New Beginnings for Junior Diva


Hubby and I dropped off the Junior Diva at her college dorm Friday afternoon.  It was a day that I was excited about, but a little sad, too.  She got busy setting up her room, and we went to the grocery store and bought items to help fill her full-sized fridge.  I never had a full-sized fridge in college, so this was indeed a luxury for me.

She'd given me a list of items to purchase for her, and wow was I surprised when at the top were items like, "strawberries, mandarin oranges, carrots, mini cucumbers, and lean cuisines!"  I am glad she made those choices because it made me feel more comfortable about leaving her.

And that is what it is all about -- leaving her at school to begin her new journey.  Gosh, I was so tempted to call her every five minutes.  Then I wanted to text or Tweet, or Facebook her, but I stopped myself each time.  I want her to have the full college experience and I don't want to be a worry-wart.  Her brother, who is three, keeps asking where is his sister.  I have explained to him several times over the past couple of days, but he doesn't quite understand it yet.  Luckily we have web cams around so we can always skype and get them talking again.

I miss my Junior Diva, but she is off kickin' butt and takin' names!  Best wishes and many blessings, Junior Diva!  I love you!
