We all survived the first day of college….whew! I dropped the girl off at 7:30…well not really. We made it down to the university at 7:25am. My plan was to drop her off at this great coffee place I know and then she could head down to the library. When I pulled up there was a group of older men, my guess is teachers, who were sitting on the front porch. I knew in that moment…I was going to be late for work. I took her in and bought us both a cup of coffee. She headed to the library and I headed back to work. What genius decides to start a major project downtown the week before the university starts up again? Some man, I’m sure. What a cluster ****! There’s a big concert down there tonight, I can’t even imagine how bad that back up will be.
The boy had his first class later that morning. He goes whichever way his Google maps tells him to go. I’m not comfortable with that, especially since it hasn’t taken him the same way twice. He’s too young to know which area is bad yet and that gives me anxiety. Thankfully we all survived the day. There will definitely be a period of adjustment to this new college thing.
Last night my little buddy was over to watch Outlander and she even brought us dinner. It was “the black jack episodes”. I swear to you now that I will never watch those episodes again. It was hard enough the first time and last night was still no better. I tried to distract myself by folding book pages but it wasn’t enough to stop me from wanting to vomit. She had to watch them, it’s a crucial part of the book as well as the show….it sure did suck. Next time I re watch this show with someone….they can take Wentworth Prison and To Ransom a Man’s Soul home and be traumatized alone. It’s so hard to watch …..did I mention the wanting to vomit?
I think I might invest in some of those round cardboard cake thingys to keep the pumpkins on. The are difficult to move from point a to point b and I am hoping that will make it easier.
I am planning to experiment with a new mason jar project tonight or tomorrow. If all goes well this will be project all of the girls get in the family. Boys get Limoncello…..girls get projects. It’s all handmade and usually I get positive feedback.
I can’t even believe that tomorrow is Friday. Where does the time go? ….Zia
