This has been an emotional week.

I got back Tuesday from visiting my 94 year old grandmother 1000 miles west of here. I don't know if I will see her alive again or if my next trip west will be to her funeral.

Today, I take my oldest daughter to University. I'm launching my baby out into the world where she will either sink or swim. But I have confidence in her. She's wise, strong, and beautiful and can take care of herself. She'll do fine. I'm just really going to miss her being around the house.

Sweet! She'll do fine.

Thanks. :)

I can understand missing her, but you are entering a new phrase in life. It should be interesting! I'm a few years behind you!

I like my space.
I also like my kids.
It's kind of a dilemma.
Lots of mixed emotions.
