I can’t believe the day is here. The day that I take my only child to college, seven hours away. While I’ve been crying at the drop of a hat for the past several weeks, part of me is relieved that the time has come. For several months, my house has been an absolute disaster with extra furniture, boxes and household items everywhere. So, I guess I will cry the seven hours back and then try to enjoy the serenity of home. I suspect that even being allowed to set up my cutting tables in his room won’t make me smile for at least a week or two. My best friend’s husband suggested that I get another cat and name him Jess. Naturally, my son thinks that is a crazy idea. Yeah, well, that has my name all over it.
