I could have used those 8 arms!

This is kind of what I looked like over the past 48 hours. College move in day is always a bittersweet, hectic marathon. 

Pack. Unpack. Shop. Eat. Hydrate. Hug. Laugh. Run cable wire (jack is ALWAYS on the opposite side of the room from the TV). Call the internet guy. Track missing packages. Meet her friends. Lose the car keys (constantly, I am a space cadet). Eat room service. 

Spending the time alone with my daughter is such a treat it is well worth the insanity. Seriously, not only did she embrace pulling over to get this shot, but she took it! Oh how we love the Octopus Car Wash!

Thanks Jana, for being you! Hopefully you will find the missing internet guy and be able to read this!

  1. Sure does sound hectic! Seems you found the sweet (vs. bitter) parts and had some fun, too!

  2. Hope that her reentry goes smoothly. F’em Bucky and all that!


  3. Okay, I’m jealous. I admit it. My daughter just wanted dropped off with her stuff and they we could go now. I would have loved to spend some time with her. Aaaaah, but boyfriend was there too.

    Aaw, you reminded me of my first day at college. My mom was sooooo happy to just make up my bed and help put things in the room. It was a great day.
