When I think of summer, it begins on Memorial Day and ends on Labor Day. My son’s summer ended and his senior year began on Aug. 18. So it’s been good to have my daughter home for a couple of weeks. She spent the bulk of her summer taking a few elective courses at her college in New York, so her trip home was all the “summer” she experienced.
Much needed down time was the only thing on her agenda and it’s been so humid and hot in Charleston that getting out wasn’t part of her agenda either. So we laid low, ran errands, had lunch out, shopped, and talked. It was good.
And so summer ended with her climbing on a plane to head back to NY. We actually booked her a flight out of Columbia as her trip home was not expected and I needed to book her a flight back on short notice. It was a $200 difference to fly out of Columbia. Granted we had to get up at 3 a.m. to make it happen. Not sure I want her to fly out at 6:45 a.m. again, but it was direct and she got into the city by 8:30. She unpacked her bags, got something to eat and crashed.
We got home about the time she was unpacking. Once hubby got off to work, I crashed. Stacey May took the ride with us, so she crashed too. The bike ride and dog walking had to wait until the heat of the day subsided. Hubby rode with me. He’s been doing his own weight loss program and has lost 9 pounds as well.
Well we’ve had a busy few weeks, so I think we’ll just lay low tonight and pick up where we left off tomorrow.
