And I was able to direct Elayna's packing. While making her and Adam actually do all the physical labor, because I had that migrainey thing where if you move your head Bad Things Happen. Thanks for the packing tips, all! We've planned laundry for Tuesday, and she's picked out an outfit she doesn't care to bring with her for Wednesday, because we leave Thursday.
And that's what everything comes down to, my not-posty-ness; she leaves Thursday.
This person who I gave birth to, who my life has revolved around for over 18 years, is leaving home.
In three days.
And yeah, she'll be back for October break and then for Thanksgiving, but it will never be the same.
So I'm sitting with these changes. And I'm sitting with my daughter. And we're having lots of talks.
It's a good thing. But it's a big thing.
