Lesley Chandler says Good Morning

Happy Sunday! I have been in a funk again. Cried like a baby Friday night-indulged in self pity regarding Cody being gone. I still can't seem to figure out how to deal with this. But, Craig called him at about 10:20 P.M. and Cody talked to me for about 20 minutes. I was so happy to hear him. He sounded great. He is learning so much about computers and about how to live independently. He is sounding more and more like a man-still my son-but a man. Hmmm.

He had called me sometime during the week and told me "I miss my family" and he sounded a little depressed. I had already considered flying him home soon so I told him this. He says "Mom...do you realize how much those tickets are?" I was proud to hear him say that but I told him I did not care...he was coming home! He was happy. I think he misses us and perhaps his girlfriend a little more. That's o.k...that is how it is supposed to go huh?

My friend Renea says it gets easier and easier so I will just keep pushing forward. On that note, pushing forward to all of my projects. The pillow should be done today. The two purses...I get a little bit done every day. Today, I gotta do laundry and housecleaning so the art will have to be during breaks or tonight when I'm done with my chores-(would much rather be doing art...but prefer not to live in filth).



Fantabulistic Day!

Oh, me and Heather had a great day yesterday. We went to Midland to go shopping for her some clothes for work. We picked her out several cute little outfits and some other things. She also purchased that Post Secrets book so she read those to me on the way home. We had a great time. I can't wait to see her in her new outfits for work. She is such a cutie and she loves to dress up.

Aww, Cody's doing well and he's doing well because he's got a fantabulistic support system at home, girlfriend. My prayers are with you all right now--you're an amazing mommy, that is clear. You did that just PERFECTLY, by the way, you. are. in! xoxo
