Spring has really arrived in my corner of Tn. I have Daffadills blooming! The last week has been sunny and in the 60's and 70's. I get daily reports from all my yankee family and friends how they are surviving frigid cold temps and that last foot of snow they got hasn't melted yet..... I can't help but think how glad I am to be in the south. In other past years, March was a long month that seemed to drag on endlessly cause I was anxiously waiting on spring. This year March is spring! So also starts the parade of visitors. Seems like yang and I are cooking Easter dinner for my parents and hopefully my 15 year old son. He still hasn't made his mind up if he wants to attempt a 12 hour car trip with my parents. I don't blame him in the least there, I wouldn't want to be stuck in a car with my mother for 12 long hours. So yang and I are busy planning all the things to do with my son. After I stroked I was verbally abusive and I damaged the relationship with my son. It has been about 2 years that we have been slowly working on repairing things. Instant messaging helps alot! Being a thousand miles away has helped in a way too. I communicate with him more then I once did when I lived around the corner in my apartment. Christmas morning, he turned on his web cam and I watched he and his sister open the gifts from yang and I. It was the next best thing to being there as I once was. But it works and I'm happy with how things are turning out.
