Surprised Again

So, last we heard from Ross, he was headed out to sea, first for a short at-sea then a long LONG at-sea and we didn’t expect to see our erstwhile hero until after the first of the year. But then he got back from the short at-sea and they decided they wanted him to take a couple training classes. Meanwhile, his sub got underway on the long LONG at-sea, leaving him behind for now. Then one of the classes was cancelled. So then he showed up in my driveway!


Without explaining any of this to me OR telling me he was coming beforehand, OF COURSE. He likes to SURPRISE me. And so Ross is home for TWO WEEKS! Then he goes back for the other class then he will be flown overseas to meet his sub and I really won’t see him again until after the first of the year.

Unless something changes and he doesn’t tell me and he just shows up at my back door.

Because we never know, really.

MEANWHILE. My power has been out since yesterday, just got it back this afternoon. This week is shaping up pretty rough here. I’m behind on everything, and needing to focus on getting ready for workshops this weekend. And keeping my Navy boy fed. Back as I can!

    What a beautiful surprise for MOM. Now you can spoil him and do your mom thing that you do OH SO PERFECTLY. The stress of having your children away from home out of shouting distance can cause grey hair, I know that from experience. I see the four leggers are taking note of his presence and seem perfectly content with that. Have fun Suzanne, in spite of the aggravation of electrical issues, which you are so well schooled in. I know that you will be cooking and doing what you love to do. A MOM never loses her touch when it comes to her children and nurturing them, no matter at what age they return to the roost for a spell.

    We are glad to see Ross and know that he is doing obviously well.
    Stay happy and be safe, Suzanne. We send our love to you and your family, including all the little heart beats that do not qualify as humans but are children as well.

    XOXOXOXO

    Great picture of Ross. Either he really likes farm work, or he really LOVES his Mom! I’m glad he’s with you now. Please tell him I’m proud of all he’s doing.

    Awwww, what a wonderful surprise for you!! The fact that he comes back each time to “home” should tell ya something, even if he doesn’t. (I have all boys also, ;-)

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
