alone

If a grin could be heard, you'd definitely hear mine right about now.


I had the most fabulous day with Brenden doin' the college-tour thing.


Love, love, love this school. Love it.


He's there for the evening,

participating in various student activities and spending the night

in a dorm.


Me?


Thanks for asking.


I am in a hotel room ALL by myself

(that's where my loud grin comes in).


I can't decide what I like best about this scenario...


the remote all to myself?

a king-size bed all for little ol' me?

my unlimited computer time?

the magazine I plan to read later, uninterrupted?

the fact that I ate dinner in bed?


Oh, it's ALL of those things.


But truly, I miss my family terribly. Terribly!


I will try to endure this with bravery though.




Oh, oh.

But I must tell you about the texting conversation I had with Nick (back home) this morning.


I was checking in with him because he was supposed to pick Macy up from

her second day of math class.



Me: "Did you get Macy from school OK? DON'T answer if you are driving."


Nick: "Ya, I guess.

And I'm totally driving with my feet and texting at the same time, Mom."


Me: "You give me gray hair, kid!!"


Nick: "No, I'm pretty sure that's because you're old."


Me: "Christmas is just around the corner, smarty pants!"


Nick: "I'm sorry, Mommy! I love you!"


Me: "Too late."


Heehee.


Anyway, I gotta go. I've got so much to do.



Grin.
