Let's Do It Again

Fall Break came and went way too fast. Was my girl really here for four nights?
Has it already come and gone? I think I must have blinked and now it is 
Monday and she is back in school. Sometimes I wish we could rewind to
the really great parts of life and do them all over again!

I told you in this post that Miss S came home last Wednesday afternoon for her
Fall Break. She had "the crud" that seems to be affecting most everyone right
now. She sounded stuffy, but wasn't overly miserable.

We were able to get out on Thursday and run some errands and also do a little
bit of fun shopping, but by Thursday night she started to feel worse.

On Friday morning we headed to the doctor to see about getting her feeling 
better. She was officially diagnosed with "the crud" and got and antibiotic
shot, and some allergy medicine.

After the doctor, Miss S needed a smoothie from Tropical Smoothie. She loves 
the Kiwi Quencher so that is what she got, and I tried the Orange
Glow smoothie. Smoothies were a nice treat after visiting the doctor.

For the rest of the weekend Miss S got lots of rest and lots of attention from
the puppies.

On Sunday, we went grocery shopping so she would have the things she needed
once she got back to campus. Miss S loves peanut butter and joked that she 
needed one at least this big...

Before she left to drive back to school, Hubby gave her car a quick wash.

And then, way before we were ready, Fall Break was coming to a close.

It was so great catching up with Miss S. Conversations are so much better in person
than over texts or phone calls. And I slept better than I have in weeks knowing
she was safe and sound at home in her bed.

Having your heart live outside your body is such a difficult and painful thing.
If that statement sounds foreign to you, just wait. One day when your child
moves away, you will remember it, and it will all suddenly make sense.

But here we are today, and I have a flat tire on my car. I mean flat, flat! Hubby 
put air in it this morning, so hopefully it will hold long enough for me to drive 
over to the tire place and see what is going on and hopefully get it fixed without 
having to buy a new tire! The tires on my car are only three weeks old!!!

To quote Forrest Gump, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know
what you're going to get!"

I hope you have a great day with no flat tires, ha!
