After more than a few email comments (thanks for caring, y'all!), I realize I may not have been clear when I posted that The Boy would not be HOME again until October.
That does NOT mean we will not SEE him until October. In actuality, we will see him three times before the school year is over and again this summer.
Wendy and I are mobile, after all. There is, however, a difference between a traveling visit and actually having him home.
So yeah. I know. I should just quit whining.
Done and done.
