It's been a while since I've blogged. I have been so busy it's hard to just keep up with myself.
Yesterday I came home from orientation at the University of Delaware. My daughter will be attending there starting next month. How did that happen? She was just toddling around the house giving me instructions a week ago, wasn't she?
It was very difficult for me I hate to admit. They immediately separated the parents from the kids and we had an entire days worth of information and such. There were times it took every ounce of strength not to burst into tears. This is going to be hard. My child has grown up and is leaving me. Honestly, it's shocking.
My beautiful daughter was amazing. She went off and selected her courses, met with advisers and did everything she needed to do. I could tell she was a little nervous but all in all, just fine (way better than her mom, but she didn't know that!)
Time goes by so fast. I feel like my son just left for camp and tomorrow is visiting day! How can we slow this stuff down????
On a little sadder note, I gained some weight. With all that has been going on in my life I wasn't paying attention and now I'm paying the price. 12 pounds of price. I'm taking action. I've been back on track and have already lost 3 of them. If I stay the course I will be back in the 120's by the first visiting day at college.
This isn't easy all around but as they say, this too shall pass. Life goes on and I'm trying to march along with it. I am posting some new pics from my son's Bar Mitzvah. Please, take a look!
Enjoy your summer!
