I know I have not been here in awhile. I have not been online at all. Have been SO busy. All is good. easy child is doing much better, - she does still get morning sickness, but it is much much less than the 24 hour nonstop way of before, FINALLY. She has stopped loseing, and she even gained 4 pounds. School is going well for her. I have been working clearing out our basement of 20 years accumulation to fashion some semblance of a mini apartment for her. It is VERY slow going, I am working alone. My son has grown so much in the last 3 months, he is now as tall as me- altho he is thin- and I had to go get him some new pants, yikes, it was hard to find them small enough in waist but long enough, LOL. My "baby" is now a "young man" I guess. LOL. This weekened he is going away to this leadership/antidrug thing- part of Operation Snowball. easy child had been going for 7 years, had been "staff" the last few years, this is my sons 3rd year going, and next year HE gets to be "staff" easy child begged to be the one to drive him there...I sure am going to miss him, LOL. As I said easy child is doing better, and one weekend she and her boyfriend went to the city by train to museum....the following weekend, she took my son and her boyfriend and they went to another museum, and then the weekend after that, easy child took difficult child to city to a country music festival- all by train. My kids have always been somewhat close, but are becoming even more so recently. easy child has been taking over some of the homeschooling here, at her request-----and evenings are filled with the 3 of them and pcs boyfriend playing board games in my kitchen. It amazes me the little changes the kids go thru, the way they relate to each other, and to me. We did find out the sex of the baby, a couple days after nvts found out the sex of hers. easy child is very happy, as is her boyfriend. Her boyfriend dad is also now becoming quite excited at the idea of grandfatherhood. He has taken to calling easy child once every other day to ask how she is doing, and if she needs anything. Sadly, bfs mom (his parents are divorced shortly after easy child and boyfriend began dateing) still refuses to even acknowledge the baby at all. This baby will be their first grandchild, as well as mine. I want to wish you all a good weekend.....and in case I do not get back online soon, a happy halloween, too. I hope you get far more treats than tricks. LOL.
