we have a lot to catch up on friends. i don't even know where to start. i'm a little out of sorts today. my girl is gone and my parents are gone. this morning when little miss s woke up she went right to our guest room to look for my parents, but they weren't there. then she ran down stairs looking for them, but they were gone. they left at 5 am this morning while she and i were sleeping. today is also the first day of her last year of preschool. for the first time in four and a half years i will have free time, 20hrs a week of free time. i have been looking forward to this day for a long time, however in the past couple months as this day approached closer and closer i became sad, not glad. my little buddy is going to be away from me...a lot. she's a cool kid and fun to be around. she is pleasant. she rarely has temper tantrums or meltdowns. she is easy going. it is easy to be her parent and i like hanging out with her. after i dropped her off i hung out at her school with my mom friends whose kids start later, just kind of lingering and not sure what to do with myself.
we took these pictures with my parents yesterday at my great, great aunt's 100th birthday party. it was so nice to connect with family that i haven't seen in 20+ years. these pictures are a great depiction of the silliness we had this past weekend.
i'll be back soon with a happier post. i have lots to share about my room redo, palm springs, and a great new recipe.
i still have two hours to go before i have to pick up little miss s:(
