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.
