So, we dropped off youngest DD at college yesterday. She is over 4 hours away - not too bad in the scheme of things - but certainly farther away than any of the others were. I made a startling discovery today - I now am the only female in the household, living with three guys - aaagh!
I am just exhausted - due to all the emotional and physical stress around the wedding and then the college drop. It is a whole new phase of life, and even though I knew it was coming, I am not ready for it. I thought I might be energized by new-found freedom, but I am just very sad. It will be a struggle to get myself going - working out and tracking food again. If I could, I would love to take off by myself for a week - do nothing but read, pray, sleep, and recuperate. Instead I will be keeping the home fires burning (such as they are) while DH is traveling for work and will also be dealing with everything (church, Tres Dias, Kairos, work) gearing up for the fall. Makes me more tired just thinking about it!
