Our daughter came home for her last “while-in-college” spring break, and I have oh-so enjoyed having her here. She only has a little over two months left of school before she returns home to study for the bar exam. And, the good news for us, is that when she finishes with that, she will be working in Austin.
Some of you have been with this site long enough to know that she went to the University of Texas in Austin for her undergraduate studies. It only takes us (+/-) an hour and half to drive all the way to the center of Austin. Of course, all of this depends on the traffic>>> which has a lot to do with whether you are trying to get across the bottle-neck bridge, or not!
We decided that it would be best if we simply took it easy while she was here, since it is her last college vacation. There wasn’t much more than hanging out on our schedules. She was able to go to two movies, and get a lot of walking done. (I never mentioned this before, but all four of us have Fitbit pedometers. I absolutely love mine! I try to get 10,000 or more steps in every day. I have only missed a few days since having the Fitbit. Not bad for someone who was pretty couch-potato-sedentary five months ago!)
So, at this point, I am full of conflicting emotions. I am really enjoying her visit home right now, I am dreading when she has to go back to school, but I am also excited about her moving back to our area in less than three months.
