Well I was sorry to read that so many of you have been having issues with Blogger as well! I had hoped to reply to your comments personally, but that doesn't appear as though it's going to happen.
I will try again tomorrow, but for now I'm still having problems, and I'm just not up for finding solutions today!
Yesterday, I felt well enough to accompany my son and Mr. Tide up the road to pick out a suit. The suit is for our son, and although he's had suits in the past, at nearly 21 this was his first really "nice" suit as he will likely be able to wear it for a few years.
He tried on something they call an "extreme fit," what we would have called an athletic fit a few years ago, but a bit more slim cut than even that...think Daniel Craig as James Bond. I almost wanted to cry when he tried it on as he looked so handsome! Recently he's moved from wearing cowboy boots, jeans, and t-shirts, to becoming quite the style mavin with rugged sweaters, chinos, and crisp white button downs.
I knew this day would come, just as it did with our daughter, but darn it, I am not ready for all of my birdies to be flying the nest and making their way into the world so soon. It seems like just yesterday I was taking him to get fitted for his first pair of shoes, and now here we are picking out suits so that he can begin interviewing for internships and eventually careers!
Where does the time go people?! If any of you find a time machine I would love to go for a ride. Not because I'm stuck in the past, but just so that I can enjoy those lost moments once more.
I remember well how my parents used to say, "enjoy every minute of their growing up, because in an instant they are grown and out on their own." How right they were, and thankfully I listened and did enjoy each phase as best I could with life whizzing by.
Maybe that is why I'm drawn to places with history, old movies, or shows like Downton Abbey?! There is real comfort in knowing that some things never change, like architecture, monuments, or a favorite street. In cities like London and Paris there are streets and views that haven't changed for many years, and although I do embrace change, I like the continuity and thought that some things never change.
I hope you all get your Blogger, gmail, electronic woes figured out too. I wonder what it must have been like to say..."my scroll isn't working, it keeps rolling up!" I guess they probably complained about those sorts of things too. And I think lots of change will be coming to Downton Abbey this season, for the only thing that truly never changes, is the fact that things are always changing.
