A week ago Friday, I took my daughter to the doctor to have them look at a lump in her neck that we've all been watching for a couple of years. It'd gotten bigger so it needed to come out. Talk about fast, she had surgery 3 days later. She had a rough first week with pain and nausea but the worst is over and now a week later she has a 1 1/2" scar to show for it! Hadn't planned for it to be that soon but I'm glad it's out before she heads off to another state for school next week.
I need to go buy waterproof mascara. Judging from the tears that have already started this week, I'll be needing it for the big drop off in Cali. next week. I don't know why but it's so much harder to think about dropping her off that far away than it was bringing my other kids to school an hour away. I really didn't go visit them at college very often, maybe a couple of times a year, but it was knowing that if they got sick or needed me, I could be there pretty fast. This whole long distance thing is not sitting well at all!!!
One thing I am finding is that it's not as much fun to cook for two people. I'm so used to cooking for 8 to 10 that cooking for two just doesn't seem worth it at all. I wonder what my husband would say if I quit cooking all together?
We're off to the county fair in Nebraska this weekend. I love the county fair. It's small town America at it's best. Carnival rides, rip off games and the best Fair Food around; Funnel cakes, Indian Tacos, ribbon fries, and fresh squeezed lemonade. My plan is to play lots of 25 cent a game Bingo at the Lion's Club booth and lots of catching up with family and people I only see at the fair. Toss in a parade where they throw lots of candy and prizes and a town BBQ put on by the Cattleman's Association and what more could you want from a weekend? I married into the fair but can't imagine living without it.
