Shaking my head

Two kids in college, that's what I have. Jennifer has a swell new dorm apartment that is nicer than any apartment I have ever rented. Four girls in four bedrooms with a nice kitchen and a washer & dryer in the apartment? Crazy. I like all of her roommates, too, but I am sure I will find something to complain about before long. Christopher only saw her old dorm room, which was a cinderblock cell with no air conditioning and a shared bathroom for the whole hallway, so he was happy to move into his room, which is nothing glamorous but definitely a step up from that. Back-to-school seems like a better time for resolutions than New Year's Day* so I will come up with something by the end of the week. It will probably have something to do with finances, strapped as I feel at the moment. Or fitness, since I finally achieved averageness, weight-wise. Although I could use an organizational-type goal as well. Part of feeling down is letting things get out of control, and vice-versa. Anyway, I will think about it. Or pretend to have thought about it. Two kids in college. Damn.

*My New Year's resolution to floss has been interrupted briefly as departing children took all of my dental floss. Also all of my spaghetti sauce, lollipops, granola bars, toilet paper, my telephone cord (leaving the anurous telephone smack in the middle of a room upstairs ... no matter, no one ever answers it anyway), and probably many things I have not yet discovered.

You so rock!
And that's why, if I am given the opportunity to blast a new head onto Mt. Rushmore, it will be yours.

Re: You so rock!
And if not, may I borrow the dynamite you would otherwise have used? Please?

I can highly recommend cleaning a bathroom for a lift. And hey, with 2 fewer kids in the house, it'll stay that way longer!

This is true. We packed everyone off on Saturday and Sunday I cleaned like one possessed. I found the floor in Jennifer's room, I restored the computer in Christopher's room to a civilized state (he is fairly tidy room-wise but a computer swine), and I dug through layers of crud in the upstairs bathroom until it sparkled like the tiny jewel of a bathroom it is. Very satisfying! I can hardly wait to go home and take another pee ... k at it. Ha! Ha! (Does anyone wonder why my kids want to live at school rather than commute?)

Wow! Wow wow wow! It is so odd to hear the Chris is in college, I still remember him as a little tyke (and I bet he'd hate hearing that).

My new goals include walking to get ready for our DisneyWorld trip -- not being completely tired and footsore is trés important on a vacation like that. Also not putting so much junk food in my mouth. That's gonna be the hard one.
