Things are going well...Greg has been hired full-time by the bottling plant, so that means benefits and more pay. He was practically full time anyway, but now he'll get the full rewards for it.
He went yesterday and took his CDL permit test--passed on the first try! I am so proud of him. A lot of his buddies at the plant had to take it 3 times or more to pass, but not my Baby...hehe.
The little guy has been here since last Friday. He's up with his MeMaw and Poppy right now on the mountain, and I miss him. His mom and stepdad are coming to get him Friday, and I dread his leaving already. I had no idea how fast I could fall in love with this little man who came along into my life when his daddy did. I never dreamed my life would be filled with cartoons, pb&j, Veggie Tales, Pokemon, bandaids and boo-boos, comic books, early-morning snuggles on the couch, and the dramas that only 8 year old boys can create. I never dreamed I would love every single second of it.
I have become the biggest homebody on the planet...I hate to go anywhere anymore. I dread when work starts back in August. All I want to do is stay in my little house with my "guys" and hang out. I want to do laundry, clean, cook for my boys, tend to my lettuce and tomatoes growing in the back, my herbs and flowers growing in the front. I want to stand out on the back porch every night with the little guy and call for the neighbor's cat, look up at a million stars while the jasmine growing on the railing perfumes the air. I never want the summer to end.
My one consolation is that even when it does, there's always next summer, and the next, and the next...so it will be okay.
