I CAN do this . . .

The car is packed. Dan is so excited.  I’m feeling excitement for Dan alternating with feeling weepy for me.  My first baby – my test case – is leaving.  Sure, he’ll come home, but it’s never going to be the same.  We’re planning to leave here around 4:30 or 5:00 am.  Yes, I am going to bed.  I’ll be back tomorrow night.  Wish me luck in not making a scene in front of Dan’s new roommates.  How is this possible?  Aside from that crick in my neck, I don’t feel any older than I did when Dan was born.  And now he’s leaving …  I figure if I can contain myself while I get him unpacked (and make his bed for the first and last time), I can be weepy for the whole drive home, right?  By the time I get back here (4-5 hours), I should have it all out of my system.

  1. Tell him it could be worse. My parents got FSU season football tickets when I went there and every home game my parents saw me after the game or the next morning (and took me out to eat) and my mom cried when she left. What is that…dropping off in August plus 5 home games plus Thanksgiving, Christmas, January drop off, Spring Break…that is 10 crying scenes at least per year!
