I Still Worry About Him. I Always Will.

I just thought I'd give a little update. I really have nothing relevant to blog about, except for my progress on my laundry room. That will take a little longer than I have right now, so I'm saving it for tomorrow...or Saturday. I am really making progress and can't wait to show you!

All the activities have begun for school to start back. And, since I work at an elementary school, things are really getting down to the wire. We have lots of construction going on. They are totally revamping the bus loop and the car lanes, as well and the rest of the parking lot. They are also working diligently on the new offices that will be on the other side of the school. It has been interesting to see the progress. I just hope it is all ready before school starts back on Aug. 12.

I am a 12 month employee, meaning that I work year 'round. No summers off for me! I do get vacation days, but I use those when I take a notion to take off. (Notice how I used some Southern speak there "notion"). We are usually too broke to go on a full week vacation! Oh well, such is the way of life.

Justin still has not heard from the interview that he went on a couple of weeks ago. He said that he HAD heard that the lady went on vacation after the interviews, so hopefully, she has not made any decisions yet. I really hope he finds something soon. I worry about him and his new family. I guess all mothers do. You think that when they get out and on their own that you can loosen the reigns a little, but you just worry about them more. I guess it's because he is there, and I am here. I talk to him almost every day, though. But, it's just not the same. I hate that he is so far away (even though it's just an hour). Maybe once he gets a job I won't worry as much...

but I doubt it.

you will still worry...both of my older boys are off to college and each one is an hour from me...in opposite directions...and I miss them dearly...worry about them constantly..heck when I see its storming where they are I call and warn them its coming!! Its a mom thing.....but once he is working that will be one less thing that will be on your mind. *hugz*

Hi Sandra,
Can't wait to see your laundry room. Your son, grandbaby and daughter-in-law are in my prayers. My husband's workplace- (a middle school) is undergoing all kinds of construction too. When I was a teacher I didn't really like seeing the "Back to School" ads, but now that I'm a mom, well, it ain't so bad...:)

Dena, I guess worrying is in a mother's job description!

Loren, I was ready when it was time for school to be out, but now I'm ready for it to start again! I don't think my boys are, though.

Kathy, I may have to come to you for some grandmother advice. It sounds like you have gotten this thing down. :)
