It's been a weekend of emotions in this household. Friday started with moving my youngest out of the house he has lived in during the last 3 years with 3 of his buddies. This is a house hubs and I bought for this purpose and put on the market 2 weeks ago. Came home with the rental truck loaded to the max and had a message on the recorder that there was a offer on the house. YAHOO it was a good offer, and there paying with cash which is even better and all we have to do is clean the carpet. Doesn't get much better than that. I will keep my fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly and it closes on June 5th like it's suppose to.
Saturday morning we headed down to Mpls where he will be living and spent most of the day getting him moved in. Time was a factor on Saturday and we left his apartment in a shambles because there was no time for any organization and even getting groceries in the cupboards. The bed got made and that's about all that did. We still had a 3 hour drive home and son still had 1 more hour after that because he was going back up to the college house for the rest of the weekend.
Sunday was college graduation for my baby. The ceremony was wonderful and HOT in the gym where it was held. Of course my sweet little Canon camera decided at some crucial moments to be on the blurry side and totally tick me off. I got some pics and a nice one of the 3 of us after graduation and that's the one that really counts.
To top off everything during this weekend I came down with the mother of all colds, which I never get. There was no down time for resting and trying to get better. Today I'm heading to the doctor for some magic beans that I hope will help speed this cold along. I head out of town to Salt Lake City on Thursday for quilt market with my quilt designing friend to be her helper and I'd better be in good shape or it could be a long few days for everyone involved.
So the emotions have been on a roller coaster this weekend, sadness of leaving friends behind, because it will never be the same, excitement at the start of a new chapter in his life, fear for Mom for him being far away from me (although I know he will be fine), joy at his successes in college and tears for the baby who has become such a wonderful young man (and how fast that time went), exhaustion for dealing with all of these emotions in a small time frame.
Memories from the past and the ones coming in the future - PRICELESS
