The biggest news from Chez Swine is that D#2 is off on her college adventure. I am both sad and thrilled. You can see in two of the pictures how packed the car was and also that she forgot her ‘blankey’ and had to run back into the house for it!
We moved her in on Saturday — everything went smoothly except for my uterus deciding to have a peri-menopausal tsunami of a period … is that tmi? Shall we pause for an Oprah moment and discuss the body/soul connection and how isn’t it ironic that as my nest empties so does my girly parts? and then shall we hug and look under our seats to find fabulous prizes??
Okay, back to the story. D#2 has a good size room and her roommate seems really nice. She started class on Monday. Her school has an extensive freshman course (3 weeks) so that is why they start so early. It is a literature and writing class and it is right up her alley. With the exception of one weepy moment, all reports from her have been great.
When we got back from that trip it was a quick clean the house and then my company arrived!!! YAY for girlfriends providing diversions! I got to meet two of Vicki’s daughters – and it’s absolutely true, they are wonderful so our Vicki must be doing something right. Cara and Meli were her too and that little Meli gets cuter everytime I see her. Unfortunately neither of them
- left a daughter behind for me and
- I took not a single picture.
We had a SnB on Monday night with Flair, Ricki, Peggy and Kathleen. We were so busy laughing that I am not sure if any knitting got done. Someday I will post a video of Flair doing her best Tom Carvel impression. The rest of the visit was spent relaxing with our knitting, watching the Olympics and gabbing. I happen to be a gabber of Olympic proportion.
