Get Those Curtains Down, I’m Making Me A Dress

carol.jpgDays like today make me wonder how I will manage trying to take some classes, work full time and manage kids, house, etc. while Mr. Smiff is on the road a large portion of the time. 

I’ll think about that tomorrow.

Shoot Me

I’ve heard my cube neighbor tell, at least 5 times this morning on the phone, that her daughter is leaving for college this week. It wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t turn into a 15 minute soliliquy.  She needs to just hand me the phone and I’ll tell it. 

The best part was hearing her on the phone with her almost grown daughter saying “I meeeeesssssss yeeeeew.  I luuuuuuuuuuuuv yeeeew.”  Girl ain’t even gone yet. 

I’m a mother.  I understand the parent/child attachment.  I really do.  I just can’t bear to hear it in her squeaky twang any more. 

Help. It’s going to be a long few weeks as the girl adjusts.  I bet you the girl is TICKLED to get away.  I don’t know if her mama will survive it though.
