As time to leave MO gets closer, the tears flow easier and easier. Chad is staying here for now. He’s looking for a full time job and chances are slim he’ll find anything in our area but he’s working here for now and will stay here when we leave. Of course, he’s excited about being on his own, though money will be real tight . . and if he can’t make it and it takes forever to find a real job, he can always come to Texas.
Last night at dinner I was asking him if he’s going to come see me and he said “If you send me the money!” I told him that was fine. Birthday and Christmas money will stay with me til he comes to see me and if one year passes that I haven’t seen him, that money goes back into my account! 🙂
Later last night, I was cleaning out pictures on my memory sticks and began looking at recent pictures on my backup hard drive.
This was when he had received a nice little check from a drawing at school.
He was all dressed up here to go campaigning with his friend who was running for coroner. Would you vote for someone whose friend was dressed like this? 🙂

When he was in his friend’s wedding two years ago.
Oh, I’m going to miss my boy but I know other moms have survived and so will I but I’m going to put this hard drive with the photos somewhere so I don’t accidentally come across when I’m feeling kinda sad . . that would probably send me driving to MO to see him way too often.
