DD is moving out...

DD and her BF just got an apartment Friday night and will be moving out in less than 2 weeks. Not sure how I feel about it, kind of sad, don't want them to move. Guess it's time though, can't keep her home forever! The apartment is only 5 minutes drive lol so not like they are moving to another state! Just hard to think of them not here every day...

Oh wow this came out of left field. You know it will happen one day but it still comes out of the blue. Now I have to say 5 minutes away is a huge plus. The place DS bought is about 3 minutes away in the car...if that, and he is here all the time. The way the economy is and the price of food seems to make going home to Mums for a meal happen a whole lot. Tonight there will be 7 here for a roast dinner I think. Not sure if pork or lamb yet will let them pick. A suggestion is to pick something (here it is a sunday roast or a bbq) and set it up for them to come over every week Put it in place and it is something for everyone to look forward to. Hang in there it will give you some more time with DS one on one. (((HUGS)))

I knew they would be moving but I thought not for months still, guess not. Yes I'm sure dd will be calling to see whats for dinner lol she doesn't cook often. Not sure how much time ds and I'll have, he'll be driving in a couple of months and wants to get a part time job.

Well driving is good. He can help out with the shopping lol. Any excuse to drive when they first get their licence. Lol I remember that with DS.

I think that happens with a lot of kids. At least you know he feels comfortable to return home from time to time. Now if only I could convince DS to take all his stuff with him to his place I would be very happy. He says he does not have room, but when I was there last week I noticed the fourth bedroom is absolutely empty...ni might start pushing a little harder. Lol

I told mine this last time that he could NOT move back again!! Now he & his fiancee are expecting a little boy in March so there's no way he'll move back again. We've moved stuff so there's no available room any more.

Time has flown and that little baby will be here before you know it. January is nearly over. I am thinking lots of positive thoughts for a wonderful healthy bubby.

True and the nice thing is that he can't have anyone that's not family in the car for a year. That will give him plenty of time to get used to driving before he starts bringing friends all over the place.

Oh I see. That is good. I wonder how regid the definition of 'family' is. hey the cost of petrol will stop any driving friends around if it keeps going up by the time he is allowed to do that.
