in twenty short years I've gone from rags to riches

I've had intermittent bouts of weepiness and wibbling today, none of which have anything to do with my blasted car that is currently in the shop waiting for the mechanic to tell me I need a new alternator, or the hour I had to wait for AAA to come with the tow truck.

Why all this wibbling, then? *takes deep breath* My oldest son, my second child, is getting married. I'm so, so happy for him and his lovely fiancee. But I think I'm kind of mourning the little boy he was and the young mother I was, such a short time, such a long time ago.

Damn, but I want a Time-Turner. Just for a day or two. Please? I'll give you chocolate for just a few more tuck-ins, a few more renditions of The Motorcycle Song to a sleepy six-year-old boy. A couple more drinks of water, a few more stories read. Fair trade?

Godsdamn midlife crisis. I hate it.

In other news, I'm going to see Mr. Dave Matthews and his band with blondie1026 and kissed_a_drunk tomorrow. Tailgate party with me daughter and me niece. Fun times! :D :D

Oh, and here:
