that's the way i feel after my parents leave. they've been here dozens of times, and i still, STILL feel down in the dumps after we say our goodbyes and they drive off, back to the rainy north. yesterday we had been telling tristan that grammie and grandad were going to go bye bye in an airplane back to canada. we told him that a lot, but he still started crying after they left. up until then i had been pretty proud of my lack of tears, but his crying set me off. and then, trying not to let him see me cry made it even worse! so we hugged and talked about how in 3 more months (lots and lots of sleeps) we'll get to fly in an airplane to canada and stay at grammie and grandad's house. that made him happy....until about 10 minutes later when he asked, "where grammie grandad go?"
i do have a few posts in mind, one is a recipe post, but have no motivation to do a long one at the moment. i'm currently trying to stay on top of posting on 3 different blogs. i'm a member of 2 weight loss blogs, one being the "healthy chicks r us" blog i started years ago, and the other one being a "biggest loser at home" challenge blog, where the winner wins quite a hefty amount of cash! i need all the motivation i can get right now, especially after my first week on weight watchers didn't quite yield the results i was hoping for.
i'll be back soon with a more cheerful sounding post. i promise.
