What a week! With my mom in my brother’s capable hands, I took off for a whirlwind spring break college tour with my daughter and one of her friends. The two girls have really different interests (biology/zoology vs English/creative writing) and often would react completely differently to schools. At times, J. would say “Yuck, terrible vibe.” and E. would reply, “Wow, I like it!”
Including the informal tours, where the girls did not take a tour, but rather just visited friends in the dorms, we saw about a dozen schools in eight days. Despite the hectic schedule, I felt more relaxed at the end, then I did at the beginning because of the terrible week I had had after my mom’s car accident.
Many thanks to all who sent my mom their well wishes. My mom is doing a lot better, but still has a long road ahead of her. Considering what I’d been through, it was pretty ironic that I was writing about Mother’s Day this week.
