Teen Daughter One left at 5:30 this morning to travel to an international shooting sports competition in Pennsylvania. This is a biggie. The pressure is on. Not just for her, but for me. She'll be gone for eight days and I'm not with her. Don't worry though, I'm holding up okay. So far.
As for the kids:
TD1, "Bye Rose, I'll miss you!"
Princess Rose, hugging TD1 with all her might, "Oh Patty, I shall miss you horribly. I love you, I love you, I love! I miss you already. How will I get through the week! I love you with all my heart!
TD1, "Bye Sparky, I'll miss you!"
Sparky, as he walked away, "Yeah, whatever. See ya."
