Things get totally hectic sometimes and life gets away from you.
That is how things have been here. Lives change in such a small period of time that it all seems like the blink of an eye. One day we are a family of six, and the next someone moves out and another goes into the hospital for an extended period of time and everything seems like it will never be the same again, when not really a whole lot has changed. It's still the same house and we are still the same family, but it seems empty some how.
One person can change the personality of a whole household. My son (who moved in with his father) seemed to be that personality. He comes home on the weekends, but the week seems so long without him here. He was our glue, that kept the family lively and laughing. There isn't as much laughter during the week now.
One little change and nothing is the same again.
