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!
