It's the first weekend in September.
Our son is moving to Oregon on Thursday.
His wife and the three Grandlittle girls are staying in Arizona for now until he's sure he'll stay in Oregon instead of being transferred out.
I'm not talking about the Grandlittles moving.
Since our son is going to be 'batcheloring' it AND he's driving up, my Mom helped me figure out how to send some home-cooked love along with him to stock his freezer.
Awaiting the trip are packages of Swiss Chicken Casserole, Chicken and Pork Chili Verde stew, hot sausage with peppers and onions, home made meatballs and spaghetti sauce
Also in my freezer are: Oatmeal Cream pies, peanut butter cookies, oatmeal cherry-raisin cookies, triple chocolate brownies and butterscotch chocolate cookies.
It is very hard to resist my freezer right now.
The oatmeal cream pies are afraid to go to Oregon. They really, really want to stay right here...close to my mouth.
I'm telling them they have to leave, but they aren't taking it well.
Perhaps I should comfort one of them.
Hold it gently in my hand...
put it gently in my mouth.
But I will resist.
Because that's what a labor of love is for on Labor Day weekend.
Hope your three day weekend was filled with sweetness...
...and possibly a homemade oatmeal cream pie cookie!
