Rough Day Today!

Well, last night about 12:30 a.m. my son called from college crying. His girlfriend of over a year broke up with him. She told him she still loved him, but couldn't do the long distance thing anymore. She's in the Houston area, he's in Dallas. Today I can't get ahold of my son since he won't answer his phone, text messages, and he hasn't been on his facebook. I know he has classes, but I wish he would just say, hey, mom, I'm here and busy. It hurts so much when one of your children hurt and you can't be there to put your arms around him/her and give them a big hug and be there where they just cry on your shoulder. I know it will get better, but....

Right now I'm resisting the urge to go eat a candy bar (chocolate, of course). I'm such an emotional eater and my son hurting has got that candy bar calling my name! I know things will get better. It's just convincing my son they'll get better.

  1. Mom here, I know exactly how you feel. Good job resisting the candy bar. It won't make you feel better and it sure can't help your poor baby. Hang in there...I always love the parents that think the hard stuff will end when their kids grow up! LIttle kids, little problems. Big kids, big problems! Hugs to you in the meantime.
