I actually got to spend some grand time with my son. Just as a quick reminder--I have twin boys..they are 19 years old (soon 20) ...one lives in South Florida and the other just moved to Tennessee to attend college. The one that went to TN...is the one that came for a visit. He looked wonderful...and REALLY helped a great deal around the house. He got the heavy stuff moved to my daughter's room and also...cleaned up stuff that I just could not do myself...alot of ladder work.
Of course we had to spoil him while he was here...I paid him quite abit for all the work he did....I could not believe the changes in the house...we also bought him a cellphone...the one he had ...he had to give back to his aunt...(it does not cover tennessee) so we bought him one like ours that does...that way he is not on the road without help a phone call away. My van (remember that vechicle???) well my son always liked it...well something is up with the motor...it just does not run right at all...so he is sending us the money for a new motor and I gave him my van. We also took him to his favorite restaurant and we all oinked out....it was delicious...and alot of fun. Now I took dozens of pics of course...I always do...but my camera decided to die and now I need another one...it will not even upload the pics that I took...I am so devastated...but it figures. It can only happen to me.
He is back in Tennessee now...and I already miss him but he is so happy with the way things are there, that I could not be happier for him...boy is it rough letting go. I think we also bought him some clothing stuffies he needed and a pair of sandals...we are definitely a sandal family...lol.
The son and daughter got along GREAT this time seeing each other...I think being away from each other makes their hearts grow fonder...and they were inseparable...and so funny. They had me laughing the whole time.
