There were no-eye witnesses. <BR> <BR> After church, hubby and I went to Hu Hot for lunch. They have everything labeled well, and are very Daniel Fast friendly. We were stuffed to the gills when we left, all on healthy veggies and some brown rice.

Thoughts of food are reminders to pray. The timing for the fast is perfect for us. We need to pray lots to get through the adjustment of our only son going to college as well as for the finances necessary to pay for his continued education.

I've been crying off and on ever since. It is so hard to face the reality that our only son will never live here again. I know that is as it should be, but it doesn't make it hurt any less. I would gladly drive the 10 hours just for one more hug. Ain't I a big baby? <BR> <...

Lots of mixed emotions. Walked over 10 miles going back and forth across campus to take care of all the business details. All that is left is to take him to the bank tomorrow morning. It is our last little favor before we leave. Upper classmen move in tomorrow, so if he moves his car, he'll lose his spot. He had planned to go today, but there ...

How dairy. <BR> <BR> It was so strange today to be out of milk, and not having to go to the store. Our son usually drinks at least a gallon a day. Two a day is not that unusual. Since hubby and I don't drink it, and it was his last full day at home, we didn't bother to buy more. Just doesn't seem right. We've been joking that what we save on milk will pay f...

It was our son's last Sunday at church for a long while. It was hard on him saying goodbye. His youth pastor gave him a really nice "gift basket" for college because of his service and willingness to work and minister to others. It was really sweet and totally unexpected. The rest of the day has been devoted to family time. <BR> <BR> This week...

Slept in this morning, which was nice. Felt good to start the day with plenty of sleep. My men wanted to go to the city for lunch and a movie. Didn't work out that way.

Our school got a new Reading series this year, and we didn't lay eyes on it until the first day of school on Monday. Talk about a recipe for stress.

Did some decluttering and organizing early on. Kind of a lazy afternoon, but I did make a trip to the library and to Wal-Mart. Decided to be even lazier and eat out, kept it healthy though.
