Singing the Blues

Bit down in the dumps today. DS was up for the holiday weekend and I am really missing him now that he's back at school. Especially since I spoke to him last night and he's sounding homesick. That happens to him after we see him. I suppose he will get used to it in time but it's still hard. He's been at school now just a little less than six months. I know that being away at this school is best for him but it's so hard at times. He has special needs and we couldn't find the right program for him here near to home so he goes to school three hours away and lives in the dorm. Really a house, with nine other boys. He has his own room and it's a wonderful place and great academically. He's made progress since being there. But I'm still a mommy and a mommy will miss their baby when he's away. Even when said baby is starting a mustache, is 5 foot 8 inches and has started to get a deeper voice.

I have one ear left do to for the bunny rabbit I'm making for my nephew and then I have to make the little sweater that goes with it. Pictures will go on the blog when finished. The blanket for my niece is also done. No picture for that as it's the same as the last blanket and I think it would be redundant to post this picture as well. I'm going to give it to her on Sunday with the rabbit. The socks haven't been touched recently but I think I'll get to them this week. Anyone interested in a progress photo on them and the sweater?

Tomorrow I have another freelance assignment to do which may turn into a long term relationship with this client, so keep your fingers and toes crossed for me.

Just wanted to let you know that there are goodies waiting to be boxed up and sent your way. Very soon...very soon!

Have a lovely weekend.

I don't want my bunnies to grow up either! Unfortunately the eldest one now has a voice deeper than his Dad's (14 years) and I think his legs are hairier too! ;)
