yeh both on facebook. keepupto date with youngest this way, but oldest doesnt acknowledge my existance. Am considering moving to be closer to ALL my family (mum, sis, sons etc). Difficult in todays climate though. Still boys have grown up fine and healthy thats the main thing eh.

Hi ladies, Our two daughters are in different states going to college. Our oldest in Charlotte NC and our youngest in San Diego CA, we live in MI. Our youngest daughter is doing her "Studies Abroad" and is in South America so we can not easily call her BUT my husband down Skype. It is a free internet site that allows you to talk face to face if both people have web cams. It is so nice to see them every so often. The one draw back is with having the computer on if either of them is IMming friends they can still do that and talk to us. I have had to park my jealously concerning this. Sometimes it is soo hard being an Adult. lol Ann how long have your children been living far away? At first it was really different to have both girls gone. They both moved to go to college about 3 years ago within 3 weeks of each other. I hope my info about skype helps. I have a sister in FL and they just recently got skype and it is also fun to keep up with her.

Hey. I could tell you all day to get a hobby, start crafting, etc., but that works for a select few. I would suggest getting out. I found the greatest peace when I found my church and hooking up with women in that setting. It's not only making me feel like I have a lot to offer outside of being a parent, I feel like I have more focus. I'm not just a mom to 2 great kids. I'm a woman. Look within yourself and find what it is that caused your kids to grow up so great! It's still there. Just focus it on yourself for a while. hope it helps.

Do your boys have a Facebook page so you can send pics to each other and write updates? It sure helps me with my Son in New York and me in Iowa. I miss him every day (he's my only boy) but it helps having both of my daughters and grandchildren close). Holidays are the worst because there's a big hole in our celebration without him there. He's the type of personality that lights up the room as soon as he enters it. He very loving and funny; keeps us all in stitches. Very hard having him so far away, so I understand your pain. Hang in there. Maybe you can get some good deals on travel flights and go see them soon. All the best wishes for you.

I'm so sorry you're feeling that way. It is hard when you're family is so far away though. I have 2 boys at home, but the rest of my family is all far away and I don't get to see them all that often. We do talk on the phone quite often though. Do you get to talk to your boys often? What about a web cam where you can get to see and talk to each other?
