Hi. Life is in full session at my humble abode. My College Studette is a graduate from University of Colorado at Boulder. Go Buffs!! So her new name is......Graduate Studette!!! I am so proud of her. My twins...Soceer One Stud and Running Stud got their drivers licenses!!! Oy....actually they are great drivers and my life is way less hectic.....except that I do get a bit ruffled in my knickers until I know they are home safe and sound. I gotta say I love that they have to be in by 11:00..it's the law my darling Studs!!! Sometimes you gotta love the law!! Soccer Stud Two culminated from middle school. I have three testosterone boys in high school. How did this happen?!? Time does fly...and with time flying..my hair seems to be getting more gray, so today I went way blonde to hide the gray and to hide the wrinkles that just "appeared" overnight!! Could it be that I have more on my plate than I need?!? I mean lets face it...having teenagers is a full time job of navigating them into to safe waters, trying not to take their "you soooooo are annoying me" tone when I ask them to clean up the man-cave, do the dishes, stop bickering, clean your room, go get a job.....and so on and so on. I am pooped just thinking about and writing this!!! I have to say that I am fortunate to have The Hubby support me most of the time. I have to admit that sometimes I feel a bit left out in the cold because he can act like a teenager too!!! Having Graduate Studette back home is a HUGE lift to my spirits because she gets me....all the estrogen parts of me. She gets that I cry at commercials. She gets that sometimes I look in the mirror and feel like I am not me...and the next day I look in the mirror and I am back to me!! Oh the joys of women bonding!!!! I will say that these past few months have been filled with joyous celebrations. I love mi familia and even though I am in the eye of the testosterone storm...I wouldn't trade my life. My heart is warm and full and joy surrounds me.
Why listen to Wolffie? Because I get it. Tomorrow is Fathers's Day. I miss my daddy. This year it is not as painful as years past and I am not sure why. I do know that I want to celebrate The Hubby tomorrow. He is a fabulous dad. Our kids love him so..you can see it in their eyes. They think he is a kick and he is. He is his own true self...a bit quirky and really fun spirited. That's why I fell in love with him. He beats to his own drum and his passion for life is so infectious. He is a family man first and I both love and respect him for that. My daddy was a family man too. "They" say that a girl marries a man that is like her dad. I married a man that is kinda like my dad. My dad LOVED my mom and I feel that in my guy. He truly loves me. My dad LOVED his kids..and I see and feel that in my guy. I think this year I am not so sad about Father's Day because I am focusing on The Hubby. I feel blessed that my kids cherish their dad. I feel blessed that we still love each other and parent our kids together. So, tomorrow I will celebrate that I loved my daddy and because of him...I fell in love with my guy. Happy Father's Day Daddy. I love you. Happy Father's Day Hubby. I cherish you.
