In which she came home … already


So this is a little amusing; not incredibly but a little (at least in my opinion.)


As you know, or you would if you had read yesterdays post, Andie left on Friday to go down to Duke for Med school.  Orientation actually started on Monday but there was a camping trip on Saturday through Sunday.


Andie went down for the trip and yeah, she met some people, but the trip was actually done Sunday morning (although she did manage to leave Saturday night to sleep in her own bed).


I talked to her on Sunday and it was a gorgeous day here.


Me:                  so were the people nice?

Andie:             yeah, they were although I hate all those “ice breakers”

Me:                  so what are you doing today?

Andie:             no plans

Me:                  we’re by the pool.  Why don’t you go down to the pool? (in her apartment complex)

Andie:             there’s some sort of “shirtless bro” convention going on down there

Me:                  what?

Andie:             yeah, a bunch of “frat boys” running around with no shirts on.  I can’t deal with that

Me:                  that sucks

Andie:             yeah undergrads (big sigh … like that wasn’t her last year)

Me:                  why don’t you drive home and hang with us.  Last day for sunning until next summer (probably)

Andie:             hmmm…maybe I will.  I’m not doing anything here until tonight

So she drives home and she’s floating in the pool with me and Daniel comes outside (he’s been out with friends)


Daniel:            hey Andie

Andie:             hey Daniel

Daniel:            so how was med school?

And then I cracked up because she had only been gone about 36 hours.


Andie:             it was tough but I’m glad it’s done

And then I realized that I DID actually love my kids… or at least, I think they’re quite funny.

    Ha! Kids always like to say they can’t wait to leave home, and then are back at the first chance! I hope my girls are like that! Now that I “appreciate” my parents, they are the ones I want to hang out with the most. Mostly because it means free wine.

      Yeah…I’m lucky they’re all pretty cool

    I love that she came home to be with you a little more. That just makes me smile.
