Climbing the walls

I am climbing the walls waiting until it is time to go retrieve Grace from Girl Scout Camp.  I have serious empty nest issues.  The clock is ticking until she leaves for college, yes, I realize she’s only going into 4th grade….but I said they were SERIOUS issues. 😀

I think about how other people deal with this.  I’ve got one friend whose daughter is getting married – MARRIED – next March. What???? When did these kids grow up? I just got the invitation to her engagement party…

Breathe…

Okay – I think I did pretty well with Christina moving to Austin.  Correct me if I am wrong, Christina? I cried – anyone who knows me knows THAT was going to happen.  But I didn’t hover….or wait, maybe I didn’t hover enough? Christina is my street-smart kid…she can read a situation quickly and can handle almost anything.  She’s not someone you want to make mad…she’s fierce.

Kelly went to college – I felt a little more secure, her being in a town surrounded by literally NOTHING…until I realized it was the on campus threat that was at issue. BOYs…and I don’t know who was more of a threat, the boys to Kelly or Kelly to the boys..she works with horses and will kick some @@s if necessary…and has.

Grace – off at camp – being all McGyver ‘n stuff….the logic of the situation is always assessed with this one.  She’s no Spock, but she is quite the Denny Crane when it comes to arguing her point…she will bring it to mad cow disease if she runs out of material.  If all else fails, my little Grace will resort to MuShu (Psych’s version of Jujitsu)…I watch too much TV…

Okay, well this took up 10 minutes…let’s see an hour until I leave….

Back to work.
