We just returned home from Freshmen Orientation...whew...we (and she) survived. Met future roommate...highlight of trip, classes were selected (no 8am, thank goodness), ID was made, yearbook photo taken (be prepared), got lost-found our way (hey, part of being a freshie), attended endless dos and don'ts sessions, learned how NOT to crash your computer (back up EVERYTHING, especially that paper you've been working on til 3 am!!), when they say doing such-n-such will get you sent home...they mean it!, met tons of new friends (thank goodness for Facebook, won't be embarrassed when we can't remember names in August), and fell into bed exhausted each night! (at least Mom and Dad did, she was busy catching up with everyone on Facebook!!!)
Now the fun begins (well, mom thinks it's fun...she wishes it were done already, and dad...well, he's a guy...no further explanation needed) We spent the greater part of today at Target, Bed Bath and Beyond and the Container Store!!! Roomie's mom must have had the same idea, as the girls were texting each other from store to store comparing notes and complaining their mother's were CRAZY!!!
We did manage to get quite a bit checked off the list! I have learned this child is NOTHING like her sister. She had her own ideas, knew what she wanted and was picky. This one, INDECISIVE and could care less, truth be told!!! As long as she has her cell phone, computer, iPad, food (meal plan), and a cozy bed...she is a happy camper!
So, if I am a bit lax (or more lax than my usual sporadic posts) you will know I am torturing my child to choose between pink or blue towels! LOL
