I just left my child in Ohio for her Junior year at college. Junior year people!
How did that happen? HOW THE HELL DID THAT HAPPEN?
I seem to feel even sadder this year than previously as it's now obvious that she doesn't really need me there except as The Wallet and The Chauffeur, roles at which i excel.
I didn't say she doesn't WANT me there, but really, she could do just as well without me. It seems i go for myself.
I was a very 5th wheel at a dinner with Em and one of her friends last night. It was Em's dinner # 1 as she had another dinner scheduled later in the evening. I think this was the consolation dinner.
Ohio provided the usual entertainments, tent caterpillars, massive amounts of road kill.
Current two day count;
1 Canada Goose
1 unidentified greasy spot on road with fur.
Oh, and there was corn too. Plus lots of beautiful old barns that tempted me to stop and take pictures.
Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be......college students.
