Guess I'm feeling sorry for myself. I miss the kids as I haven't seen any of them in 3 wks since eldest DS returned home to BC. Not likely to see him again before next April. My youngest DS & his fiancee were to come up last week but both were sick. So they are saying it will be Cdn Thanksgiving before they have free time to head this way. I get that everyone has busy lives but I get so jealous of my youngest DS's future in laws & my DD's in laws as they see the kids a lot.
DS & his fiancee moved in with her parents to save money so my DS could go to school full time. Between his school & part time job, he has little free time for the 75 min drive here. There isn't really any place for us to visit them as they have a bedroom in the basement at her parents. DD lives 2 hrs away & her in laws are 30 mins away. SIL prefers to spend time with his family, so we didn't see much of them even when we were only 30 mins away. SIL's brother was just married Sept long weekend & so they spent 4 days with his family, then DD has 1 1/2 days of last weekend & they went to her in laws cottage last weekend. It's hard for us to go into see DD & my grandson as DD works so many shifts & rarely has more than 24 hrs off. SIL ignores us when we are there, so we feel like we shouldn't stay too long.
Oh well, time to pull it together. We will see DS, DD, grandson & SIL on Sat for SIL birthday. Hope I can get my grandma fix on Sun as it won't happen on Sat with the other grandmother there. She has never been able to let me spend time with our grandson. So I just let her have him rather than confuse the poor kid with 2 women fighting over him. lol Don't get me wrong, they are nice people.
