Doug's mom left early this morning.
At 9 a.m. I took Max to Kindergarten orientation and had to face the reality of my little boy starting real school in a few months.
This afternoon I finished my current book "New Moon" by Stephenie Meyer. (More about it later.)
I also realized that Doug's vacation is coming to an end and he'll be gone full-time again starting on Monday.
All of these things have combined to snap me back into reality a little too harshly. After the relaxing, worry-free week I've had, I'm feeling a severe sense of loss.
Luckily, I have a little something to ease the pain:
(Gabriel had a bit of jaundice so he's outside getting a little sunshine therapy in these pictures. This was before the Doctor told us, "Just don't put him in direct sunlight. Make sure it's filtered through a window." Don't worry...he didn't get sunburned.)
