She's on the plane and it's in the air! Made it out of Chicago just before the big snow!

Dd just left for DC for an 8 week internship at the Smithsonian, and I'm a weeping mess. Gah, having adult children is so hard!

    I would be so excited for her and so sad for me. Will she rotate among the Smithsonian museums?

    She's at the American Art Museum doing lighting for the exhibits for the entire time. And, yes, excited for her, but pity party for me that she's totally independent these days.

    It is such an exciting adventure for her. Knowing that, makes the letting go a little bit easier with time.

HIdden costs of dual enrollment: It's really easy to stop by the bakery for a croissant after dropping her off for classes.

Pro-tip: having a tooth extraction and a new roof put on the house the same day isn't the best combination.

    They are pounding on my roof as I write this. I couldn't imagine having a tooth extraction at the same time. The noise is deafening and the house shakes.

    Oh no. I'm so sorry. We had a new roof put on two weeks ago and there's no way I could've handled that! Hope you feel better and the roof goes fast!

Tree trimmer should've been here an hour ago. I don't have his phone number -- dh does, and he's on a plane heading out of the country. Ugh.

    Ugg! I would do a search on his computer (provided he doesn't have it with him) and see what comes up. Good luck!

    Good point, Chelle -- I'd spend the entire weekend agonizing over grammatical blunder. OTOH, if she stays here she can more easily autograph all my PHP books.
