Karma's When I Feel Like It Blog

In a Blink

That’s how quickly my 66 days of summer went by. This final weekend really felt like the end of summer too.

On Saturday, day 65, we went to an annual beloved party with our wonderful gang of friends – Lobsterfest.

and lobster dinner!

Plus lots of fun:

Today, day 66, a day I’ve been dreading for a while now, was the day Meghan moved back to school.
Dorm stuff
All her stuff, ready to go, even though her mama is not ready for her to go.

Dorm building

The new spot
Meghan is in a dorm building this year with apartment style living. She has 5 roommates. They have 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, an eating area and a bathroom.

Three flights
Three flights of stairs to haul all that stuff up!

Back on campus
Her bedroom, with lots of organizing to do.

Even though it is an old building, I thought the windows kept it fairly bright and airy and not too closed in feeling. There’s a view out to the Worcester Hills in the distance from the dining area.

I miss her already.

And thus ends the 66 days of summer. I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at my life, this favorite season of mine.

    • She should be home for a mini fall break first – a extra long Columbus Day weekend that her school does. I don’t want to rush into the holidays! 😉

    • There are certainly some that I wish could go on forever!

  3. What ? Where did it go ? But it was good wasn’t it ? And you’ll both be fine … honest. Consider yourself hugged.

    • Thank you Sybil. My time off went by way too fast. At least we have a long weekend coming up to ease us back in to being in the routine.

  4. We had lobster 3 times the week we were in Maine. It was OK, nothing I can’t live without, which works out fine because there aren’t a lot of fresh lobsters in Michigan! As for your daughter going back to school…I remember heading back…I missed my family too. I’m sure she’s missing you even as she’s getting back into the excitement and fun of being all grown up away at school.

    • Lobster is a nice treat – but I agree, nothing I can’t live without.
      I’m betting Meghan hasn’t had time to miss me yet – she was so ready to go back this year. I’m happy for her that she loves her school so much, even as I feel a little sad for me!

  5. First, I haven’t had lobster in years. You’ve got this mouth watering. Second, are both of your girls at college now? Third, hugging you, too. Would you do the “days of summer” blogging again on another summer?

    • I’ve got one more year til both girls are at school. Sarah is a senior in high school this year. So not ready for her to be out of the house too!
      I did enjoy the days of summer blogging. Not sure if I’d do it again but it did make a nice journal of my more leisurely days.
      Thanks for the hugs!

      • OK, thanks for clarifying! I remember seeing Sarah’s senior pics, so wondered…
