IMG_3668.JPGStarting again to clip.  Trying to be smart. One paper.  Items we use or can try.  Not running to four stores to save a dollar.

I miss her!

IMG_3445Last weekend we spent time with family.  They had a send-off care package for her. We strolled the zoo a couple of hours together.  My dad shared his tidbits of wisdom with her.  They leave for the south this week.  Future unknown.

titanic.  Overwhelming.  Barely adrift.  Musicians making the most of their time together.  The fear, the acceptance, the hope!  She’s packing this week.  Frantically trying to visit each person before the car heads south.  Future…have to wait and see…

IMG_3292.JPGAs soon as the calendar page flipped, I was overwhelmed by emotion.  This is happening.  My baby is going to fly.  Spur of the moment runs to the mall, late night Starbucks, racing to get our red box movies back on time, all those little things that we share are going to be replaced by her new friends and new plans.  Cue tissues!!!

Time flies

I am feeling very melancholy today.  We had a wonderful time on vacation.  We’ve had a challenging weekend with flooding and water in our lower level.  As I watched many treasured memory items get carted out, and flipped through a few of the rescued photos, I was reminded how much life and love our family shares.

In just two short weeks, our baby bird flies the coop.  She is excited and nervous all at once.  I want her to go, grow, and of course, achieve more than I ever did.  It is so bittersweet.  I will miss her so much!!!  I can’t imagine what it is going to feel like.  The empty bedroom, no arguing with her sibling, the quiet ( less laughter-no radio blaring-no friends sleeping over)…sigh.

I wonder if we can feel ready to launch our children?

It’s been a simply fantastic week!  Looking forward to a few more days of having my toes in the sand!
