The Car Just Left...

So Nick did not leave yesterday for his mountain trip. It was delayed a day. Sure, I did my part and cooked like an old world Nana all day Sunday and we feasted on Italian food until we bursted and then...nothing. Okay, fine. This gave me an extra day to have my boy around.

Except he went out all day.

Sigh.

I did make him go to the graduation meeting and that went very well. The gal who I was worried about was very nice, very cooperative but there was someone else who I SO did not expect a problem from who really just bordered on being nasty with all of her comments. I was a little taken aback by her. But it's okay, I knew it all wouldn't be smooth and easy and I'm looking forward to enforcing the guidelines. Does that sound mean?

Anyway, the delay of Nick's leaving changed some things. If they had left yesterday, they were leaving around 8:30 in the morning. A normal, respectable time. Well, today they decided to get on the road at 6:30 a.m. NOT a good or normal OR respectable time. Frank and I got up with him and watched him get on his way and I have to admit, my heart hurts a little. He left here with instructions to call me when he arrived and to call me at least a couple of times during the week to let me know he's okay. He gave me the typical "Okay, mom" and out the door he went.

And then he came back...just to give me a hug and to tell me he loves me.

Maybe we did do something right after all...

Awww... I'm so glad he came back and gave you a hug. There is a little life and love in that teenage heart. It does show up when you least expect it, huh? Now treat yourself to something wonderful for being such a great mom. Plus it'll distract you from thinking about what he's doing every second! :)
