Our Boy is HOME! I was SO happy to hug his neck!!!!!!!

I did not even have to pick him up, he was hand delivered by MalPal, bless her little heart!

We have been talking. And laughing. Then we talked and laughed. I spent much time just looking at him. He said it seemed so weird to be home and had we changed things???

The Ab-Cat had school and Mousey had LAX so we decided to hold off on the spaghetti and garlic bread dinner and go out. We figured there was some place he had a hankering to hit up. Oh he did. He wanted a Coney dog. Two. Loaded.

I did not realize that Coney’s were not nationally available. Did you know that? An formal poll, calling all of you non Mitten residents, do you have Coney Islands???

The Subject stopped by after work and joined us. I can’t say for sure if his hankering was as strong. He says the Moody food is not that bad, in direct contrast to The Boy, who insists that it is.

It was good to see those two knuckleheads together again.


So he is home, has had a Coney, gotten his haircut (oh.my.word.) visited his jr. high small group leader, whom he dearly loves, and almost had both ears talked off. And we get to do it all over again today! Thank you Lord for breaks from college.


Really big, long, contented, sigh.
