Saturday night I had a farewell party for my daughter, Erika. She's 22 years old and is off to San Antonio to volunteer for a year working with inner city kids!
This will be the longest she will be away from home and her first apartment!
She has done other volunteering, she went to shur Lanka for a month to work in an orphanage and afganistan to teach skateboarding for two months and several small ones here in DC.
At the party I took a pic of each person and had them write something inspirational in a journal where I placed their pic! She loved it! I asked to write something in it daily!
So Sunday I cleaned out my cabinets of all the junk, plus a loaf of bread and a jar of peanut butter to get her started.
No junk in the house now!
I'm trying my best,her leaving, not to let it get to me!
I will miss her terribly! But at least this time she's in America! Road trip!
