My girls are on vacation...together...without me...or their dad. Isn't that just the cutest thing ever? They packed up in the eldest's bright red Nissan Versa and drove East to the land of retirees, palm trees, and Mickey Mouse. They took enough to survive for five weeks and should be home tomorrow, after only 7 days. They are rookies at the packing for vacation thing, they will get better with each trip.
I wanted to text them about every 15 minutes. If I had, I would've wrote things like "Don't forget to say please and thank you" (they stayed with my folks), and "pick your wet towels up off the bathroom floor" and "get out of bed before noon every day", etc. etc. It was an endless tickertape in my head.
My oldest texted me one evening and said she heard my mother talking on the phone with someone and told them that "[my] girls were very independent, but of course Susan is their mother". She said it made her feel proud. I am proud too. I am also glad I didn't textstalk them all week :) It would've totally blown the independent cover. :)
I just want to say thanks to you all for your good wishes and prayers and kindness. I have been declared "cancer free" and I am steadily beginning to feel better and have even been able to put a few thoughts together to write a tad bit. Thanks again. :)
