She hasn’t graced us with her presence much this semester.
But she came home TWICE last week.
First to show us her new car.
Then to show us her black eye. From that lovely sport of rugby.
Really she just came home to get the stereo out of her other car that we’ve been storing on the driveway since August when she was told it needed a new engine.
Luckily I found Scary Baby before they left. Seems she thought she might like to go back to college with them and skip 6th grade.
She surprised us a little when she said she was coming home Friday to spend the weekend. She told us this on Friday about an hour before she started driving home.
While at home, she repeated several times “I don’t live here anymore.”
That was in response to being asked to walk her dog or make her bed.
She’s still my precious daughter.
She went to lunch with her brother.
She went to a movie on Friday night with her daddy.
She took Scary Baby shopping on Saturday morning.
She went to a movie with me on Saturday night.
She had brunch with us on Sunday and then headed back to school.
Our table was almost full but we had one empty seat at the island.
We missed having Wizzy home.
No worries, Granny arrives tonight from Texas to spend Thanksgiving with us. And next week the darling twins come home on Tuesday night so we will all be together for almost 5 whole days.
One more note about Soldiers…
In case you might have missed this comment, I thought it was a great time to put it out here in case you have room at your table for an extra guest or two at Thanksgiving.
Julieann is right – what a great random act of kindness to reach out and open your home to a soldier who can’t be with his own family at the holidays.
Please let us hear if you extend an invitation!
