I just dropped off my oldest to her first high school event: soccer tryouts. What a bittersweet moment that was. Maybe I'm just being too emotional today, but driving home after signing her in was an odd experience. It hit me like the proverbial ton of bricks. One of the strings that ties her to me has been snipped. Not that strings haven't been snipped over the past 14 years, but starting high school begins the major string cutting. Wow.

I just can't dwell on it for too long. The really weird urge to applaud, fist pump and sob all at the same time keeps rolling through me.

Hubby and I watched 10,000 BC last night. Pretty lame in some spots and pretty fun in others. What is not to love about seeing mammoths building a pyramid or stampeding?? On the agenda for today is a quick stop in at the bookstore to pick up #14 of the Plum books for my personal reading pleasure. The weekend went by in a flash, but it turned out rather well. Ate way too much, as I usually do on holidays. I'll have to be a good girl for the rest of the week.
