that same morning. I'm not quite sure why, but it hit me SO hard that she was leaving the nest AGAIN. She NEEDS to be with her husband - that is her place, but I was really looking forward to having her AND the grandbaby here for the next 8 months, so I have shed a lot of tears since Friday and got very little sleep as well. If things weren't tense with her husband and us, it wouldn't have been so hard, perhaps, but that definitely doesn't help the situation at all. Now, depending on WHEN she has the baby, and if it ends up being a scheduled c-section or not, will determine if we make it there before the baby is born and if I still get to cut the umbillicle cord, much less get to spend quality time with her and our new grandson. :(
After they left (and I couldn't quit crying), my husband decided we needed a road trip and STAT. There was no way I could stay in our house that day and night with my daughter being gone. It was hard enough not having her here when we got back yesterday, but, I couldn't even walk by their room without breaking down and sobbing uncontrollably. So, we took off and headed to Dallas to see my cousin and his family and hang out for the night with them. It was JUST what the dr. ordered for sure. I laughed and laughed and laughed. And we ate awesome food, listened to music and enjoyed a few drinks. It.was.perfect..... We even ended up at an old timey record store picking out "albums" from the good old days. :)
Have a great day lovies and thanks for stopping by. Can't wait to hear all about your weekend and how you spent it.
Lots of love and hugs,
