I am at a hotel in a college town 800 miles from my home. Tomorrow morning I say goodbye to my second baby and we will just start driving. After all we’ve been through this year it’s hard to believe I will hug her in a parking lot and voluntarily just drive away. It’s so much harder now that I know what it will be like, how contracted our family circle will seem when we get home, how much quieter our afternoons and evenings will be.
This means I did a good job. This means we have successfully raised a capable child (and believe me this one is more than capable). This means a lot of GOOD things. It just doesn’t feel good.
Last year when I was feeling down about being in my boot cast and grounded from running and my aerobics class I joined a fat-book swap. It was a lot of fun and gave me a project to perk me up a little. So when I ran across Karla Nathan’s Dorothy Tag Swap I thought it would be just the thing to help pass the next month.
It’s only six tags, and with a Wizard of Oz theme the possibilities are endless! As far as I know the swap is still open. Click on the button in my sidebar if you are interested.
Well, wish me luck tomorrow.
