Sunday my youngest goes back to college. My oldest went back last weekend. My oldest goes to college 5hrs away. We took her back in one trip so 10hrs total and a long day!
My youngest goes to college 1.5hrs away. We will be following her to college due to she’s taking a mini fridge and it doesn’t fit in her car. Much easier travel day.
I absolutely love having my girls here. They enjoy spending time with me and frequently ask me to do things with them. ( All of this brought to you by not daily drinking! ) Yesterday after work my youngest and I went to a place that buys your clothes ( if they will resell ) and she thought she would get $30-$40 and she got $79! Then we went to a thrift store, I got her Taco Bell and then home. We laughed a lot, such a nice time.
That put us home around 6pm. I made a quick dinner for my hubby and I and then picking up from diner and doing whatever needs to be done for the next day. I get up at 4:30am so I don’t stay up late.
This is how my days have been going for about a month now. I’m so thankful for my time with them but also looking forward to coming home with no agenda and coffee and a book. I feel a little guilty about that as other moms are still so sad as their kids go back to school. For me, since they are happy at college, I am happy. With cell phones and texting they keep in touch well.
So I guess I write this as I seem to be in the minority with looking forward to me time. When the house is empty again I will likely miss the go go days. These are just thoughts that are going through my head at the moment.
Thanks for reading, XO Jackie
I completely get it, Jackie. ❤️
When I wrote this I thought to myself that I bet Dwight could relate. ❤️
Not only you Jackie. I think it’s actually really healthy to enjoy your children becoming more independent and to be excited and happy for them. It’s also positive to enjoy the future of having more time to yourself as a couple and alone time. Just goes to show what a well rounded and content individual you are! 💕💕💕
I couldn’t agree more! We love when they are here yet it’s also nice to have that couple time. Thanks so much for the last part. I sure hope your doing well and it’s always so awesome to hear from ya! 😘😘😘
Great post, Jackie. I am sure many of us can relate. 💞🌞.
Thanks Anne! 😃
