Default Sad day for me!

I know this is silly but I just put my son in law, daughter, and 2 month old grandson on a plane to go home to Oregon. Will not see my little guy until Dec. 13. Breaks my heart. He is so darn cute. They live too far away!!!! I am so thankful for all, but still my heart is aching!

I can certainly understand how you feel.... Two of my grandchildren are several hundred miles away - and we don't get to see them often.....Have NEVER even gotten a chance to babysit for them. Thank goodness I do have one more here in town - that does make it a little easier. But for several years I only had one - and she was far away. Also, be greatful for your computer - hopefully they have a digital camera and can send you lots and lots of pictures so you can watch them grow.

I understand your pain, but Dec. 13 is not so far away, and just think how CUTE he will be by then!

I flip out if I skip a weekend seeing a couple of my babies. Can't imagine going 3 months. Have never gone 3 weeks. I have even gotten off a cruise ship and driven directly to my daughter's house for a "fix".

So does this mean that your new countdown clock will start to reflect how close you are to having your grandbaby next summer? I hope you get lots of chances to collect airmiles and get to visit frequently. I am so grateful that my girls have such a close relationship with their great grandparents regardless of the fact that they are miles away. Bless new technology for keeping us all closer. I hope you get there in October.
