It's been an odd month. My son Ben has been in Israel since the day before all the current fighting. He's fine and the tour he is on made adjustments. He'll be back on Sunday, but the focus of my time has been spent watching the news. I've done some knitting, finishing both socks of the Child's First Sock pattern before ripping the first one back to the heel to redo the gussets. I should finish this weekend and then Ben will be home and we'll need to get him ready for college.
We had a preview of the empty nest sydrome this past month with both boys gone. It's not as bad as I expected. The overwhelming reality is that life is kind of boring without the kiddos. Need to find something, other than pointy sticks, to do.
