- Wedding: November 1999
My oldest child decided a week ago that he was getting back together with his Girlfriend and moving to California. He leaves TODAY.
They dated about 18 months and she moved here to be with him for about 8 months. They split a few months ago and she moved home to CA. Well – they recently began talking again and have decided to get back together only this time HE is moving THERE. I’m crushed.
I’m probably MORE crushed because 2 years ago his teenage brother died and he’s the only child I have left. I worry more about him, and we are super close. He’s lived with me his entire life and was just planning to get an apartment here in a few more weeks because he finally got a great job.
Now he’s leaving – no 2 week notice for the job, no nothing. Just packed up and he’s getting on a plane today.
I know I’m having a pity party and he’s grown and has to live his own life – but it’s so hard to experience such a loss after already dealing with so much loss in the last couple of years. I’m not in a position to be able to afford to go see him and he has no job now so he can’t come visit… (I’m in Alabama)… so I just get to watch his life happen from afar.
Here’s hoping he comes home soon…
