of course, PMS is likely the reason for my OA-ness, but still.
one of my very favorite cousins is leaving this week for guam. his dad is already there, working steadily, and has already secured a job for him as well. he was the second grandchild born after me (i was 7) and i remember being so enamored by him, rushing to help feed/change/hold him when he was a baby. i have lots of great memories of growing up together.
funny, he's only two months older than the hub.
anyway, i've known he was going, but he never had a set date for departure. he announced late last night on FB that he's leaving thursday and doesn't have any plans to come home anytime soon. he's the teen's ninong, which means "godfather," and she's at her dad's this week. i was going to ask the ex if i could borrow her tomorrow after school to go and see him so she could say goodbye, but now she's home sick with flu-like symptoms.
gah! i'm super sad
