Whenever Anna or DJ would come home for a long visit or break, we would be in gathering mode. I would pick up little things and food and store them in the closet until they could take them back with them. And then right before we would leave to take them back to college, we would head to the store for a big shopping extravaganza to load them up. Food(specifically, mac and cheese and anything else that can be cooked in the microwave. Really, they should have a microwave cooking course for college students. I mean if they can teach Klingon as a course, why not microwave cooking? I think that would be more useful. But then again if they did run into a Klingon, offering them anything other than gagh would be a dishonor. Oh and gagh is always served fresh. Just FYI.), shampoo, oh and Arnold Palmer Tea. So by the time that we get done we have quite a few bags of goodies. Have you ever tried to get a rolling cart at a college on the day that the kids return? Its more of a fight to the death sort of thing. And don't even try to get a parking place close. Just don't do it because even if you find a close spot, some D'bag is going to park behind you when you are unloading your kid and you will be stuck there.
Anywho, instead of fighting with your kid and trying to carry everything
Walk into their room, unzip the luggage, dump their crap on the bed and then
Sometimes, I look back at my posts and think, "how the hell did that find its way in there?" I often think that about my life too.
