Weighing heavy on my mind…

The college girl is umm…heading off to college. We actually bought her a new car…a cute little Mazda 3. She named her Bellatrix. I am not sure why but we have always named all of our cars, and actually refer to them as Sadie, Yvette, Kira and now Bellatrix. (Can you guess what kind of cars they are?) LOL She wanted a white car so the red Alabama decal looked good on it??? She is so funny. Like for real, she cracks me up and always brightens my day. I am going to miss her so much it hurts my heart just thinking about it. She will miss me too, she just doesn’t know it yet.

Things that are weighing heavy on my mind:

  • She will be sooooooo far away. No direct flights so at least two plane trips or a 16 hour drive!
  • Just her and I are driving to Alabama from NJ. I have only driven from North Jersey to the Jersey Shore on a handful of occasions. Now we are driving 16 hours AWAY!!!!  Two years ago was the first time I threw money in a toll! Everyone just say a quick little prayer that we don’t end up in Tijuana or worse Bismark.
  • She will be all alone. No close friends and NO FAMILY.
  • Did I mention how much I will miss her?
  • Lola and Tucker will miss her…BAd!
  • Who will pick up my little ones when I can’t get there in time?
  • We went shopping. It was fun and distressing all at the same time!  Who new it could cost so much?

I DON’T WANT HER TO GO! Bad things happened when J went off to college. Who’s to say the same thing won’t happen again!!!! We are leaving on August 11th do you think it is to late to tell her she can’t go? :o)

I am a mom of 4 who thought she was home free when my oldest son went off to college. My serious blunder? Genetics and being naive or maybe just plain stupid.

    Oh my gosh!! I so relate to this!! Really….you and I are speaking the same language. My girl is only 6 hours away, but still I miss her a lot. We bought her a cute little car too…Betsy the Beetle. We also name our cars…Ernie the CRV, Cindy the Subaru, Benson the Benz and Carl the Camry. And yes…who will pick up my little one when I can’t get there in time??! That is my life too!

    It is so hard to let go of our kids. Imo, it is the ultimate act of faith! Picture sitting right in the pal of the hand of God. That helps me at least.

    Yes, every mom of grown/growing kids can relate to this feeling. You want to let them fly and clip their wings at the same time!

    Rejoicing, crying, and praying right alongside you!

    My one and only daughter leaves for college on the 13th. We just had a big going away party for family and friends today. I still don’t want to think about it. She will only be 3 hours away, but too far for my comfort.

    I named my college car (a Datsun 200sx, which really dates me) GQ after that sexy guy’s magazine back in the day. Is that still a magazine? Anyway, I had 5 accidents with that car in the same side quarter panel, two my fault and 3 not. I finally totaled it when someone ran a red light and hit me. I have never named another car, and have never been in another accident. (knocking wood)

    Good luck to your daughter. Lean on me whenever you need to talk. I’ll be in the same deep depression missing my daughter.

    oh yes….it’s so hard…I know how it is. We left our daughter at college back in 2002, and I cried for awhile on the ride back home. These partings are truly sweet sorrow. Just try to think of all the good and wonderful things awaiting her in her new college life….for there are…for sure. And just remember that she’s a different person than your son….and most likely, it will be wonderful for her…and I know that’s all that you want. Have a great and safe trip. She’s on to a new and wonderful phase of her life. : )

    Awww..I remember when my daughter left for college..in my 10 year old Ford Escort hatchback. It lasted 3 years (the car) and now my daughter is one year away from her PhD. You never know where their lives will take them. How exciting!
