SO we are in day 2 of packing and the middle one is still managing very capably. She is working out what clothes to pack so that is going to be interesting. She has everything in her closet organized to within an inch of its life, so it won’t be hard to work out.
We’ve started the youngest one on a new book series called Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy–classic scifi. She’s got it because she was complaining she needed a new music player and I told her she could earn one by reading more books. She likes Doctor Who, so I thought she would enjoy the comedy of Hitchhiker’s Guide. SO far she has not fussed about not liking it, so I hope she is finding it interesting.
I’m still holding up well so I am glad of that. It helps that we’ve done this before and that she is taking most of the responsibility of doing this. Keeps me out of it and where I can concentrate on doing what can I do.
Time to go over to the other blog and post there. Hope everyone has a great Fourth of July weekend!
My middle one is packing to go. She says she doesn’t want help, so I am staying out of her way until asked. I am very lethargic today and not sure why. I stayed in the bed until late and am now having a slow start to doing anything useful.
I hope I am not all of a sudden getting depressed about her leaving. That would be bad. But it’s entirely possible.
We go out to lunch today with my friend Mary Jane and I should be looking forward to that, but I’m just kind of bleh. Maybe it’s just that I haven’t had caffeine yet. I may go for a walk to the corner store and get a coke.
Tomorrow I get to clean up some of the left overs from them rearranging their rooms–I’ve got Candy and Christy coming to help me haul boxes around. And we may go to lunch too. So we will see.
I need to determine that this is going to be a good day no matter what I feel inside. I owe that to them today.

TOday is laundry day so that will be fun. And my middle one starts packing for college supposedly today. I feel pretty good about that so far. I hope I can hold it together for her. But she’s ready–been ready for a while. So I think it will all go well.
Very sleepy this morning. Not sure what that’s about. Took my medicine so hopefully that will start to ease off. I’m going to lunch with Mary Jane tomorrow. I need more human interaction than I’m getting lately. So that will be fun.
Hope everyone has a good rest of the week.
I blew an appointment today–I had a time to get my hair cut and colored and forgot about it. SO I had to run out and do that in a hurry, But it’s done and I don’t have to worry about it again until August 1.
I feel like I could sleep all day. I dreamed that I was working as an assistant in a elementary school classroom and I woke up exhausted like I really had spent a day at work.
It feels like a long day already, I really do want to go to sleep.. I don’t have a lot I have to do today so I just might take a nap after lunch., Depends on what is going on.
I’ve sent out some more stuff yesterday so we will see how it turns out. I think I have 20 pieces circulating as of right now. Hopefully something will hit he wall and stick 🙂
Hope everyone is having a good start to their week. I appreciate all my readers and look forward to seeing more of you as time goes by. Have a good day.
Bob and I celebrated our anniversary a little early–taking advantage of our youngest being gone to go out to dinner at Shapley’s, a fancy steakhouse here in the Ridgeland area. Today’s the actual day–we’ve been married 24 years today. We’ve started trying to plan what we want to do on our 25th–we usually take a trip somewhere by ourselves every five years around it. But we will see what happens then.
Other than than that we had a slow weekend. The middle one went to the local COmicCon and brought me back a Charlie Brown book–a collection of all the prose writing of Charles Schulz. It’s a decent looking sized book and should keep me occupied during DTU while the youngest is dancing.
I’ve figured out what is bothering me so much about my thesis thus far. I haven’t included anything yet about being saved, so it’s all depressing. No one wants to read something with no redemption, but I’m scared no one wants to read about my redemption–particularly my thesis committee–an atheist, a gay Jew-ish man, and a writer who I know is a liberal politically. I’m praying about it, but all I know to do it fit it in chronologically and see what they say.
So my tooth turned out to be one of the few that wasn’t already crowned, so they drilled out the filling and the cavity that had developed around it and put a crown on it. I have to go back in two weeks and get the permanent one put on. $800 for my portion after insurance. Bleah. And then it ached last night. I took a hopped-up ibuprofen for it and slept really soundly. SO that helped. Now I’m looking at laundry and all such as that today.
My middle one is having friends over for a final get-together before they scatter for college. Of course its here as all of their parties have been ever since they started playing D&D. They’re going to play around a bit today and spend the night here, then go to ComicCon tomorrow. Bob and I are going to pop in to ComicCon and see what it is like. We’ve never been to one. SO we will see.
I really want to go back to bed. I am sleepy. But there’s too much to do, so we will see how much of it gets one once I get moving. Hopefully all of it. We will see. My mood seems to be pretty good; it’s just my motivation needs some kickstart.
So I go to the dentist today for a cleaning and to have them look at my back tooth. Fun fun fun.
I feel so bummed out. I think it is finally settling into my soul that my middle one will leave for college in less than two weeks. I know I will miss her. I’ve been trying to avoid that fact but I will. And I’m anxious about how my relationship with my youngest will change. I don’t really know what to do with her. I’ll have a month with her before school starts and I’m at a bit of a loss what all to do.
I’m also a little freaked out about this tropical storm headed for us, I don’t want to start flashbacking to Katrina or anything weird like that. I’m trying to keep a handle on my anxiety about it but am not sure what I will do if we lose power or have a spinoff tornado or something like that.
Just pray for me and my family as we move through the next few weeks and see how things go. I know I will need them.
