BB left this morning. At 7:20, they pulled out of the driveway & headed for Galveston. I knew it was really going to happen, but now it's real. The last few weeks have been very interesting. I think we all learned a lot about each other & about ourselves. I'm weepy today. This liquid substance keeps coming out of my eyes, but I know those aren't tears. Nuh-uh. No way. I don't cry....At least, not where anyone can see me. Maybe just those silent hiccupy cries where your eyes turn red but your nose doesn't puff up.
But I digress................
I am going to be a bit on edge until I hear from them. It's about a 9 hour drive so I figure it will be well after I get home from work. I just pray all goes well & uneventful, but I hope it's one of those road trips where you discover things about yourselves. Driving alone, for a lot of people, is empowering. I know she's not alone, but she's the lone adult. The kids might be both 18, but they're still kids.
Anyways, blessings to you all & I hope you find what your life has been missing.
