Does anyone have any...

spare time that I could borrow for the next few weeks (month tops!) that I will give back after I am done with it!




Tyler is leaving on the 18th (yes, of this month!!) and I am not ready. He is prepping, and has a few things left to do, but while I am trying my hardest to bend my head around it, just can't seem to be able to get around not crying when I think about not seeing him for two years. I am totally excited about the adventure, the location, the reason and everything else! But man two years seems like forever right now.

This is a layout I made a few months ago with pictures from a trip to visit with Christina. I wrote myself some advice, and it seems really applicable right now for me and Tyler, so it seemed worth sharing.

Off to enjoy an evening with the family watching Chuck and snarfing down some lasagna that Tyler made for us this afternoon! We all went to the Draper Temple open house together earlier today, so beautiful, and now some quiet time together is just what I need!

Enjoy your time today - I don't know how I am going to handle when my son grows up and leaves - I imagine I will be emotional yet excited for his growth - lots of mixed emotions - I will probably be calling you for advice! hope you have a wonderful month filled with lots of good things and memories! What a special time for your family.

I'm sending all my spare time your way.

Better clear out an extra room to make space for all of it.

Or not.

I know how hard it was when each of my girls moved out of our home to go to school, but at least I could visit them and vice versa. I know that you are glad that he is fulfilling a mission, but that doesn't make it any easier to say good-bye. I don't have much spare time to send your way, but I sure do have a lotta love in my heart for what you're going through. Hang in there, my friend.

Oh sweet B, I know how excited you are but it's human, and motherly, to be sad... It's such a huge blessing that you have a truly loving relationship with each of your kiddos. Enjoy your time with him, sending a some extra hours your way!

We LOVE Chuck! I am not looking forward to the day that Z leaves for 2 years. Ugh. Very bittersweet feelings there. I am sending hugs to you. As for spare time, I need some, too. I have very little to spare.
