I feel kind of OLD today...

Jazzy girl turned 25 today.

WHOA. HOW did this HAPPEN? Dude. She was 4 yesterday, I SWEAR!

She has been talking to her best girlfriend here in town about looking for a place this fall after she finishes paying off her student load and credit card. And I have been very understanding and asking all the right kinds of thoughtful questions about getting bills in your name and how to save money and working out issues that come up between roommates, and all the while have been feeling the first bit of that 'empty nest' feeling I've heard about.

Yeah, ok, I know she's 25, but *I* am not ready for her to leave. What do you mean I have to let her go and have a life of her own? AUGH!

Also, the boy graduates this year. Officially no more kids in high school. He's going to Langara in the fall. He even won a kind of scholarship/bursary that will cover part of it - how awesome is that?

The GirlyGirl has been getting more shifts at work recently, and just upgraded her First Aid ticket so she can get into the course at VCC she wants to take (or, at least, the one I have told her she should take)

The younger two will be with me at least a couple more years. THEY WILL, THEY WILL I TELL YOU!

I'm not ready for them to move out yet...

Wow! That sounds like a lot of change, but congrats to the boy for getting a partial scholarship!

It is - but I supposed the only constant about life is that it is ever in a state of flux. :)

I think the boy is going to do well in Langara - as long as he keeps focused.

They do grow up so quickly. We have to let them leave the nest eventually and try to become 'friends' instead of parent/mentors and just wait for them to ask for advice. Sucks but that's how it goes.

Glad to hear 'the boy' got a scholarship - lots of other scholarships out there that he can apply for, too.

And best wishes to Jazzy Girl on her BD.

Juliana sends happy birthday wishes to Jazzy from her and D, and me, too! She can't sign onto LJ these days.

Thank you!

I have been *trying* to do the FB thing lately, so hopefully that works better for J!

Hah. I have this theory that time isn't linear, but exponential instead. It seems to me that each dog that I get lives a shorter timespan, but the reality of it is that the time just passes faster.

I bought my first horse as a three year old off the slaughter truck for 89 cents a pound. I remember training him with no barn, no arena, just a big open field and the mountains all around us under a blue sky. He's almost 30 now. Where the hell did the time go?

*hugs*

THAT EXPLAINS SO MUCH! THANK YOU!
