Lots of catching up to do today. The weekend went well. Joe is settled into his dorm room at the University of Puget Sound. We spent Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning making several trips to Target, buying books (ouch) and exploring the campus and a little bit of the surrounding area. Saying good-bye was bitter sweet, as I knew it would be. But it's only two months until spring break, so I'll take it a day at a time. One of the highlights of my trip was meeting Kim of Mom-Musings at the SeaTac airport before my flight home! She is just as sweet as I knew she would be and we had so much in common. It was so good to end my visit talking to a mom whose been through (twice) what I'm going through. I always thought I would love to have Kim as a neighbor over my back yard fence and now I know for sure that I would. Over our Starbucks coffees, we talked non-stop, the time went way too fast and she had me in stitches with some of her stories. She was so good for my soul and I boarded the plane feeling more confident about sending my son off to college and so happy to have made a new friend. I didn't get to post my photo of the week before I left, so here it is. It was taken on Saturday, and is the culmination of all the activity and my feelings from last week.
