Moo and Budgeting

Our youngest son, nicknamed Moo, moved into his own place 3 weeks ago for college. We made sure he had everything he needed and our village blessed us as well. However, there is one thing Moo needs: BUDGETING SKILLS! Moo outside his apartment. I realized Moo would need some assistance in this area months ago.…

Staying in the Sling

After Moo's doctor's appointment last week, the doc gave him a new contraption to wear that would help keep his collarbone stay in place and heal properly. The new contraption seemed to be a good idea, because he no longer had to put his arm in a sling, so he had a bit more freedom.…

For Our Good

Before Moo and I set out to walk this morning, his father informed him that he would be moving up to the next age group in football. And contrary to what I normally do, I decided not to say anything to Moo about it while we were walking. I wanted him to process his feelings…

Mixed Messages

So, Moo and I are walking and talking, about football and every other random fact that he wanted to share with me this morning. He began to share with me his decision to try to stay with his age group and play football with them, as opposed to moving up to the next age range.…

Moo seemd excited, so off we go, jogging a while, walking a while....during one of our walking episodes, Moo tells me that he really needs to burn some calories today, because he had some…

The Little Things….

I did my usual this morning. I woke up, but laid in bed for a few minutes. I do this mind game thing where I try to guess what time of morning it is by turning over and looking through the blinds in my room. I know, it would be easier to just look at…
