Ready or not

This whole school year has blown by in about three seconds. While I think to myself, “Wow, this year is just ZOOMING by!” about 428 times a day, I must’ve randomly ALSO thought, “Wow, I haven’t been sick in a long time!” at some point last week, thereby jinxing myself. We had some family visiting for the weekend and I woke up sick on Friday but rallied for their arrival and dinner that night. By the next morning, though, it was clear that I wasn’t going to be able to shake it off. I ended up having a cup of coffee and going back to bed, where I pretty much stayed until yesterday. So that was… not fun. (How sick was I? I was so sick, I sent leftovers to Nerd Night. Blasphemy, right?)

Yesterday I ran a couple of errands and came home and slept for two hours, after. Today I’m shaky but basically upright. Progress! And then I sat down with our big kitchen calendar to fill out the month of May and there’s so much STUFF I am overwhelmed and thinking bed was a much easier place to be, endless hacking cough and all. There’s so much happening and so much changing and I’m not ready. Then again, most of those big changes aren’t about me. Over at Alpha Mom I’ve got a few thoughts about my kid’s upcoming college adventure, only it’s not about the kid you already knew was going to college.

    Wow. Just…So Much Awesome. I should be better with words than that, but you’ll know what I mean.

    Congrats to Monkey! That’s a big deal.

    I’ve been reading your blog since they were so little and now they’re going off to college! You must be so proud…

    It’s sort of, almost, but not quite, the equivalent of the 2 year old saying “I do it!” The 2 year old version, however, doesn’t have quite the heart wrenching effect.
