I definitely used this sketch - right down to the dotted (or starred) circles!!
I spent last week driving 845 miles to take my youngest son to college. I didn't think it would be as hard as it was to drop him off. I have so many interest and hobbies that I had no doubt that I'd fill my time. And I'm sure I will. But it's going to be terribly quiet with just my husband and I. My son laughed at me multiple times on the trip - stating that I'd spent 19 years trying to get rid of him and in the last week suddenly I was sad.
I am working on a stash of cards that I can send him when he needs a boost (or when I am thinking of him!) This one is all about his school colors.
I think I'll send it fairly soon because he has totally embraced the college life (although classes just started yesterday so we'll see!) He loves the gorgeous green campus and he knows his lacrosse teammates through months of social medial and he loves the dining hall. He loved forming the big "A" on the football field during welcome week and he loved the open air movie. It all fits him.
I'm happy for him. I just wish he weren't 845 miles away. It's a quick flight (I flew back) unless the plane is delayed 6 1/2 hours because it was struck by lightning and needed a part. The pilot actually thought it was OK to tell us that! My oldest son is only 90 miles away but he's already said he doesn't want to see me any more often than he already does.
I'm done whining. I don't have to cook dinner tonight. I can turn on the Hallmark channel or HGTV and no one will complain. I can play my music - loudly - and maybe even dance a little. Then a glass or two of wine and reading in bed. Sounds pretty good...for awhile.
