Still sad......

Looks like Jake is doing ok......doesn't look as down and out....OR, that could be an act so I'll leave him alone.

I can't imagine how he feels because I know how much I miss Kayla. She was a huge part of our family and we were all very close to her. Her and Jake had been together almost 3 years!

So here's the thing about kids.....they bring these girlfriend and boyfriends around and some you don't like, and you're all happy when that ends. But then some you just love and they become such a big part of your family. You become so attached to these kids and actually begin worrying about them as much as you worry about your own kids. And that's how it is with Bucky, who goes with Jacquelyn. Bucky is 22 and Jacquelyn is 21 and they have been together 4 1/2 years........my goodness, if anything happens to them, I don't know what I would do! Bucky is like my son...it would leave such a hole in our lives if he wasn't around.

And now Kayla......who I loved to call Kayla-la! I felt close to her and loved for her to be in the kitchen cooking with me. I teased them all of the time that Jake wasn't my fav......Kayla was! haha..

and so it goes.......you become attached but nothing with kids this young can be forever!

So I'm off of work tomorrow so today is my FRIDAY...woo hoo!!
and we are heading to North Carolina on Sat morning for my mom's family reunion. Just a very short trip and will be back Sunday evening.

later........

i do worry about that with my daughter and her boyfriend. they have been together all through high school and he is like a part of the family. i don't want to rush either of them into marriage, who knows, it might not work out. but thank god he is my son's friend too.

have a great weekend.

My son and his girlfriend, Kayla have been dating over a year and we have talked to him about their relationship because they are both off to college in a couple weeks. They will be 20 minutes from each other...so we pray for the best! It's hard though. Have a good weekend.

My boyfriend of 3 1/2 years and I just broke up because he doesn't want to get married. While I am devastated to lose the relationship, I didn't realize how sad I would be to lose the relationship with his mom. I called her right after we broke up and she told me I could always be in her "family," but I know this is bs. She has to choose her son! Breakups just suck for everyone involved.

It's kind of funny that I already can "kind of" relate to that. Cesar and Kiana have been best friends since 3rd grade, but they have followed different friends, so they are not as close as they were before... but I LOVE when Kiana comes to visit. She came for Coco's B-day, just to say happy b-day to her. And she and her mom stop by every once in a blue moon, jsut to chat.
Hope they can work something out!
