Whitney went back to school today. I know she really wanted to go back so yesterday I told her I better see her eating food and showing me she was capable of taking care of herself. Her throat is hurting way more than her nose so eating is not fun. Surprisingly she found out she likes jello. Well she did everything I asked so she drove back today. I drove up too (Dan was running a fever so he had to stay home) to help unload the car since she isn't supposed to be lifting anything heavy. And boy does that girl have some clothes.
There was hardly anyone there so we got a good parking place and were able to leave things in the lobby as we took the suitcases up the elevator. I helped her unpack and brought the suitcases home. Of course if she forgot anything I would be seeing her twice next week for doctor followup appointments.
When I got home, the house was so quiet. Her bathroom was clean and the bedroom looked somewhat presentable. It's back to cooking for two and having lots of leftovers.
I love my child but I know that she is happy to go back to school and be with her friends. Even though we've lived here her whole life, she really likes her college friends better. So it is good that she gets to be with people she can talk to (other than us of course).
