My daughter called from her new dorm room on the Colorado State University campus! She was all alone and feeling rather lonely, as she unpacked her boxes and tubs and waited for her dad and brother to return from a hike. She was a bit weepy, which is VERY unusual for this girl! When she tears up, I know something is really bothering her. I had one of those "mom-moments" where I almost said, "I'll buy a plane ticket tonight and be right out to see you!" However, reality. I cannot afford a ticket. I've got a trip planned during early October, where I'll spend 5 days with her during Parents' Weekend. That trip cost over $1000, as I really needed to rent a car to drive from Denver to Ft. Collins.
I miss her so much.
Can you believe it?
3 weeks ago, I was ready to throw her out...literally.
Now, I see she is back to being herself and loves her mom again.
I'm very happy and very proud.
I ventured out into an area I'd never really explored in order to place a new, classic geocache. It's called "Axiom-Stretcher." Heh, heh. I can't wait for someone to find it!
