I miss my daughter terribly.
She usually gets home around 2:30-3:00, see. And we have a few hours of Gilmoresque banter and general hanging out, and it is good, and my internal schedule is all set around her walking through that door by 3.
But for the duration of Explo... the earliest she gets home is 5:30. And she often stays til 9:30. When she's not outright sleeping over there, which she gets to do thrice a week.
So instead of the usual ~20 hours of time I'd have with her by Thursday night, I've had ~3 this week.
Will have another hour or so tonight, then nothing again til Sunday evening.
I miss my girl.
She's having a great time, though.
I'll just barely get to hang out with her, is all. Just the car ride back from Explo tonight, which will be us trying to keep up with what she's been up to the last two days and finding out what she'll be doing this weekend. And the hurried packing of stuff for the weekend.
I wish I felt well. That would help.
I will go stop being maudlin now.
