PD - she is 28 and we are going on her 4th year living in Spain. I have gotten used to the idea, and I love the area where she lives, it's safe and clean and actually the place where I was an exchange student over 40 years ago. She is happy, has a great man in her life and his family treats her like one of their own, and I have a few friends there in case of emergency, so that makes me feel better. And with the ability to text and to video-chat for free anytime, it is pretty easy to stay in touch. And she comes home for about 2 months every summer, so all in all, it's ok. But after having such a good time together this summer, neither one of us were ready for her to go back and it's always hard to say goodbye. Our dogs love having her home and they miss her too - the little one wouldn't eat breakfast this morning because he was missing her, I think. Anyway, thanks for listening, it's really ok, but harder at some times than others!
