the cloud that could
we didn't get on the road until 2pm yesterday. the boys' room was insanely filthy. it was the kind of filth that boys hide from mom and that surprisingly passes room inspection...tricky filth, the worst kind of all.
i cleaned while sage packed. we rearranged the room for boothe as sole proprietor & finally got on the road.
dorm check-in went smoothly & we got him moved in and went to dinner. sometimes, it is good to be so tired that you can't even cry when you leave your oldest child at his new home in a new city.
his dorm is a 'dry' dorm which means there is no alcohol allowed. i asked if there were 'undry' dorms and there actually are, but the tradeoff is no airconditioning in those dorm buildings. unbelievable. i couldn't get over the fact that someone would chose to drink and sweat, especially here in south texas where we have only two seasons - 'hot' and 'hotter'.
this cloud was a twee bit inspiring on the way home. it sent a shoutout that said 'mama, itz gonna be okay.'
