I’m having a hard time focusing, kind of dragging around. Today was odd; I felt really tired on my nice, short, fast (well, it felt fast to me) run with Cathy and her friend. I had a birthday get-together to go to after that, and it kind of wore me out; there was a big group and lots of people I didn’t know.

I forgot to bake cookies for the first day of school today. Every year, I have cookies ready when the kids come in from the first day. Yesterday, I got all the stuff. Today, I just plain forgot. Remembered when the boy child walked in the front door. Aack.

All I want to do is curl up and watch mindless TV or read a book. Perhaps I am a little sad; I missed a phone call from our daughter at college and haven’t been able to get in touch with her since. A mom friend of mine whose child went off to college last week was there at the birthday thing, and we talked about it some. It was nice to hear that she’s been feeling all the things I’ve been feeling.

  1. Sorry to hear that you are missing your girl child. I missed my folks so much the first few days of being out on my own. I\’m sure she is thinking about you guys just as much.
