Good question, one I ask myself from time to time. But this is just me, this is what I WANT to do, I want to be there for them.
DD#1 is in training right now for a job she starts in September and the hours are, get this, and I'm not exaggerating - 5 days a week, from 6 o'clock in the morning till 10 o'clock in the evening
. And she has some health issues and my husband is a contractor and I've dabbled in decorating, so all these things combined, well I just want to ease some of HER stress. And DD#2's apartment is right around the corner from me (a good thing) and we had her bridal shower here last week (ooh another stress factor) and since we're lucky enough to have the apt so early (we didn't have it for #1), I'd just like things to be nice for them.
I know I add some of this stress to myself, but that is me and this is the way I want it - I suppose (no, I do). I've mentioned many times, my daughters nearing marital age was one of the pushing factors for me to lose the weight for this very reason - the stress and the activity and *just being there for them*.
Although I new they were nearing
the age, I didn't realize it would be *this* near and so close to one another!!
