My favourite time of year is almost over, and the school year is about to begin once again. On Sunday we move Bryan back into his residence at college, and Daniel starts his final year of high school on Wednesday. How can this possibly be? It seems like just yesterday that I was looking forward to the start of summer. Although I will miss sitting outside reading and soaking up the sun’s rays, part of me does look forward to getting back into my normal routine and blogging more regularly once again.
Although it won’t be quite as heart wrenching as last year to drop Bryan off at college, it’s still going to be very hard, so let’s get my mind off of it for a while and have some fun with the mystery photo. I know that sometimes you guys get discouraged because you don’t think you can figure out the mystery photo, but you can’t give up? Relax, open up your minds, and let your guesses fly. Ok, ready, set, go….
Looks like part of a roller coaster to me, have a great weekend, tfif
You too Mr. Bunny 🙂
okay I will go with roller coaster–but I really think it is part of the landing gear from that space ship that visits you periodically
my son is moving to another house this year so we will be going up on Sunday to help him move the big stuff–he is staying on the same street
Hey, quit telling people about my alien friends. They will get jealous :).
I already am–I hear that is where you get a lot of your chocolate!
Oh crap, you figured it out :). If I share with you will you stop telling everyone?
For some reason this is making me think of the ending scene of Men in Black 3. 😛
I move in my uni stuff to another completely new house with more strangers in about a week. It’s going to be stressful. I’m starting a new volunteering thing too. WHERE DID SUMMER GO?
Hope your guys settle in okay!
Hahaha – those movies are hilarious!! Gotta love Will Smith, especially with minimal clothing ;). *fans herself*
Summer did fly by didn’t it? Good luck at uni this year. I know you will do awesome! And thanks for the thoughts about my guys. So, what’s your new volunteer job? Is it still with books? Or, did that become too dangerous LOL!!
Ooooh touche. 😉 I love Will Smith, every word that comes out of his mouth is funny.
It did, and yet it’s the longest one I’ve ever gotten because I had almost four months off! Ohh well, time flies when you’re having fun. 🙂
Unfortunately not another bookshop, in fact, aren’t many bookshops where I’m going to be living (Probably a good thing!) I’m volunteering at a mental health/learning disability place so it could be quite intense and hard work, I’m so nervous about it! The people that work there seem nice though. I just hope I can cut it.
Wow!!! Good for you for volunteering – you are a good person :). And yes, that will be hard work, but you will be amazing. I just know it!
Aha! I’ve got it! Finally got one! It’s a window washer’s scaffold (or a painter’s). I am feeling particularly smug about this guess. 🙂 And welcome back to blogging! I am looking forward to seeing more of you. 🙂
Thanks Dor 🙂
Bah Humbug! I didn’t get it after all. 😦
That’s ok – you’ll get it next time. Don’t give up :).
One of the rides at Wonderland? I can relate to your weekend. We drop of my son on Monday at Western. My heart is sinking 😦
Oh Edith, I know exactly how you are feeling. I’m not going to lie to you – the first time you leave them there is heartbreaking, and it’s usually way harder for us than it is for them. I stayed strong while I was helping Bryan set up his room because I didn’t want to embarrass him, but I cried like a baby all the way home. You know what though? I like to think that is just proof that I am a good mom and have a great relationship with my son. If it didn’t upset me, there would have been something wrong. So, it’s ok to be upset. You will get through it and quickly realize that they generally thrive on being on their own because it allows them to spread their wings and feel like an adult for the first time. Plus, you have to remember that you are really close by if he needs you. Can you imagine what it would be like if he was going to school in another province?? Bryan didn’t even want to call us much or see us much at first, and he barely came home on weekends, but after a few months, he actually started to like it when we dropped by for a quick visit since it’s only 1 1/2 hours away. I am sending you lots of hugs, and please know that I am here if you need to talk.
Thank you so much Cindy. It seems that the running hasn’t stopped this weekend for last minute things. Tomorrow’s the big day and you’re right. I will try and hold it together until I’m in the car heading home.
Hope everything went well today – sending lots of hugs
I was also going to guess a section of an amusement park ride.
Looks like a roller coaster to me.
I’m with the roller coaster crew! My sympathies for the empty next syndrome blues. Our babies do grow up …
Thanks – I appreciate that :). They do grow up very quickly that’s for sure, and both my boys have turned out great, and I’m very proud of them!! It’s still a hard day for a mom though.
Hey .. now about that space ship that brings you chocolate….. if I give you my coordinates can you send it down south to make a stop here.???
and here I was thinking the photo was of that ornament you have on you sideboard…..
Ok, because you are one of my best blogging buddies, I think this could be arranged :). But don’t tell anyone else – my alien friends are kind of shy, and I don’t want to scare them off.
You guys are getting smarter every week!! I just knew you could do it :). Yes, it is a section of a roller coaster from the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto, a fair that I have been going to most years since I was a small child. This roller coaster is quite small compared to the monsters you can find at big amusement parks nowadays, but it’s still a lot of fun. Have a great weekend everyone!!
