Another one launched

Well, it’s official – Meredith is at college.

BH and I drove down to Mer’s dad’s & stepmom’s house on Friday. We had a great family evening and a yummy breakfast the next morning. (Yay for blueberry pancakes!) Then we packed up a couple cars, and headed for Lancaster. It didn’t take long to get everything in her room. She’s a pretty organized kid. So we had plenty of time to walk around campus and spend a fortune in the gift shop.

So, yeah, she’s flown the nest. But I am not freaking out. I think I got that all out of my system when she graduated. That was all about good-byes. Taking her to college was all about hellos to new people and experiences. I know she’s going to do great and have a blast, so I’m not sad.

As we left Lancaster for the long drive home, we swung by Bethlehem to see Steph for a couple hours. We would have stopped at J’s college, too, but she was working. Got home way too late, but it was worth it.

Oh, and I brought Wawa coffee home (ground coffee, not in a cup). And I hate, hate, hate Rt. 222 between Lancaster and Allentown. Ack.

Note to Max and couple other people who asked about this: Yes, I am going to put some draft pages of various novels on the website. But I don’t see how it’s going to happen before November.

Now I have to write, write, write, write, write, write….. you get my drift.

*thinking about the hurricane, praying for safety*

added later: pardon this small technical procedure: Technorati Profile

  1. Now I have to write, write, write, write, write, write….. you get my drift.

    Write on, Laurie! 🙂

    Congrats to M. on embarking on college life. Ah, those were the days! 🙂

    And question – from what time to what time does SPEAK run on Lifetime? I must set my VCR before I leave for China! I have Sept 5, 9 PM written down. What time does it end? (I would hate to cut off the ending!)

    Thanks!

      Ooooh… good question. Showtime is running the movie without channels. Lifetime is running it with, so the Lifetime version will take longer. I can’t find anywhere that says how long the movie is. Can anyone else help with this question?
