Slight Turbulence

Bring it on, bring it on, bring it on. From here to the eyes and the ears of the 'verse, that's my motto. Or at least it would be, if I start having a motto.

An Interesting Observation: It’s So Quiet

Leave a comment

The house is quiet. We seem to be moving around slowly — well, calmly might be a better word. I don’t know, things just seem more slow-paced. Could it be just because KidC is gone away to college? Odd. I just can’t comprehend how one person seems to have changed the pace of our entire family dynamic.

It’s possible I’m imagining it.

The girls are now only two sharing a bathroom instead of three. There are only four place settings at the table for dinner now. We rode in the smaller car to get to the mall. Goodness, that KidC really was a big part of our lives. (Well, he still is around… KidI, who has moved into his room, just asked when she could move the rest of his clothes out of “her” closet.)

And Now We Are Four

Leave a comment

It’s been just about one week since we dropped KidC off at college.

I can say that now, with just a little heartache, and if I don’t dwell on the memories, without tears welling up in my eyes. Tomorrow will be Sunday. I last heard his voice Thursday morning when he called to coordinate banking information to set up his tuition payments. They told us at the 2-day Parent Orientation (PO) our communication would probably be relegated to fiscal issues – “send money mom!” The reality was KidC called to confirm his account and routing number so he could make some payments for books and supplies out of his savings account – he didn’t really even want my money!

He is supposed to call tomorrow. That’s our agreed on day to make contact. I’m told that I should be encourage that he doesn’t have time to call. It means he’s making friends, doing things, going places. Okay. I guess. In the meantime, KidA got a plea to keep me in the loop when she leave for college in two year.
