Back to school

Torrential life.

You guys, Typepad just made me sign into my account, that's how long I've been gone. I hate that.

But then again, I hate everything tonight, because I just got home from a trip to take Tre to orientation at a new university, which happens to be my alma matter (which he didn't realize when he became enamored with it), and if there is anything that will give you All The Feels, it is seeing the campus your baby will be leaving you for. On top of that, because this is his College Experience 2.0, I'm holding all this hope in my heart for him. And also, there I was, on the campus I haven't seen for 23 years, remembering those days and thinking about how I'm going back to school in the Fall to finish that same damn degree, and what happened, exactly? And I got to spend the day with my college roommate (who is my sister, for reals), because she's an instructor there. 

All The Feels.

And then I got to spend a million years in the car with Tre, coming home. And we got caught in a torrential rainstorm and it was scary. And I barely made it home in time for bedtime shennanigans, which made Sophia extra squirrely. And we have an extra cat in the house, and Melody, our in-house cat doesn't like him, and one of them is peeing on clothes that are left on the floor, which I am SO DONE WITH.

All of which is to say I just hit the wall, emotionally, and cried at Clay. While I was ordering a pair of glasses online to replace the ones Max lost at his friend's house. 

Life is torrential, and I am just barely afloat tonight.



Barely afloat? You my friend, have been at the bottom of the deep and yet still made it back up for air. I have no doubt that this time will be any different, I just wish it were easier for you!

Thanks for cluing me in to how you always magically reappear before the 30 day mark where I'm required to file a virtual missing persons report of your absence. And here I thought it was just that I had left a comment today on your last post hoping to draw you out of the dark lol I'm writing typepad to request they make you check in more frequently as we miss your wonderful words!

Took my oldest to orientation last weekend & as we walked up the hill toward the student building i remarked what an excellent choice he'd made as this campus is just beautiful. At which point he reminded me that this college would have been MY alma mater had I not met his father and stayed put to marry him a few years later. and he logically followed that up with the fact tat HE wouldn't be here if I hadn't given up that dream all those years ago. Wise child in such a young body!

All the feels indeed.

Can't wait to hear about your own college experience 2.0!


Hugs my dear! I'm cheering for both you and Trey to have amazing 2.0 experiences. :)

My sympathies on everything. As someone who has far too much experience with a cat who pees on all the things (hey, at least the offspring and spouse stopped leaving stuff on the floor), I recommend Petastic. It is the only thing I've found that gets the smell out.

And please get the cats checked for a UTI. While my cat has a behavioral issue, most of the time cats think outside the box it is a UTI that is easily treated. Good luck!
