It’s moving day!
And I’m all packed and ready to go. I’ve even rented a big van so I can fit everything in one go.
I can’t wait to begin the next chapter of my life! But wait… there’s some disturbance in the background…
What’s that, dear? I call my husband dear only when I’m angry or annoyed. And I’m a little both right now. He’s constantly reminding me that it’s not me who is moving, but rather it’s our son.
He’s right, of course, it’s HIS moving day. He’s the one about to begin his life as a college student… gutting it out in a college dormitory without air conditioner, eating those mass-produced cafeteria meals, washing and folding his clothes… all on his own. That’s why it’s so important to make sure he brings everything that he needs.
And as far as I’m concerned, it’s not up to him what to pack or bring! Yes, he’ll need shampoo aaand… conditioner! And he’ll need hair comb aaand… hair brush!
I know I sound paranoid, but indulge me, please… I find this very hard… I won’t be seeing his little face everyday from now on… He’s not so little anymore, of course, but to me he will forever be my little guy.
I don’t know how I’m going to spend my days without having to cook for him and yell at him for not cleaning his room. I’m really going to miss him!
He’ll come home for the holidays and the husband promises trips to visit him, but it won’t be the same… Isn’t it unfair that we only have our children pretty much for 18 years? I really think it is…
We’ll be voting for favorite links this week, folks! So make sure you come back on Tuesday to cast your vote. Voting will start at noon EST on Tuesday 8/23.
“I am always blown away by Petra’s creativity! To begin with, I wish I could lick that spoon with the mango steak sauce. Then to see Petra use it brilliantly in a savory meringue for canapes and again in the meatballs! What an elegant assortment of canapes too. I would be parked next to those figs stuffed with mozzarella and drizzled with chili balsamic vinegar. Petra brought the party with her to Fiesta Friday!” — Sandhya
“Only Petra can turn a good recipe (ahem, mine) into a great one! This is just glorious! She is Fiesta Friday’s very own Iron Chef. How lucky are we!” — Angie
“One glance at the photos that James shared and I knew this was something I would love. The shrimp in the sandwich appear to be cooked to perfection. There’s something about a Po Boy sandwich that screams summer. I can picture myself sitting on the dock of a bay, toes dipping in the water and this sandwich (two hands required) moving towards my mouth. Yum!” — Nancy
“Finally! I’ve been waiting for a Po Boy recipe I can trust! This one ticks all the right boxes!” — Angie
“Naina’s Nordic dessert with a romantic name like Bondepige Med Slor had me hooked right away. And her superb photos, the description, the recipe and the cause behind it are all noteworthy. I also liked the fact that it is a healthy dessert, with fresh apples from her yard. I cannot wait for apple season to arrive here so I can try that rye bread topping!” — Sandhya
“These tacos look so enticing … Char grilled shrimp… The spicy sweet marinade… And homemade jalapeño tortillas. There’s a whole lot of flavor going on here and I want it my mouth … Now! Julie upped the deliciousness factor for me with her beautiful plating.” — Nancy
