Get Me Off This Ride!

Yesterday afternoon I began writing this...

If you're not up to date, read this then this.

It's been decided, D1 is coming home. What we thought would be around trip ticket for a summer visit between summer and winter session, has become a road trip with an over-stuft car with all her personal belongings.

She is coming home for good.

In my own selfish way, I am thrilled.

It has been a long year and I welcome having her living back with us. We have one year until D2 will spread her wings and leave for college. I will relish and enjoy every single moment we have all four of our chicks home with us during this coming year.

We have laid down the law. She understands the expectations and she still chose to come home despite our rather strict rules and high expectations.

I think it will be a good year.

Then last night the phone rang...


Back the moving truck up and flip a b*%@#.

She made a A on her most recent test. Isn't it amazing what one can do when one takes advantage of the free tutoring and really tries?

Now, she realizes her potential. She wants to stay and give it a good earnest try.

I hate this roller coaster. I want a definitive answer.

I want off this ride.

In truth, I would really just like her home and not four states away.


I'm linking up with the gals at TTUT. You should, too!

  2. Over all three of the posts, I have a feeling I'm reading my future with Princess Nagger. Kill me now. ;) Here's hoping she aspires to her potential and you're able to exit from the roller coaster safely. ;) ((HUGZ!))

  3. Amazing! I'm doing this college mom thing in two years, but with a son. My guess is he'll just leave and I'll be lucky if he comes home for vacation! Enjoy your summer with D1! Anything else is a bonus!

    1. If she does end up staying, she'll be coming home for just two weeks. :(

  4. I have a long time to get used to the idea of my boy leaving home, but I have a feeling that I am not going to ever get used to it at all, even when I have no choice. Enjoy while you can!

    1. Thanks! I guess I'll get to enjoy her company for two weeks between sessions. I was hoping for longer. Such is life.

  5. While it is awesome that she got an A on her last test, I can see where you are wanting her to make her mind up. I also can definitely see why you want your daughter home.

  7. I have a senior this year. She was going to do community college for 2 years, which we all thought was a great idea, now she's thinking of going to a small college for 2 years than transferring to a big University for the remainder of her education. I'm fine with either but just like you I need a firm decision, I can't handle the back and forth stuff!

    Thanks for lining up with us!

  8. I wish mine were close to home too! We live in CA and my youngest will be in the south and my oldest in the northeast. Good luck!
