She Leaves and Heaves a Sigh and Says Goodbye

May 10, 2009

Today is going to be pretty low-key.  Leigh is still away at college, and Rebecca is getting ready to move on Tuesday.   To add insult to injury, she’s taking my new “grandson” with her.  Meet Dexter the adorable corgi.

Rebecca will be taking a break from her packing to spend some time with me this afternoon.  I invited my mother over for lunch (salmon and pasta salad), and Becca will be joining us.   It’s kind of sad to be bidding my daughter a fond farewell on Mother’s Day.   The sting is lessened, however, because she’ll still be around for a while.  She’s going to come back twice a week for summer and fall classes at a local SUNY school.   There’s nothing comparable in the area she’s moving to, so she decided to commute until she completes her Bachelor’s degree.  I don’t know what she’s going to do about her Master’s, but I’m sure she’ll work something out.

I’m amazed at how quickly Becca and Matt were able to put this move together.  At first, it looked like it was going to be difficult to find a decent apartment, especially one that allows pets.    They were very disheartened after looking at one unsatisfactory place after another.   But then fortune smiled upon them, and they found an apartment they really like.  I hope they will be very happy there.

Goodbye and good luck, my dear daughter!  (Becca is in the front of the photo.)

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mother’s out there.

    Happy Mother’s Day Stephanie! It’s great that she’s going to commute for a while. That will make this transistion much easier for both of you.

    What wise women you raised. No better gift on Mother’s Day than seeing your grown children do right for themselves!

    Dex is a cutie. All of your fur babies are ridiculously adorable. But you know this already.

    Hope the 3 generation lunch was big fun! ~LA

    Happy Mother’s Day in spite of being sad that one of your girls is moving.

    I expect you will be seeing a lot of her while she commutes this summer.

    Happy belated Mother’s Day! I wouldn’t worry about seeing less of her–she’ll probably come around more than you’d think!
