as of 8:30 yesterday morning, my son is back in Hawaii .. Honolulu to be exact, to start his second year of college .. his dad hooked him up with a studio apartment overlooking the campus .. kid has got it tough i tell ya !!
honestly, i wasn't ready for him to leave yet ..
i'll confess, i'd probably never be "ready" .. just something about
waking up in the morning, seeing my son's clothes scattered around the
house .. the front door unlocked .. his shoes placed carefully waiting
for me to trip over them .. and my son, sleeping soundly on the couch ..
i'm missing him already the good news is i have my pickup truck back !!
been driving it for the entire summer and i'd been attempting to get by
driving his cadi (yea .. the one with the leaky radiator!)
over to his fathers house yesterday after work to exchange vehicles, i
just couldn't wait another day to have my truck back .. i feel so much
safer .. and bigger :)
i've missed being able to see OVER the
continual traffic jams .. of course i'll have to learn to park all over
again .. and struggle to find parking spaces that are long enough and
wide enough for both me and my truck to get into without doing any
permanent damage !!
i had promised his father i'd give him the
old "i'm concerned about your future so put down the surfboard and pick
up a book" mommy speech but there just wasn't time .. besides, i kinda
figure he has gotten enough of that speech .. the concerned daddy
version of course
i imagine the next few weeks before my daughter
starts the 8th grade will be filled with shopping .. and more shopping
.. and perhaps just a *bit* more shopping .. ya think?
to try to find the time to run by the humane society today and check on
Irish .. i know i could probably just call and find out, but i need to
see her eyes ..
on that note, i'm trying a little more background stuff .. hopefully it will work a bit better than yesterday :)
