I won't waste time bemusing the time gone by since my last post. Obviously, life is busy and priorities haven't included 'blogging'. But I find myself with a laptop, some free time and a dire need to wax poetic today.
Alexa is 13 days away from moving to college. I don't know for sure who is more nervous as the day approaches, her or me? It's so difficult to tell since she gets quieter and I get more "organizational" so we are both doing much of what we tend to do when we get nervous. I have been the one making lists upon lists of things for her to take with her to college. I have created a sortable excel file list - sortable alphabetically, or by category. I like to think it's pretty darn thorough, too!
I saved this file here for those who may have a need to use such a list.
In other news, we just returned from a beautiful vacation to Florida, celebrating Alexa's graduation with a visit to Harry Potter world at Universal's Islands of Adventure. It was amazing. We followed the parks craziness with a few days in Sanibel Island which was a perfect way to rest and relax.
Came home to news that a dear friend had passed away. A quick means of eliminating the rest and relaxation and sending the anxiety levels through the roof!
Ah well, on the work of the day - continuing the process of preparing my 18 year old to move out into this world, and to set her up for success in college. Here's to the future - may hers be bright and filled with joy!!
Till later - could be months!
