It’s been several WEEKS since my last update.
Well, Eldest heads back to college Wednesday morning. We leave at 5am. Oy. Luckily, it’s within 3.5-4 hrs of our home in New Jersey. She (we) have been packing for what seems like days on end. She’s going back with a ton of food – including a few baggies of frozen homemade Mama meals. I hope she has a chill roommate. At least she only has one roommate this year. Last year, it was a triple room situation and it was TIGHT in there.
So, Youngest has been slacking a bit on her summer reading. I feel like I am all over her ass, nagging her to get her assignments completed and out of the way. I am so proud of all she’s done… she is taking on some extra classes this year. I hope she isn’t overloaded.
I worry … Lordy, all I seem to DO is worry. And nag… and fuss… Ugh! I’ve got to change. Maybe lower some expectations that I have heaped up on myself.
I need to read this every day. I hope I do become the Mom I want them to remember.
