I'm more excited about the boy's college graduation and the girls 3 weeks at home more than the actual holiday. If I ever was a scrooge before, I am certainly feeling it now.
I just paid college tuition for the last time... for my daughter... for the school she is in. We are waiting to hear from my son's college re his grad school application, so there's money.... and girl wants grad school eventually, and I'm sure that's gonna cost us something... sooo...
Anyway, I can't wait for my daughter to get home so we can hang out and sew stuff and have inappropriate conversations... cuz that's what we do. She's just growing up so fast that I find it both depressing and exciting. She even had her first doctors appointment without me this week... she felt like garbage and did not ask me to drive 2 hours each way to accompany her to the doctor. If course I had to reimburse her for the copay (yikes) and the prescription (double yikes) but she was well enough for her voice jury today, with her voice being as clear as a bell... just a few days ago she sounded like a sick frog.
I probably shouldn't talk about her so much... one of these days she's gonna come for me... and it aint gonna be pretty.
So signing off for now until I have something proper to complain about.
