I was too dang tired last week to go to the church meeting.
Today was busy like always. 504 accommodation meeting for my kid who will graduate this year; but for whom it still makes sense to have accommodations in place. My kid is doing GREAT. That is the good news!
He chose a college eight hours away but managed to get rides no problem using a bulletin board to post the need for one on campus. It reminded me that I met my 2nd husband when driving my friend home to her parents who had the same agreement. They too would not come to pick her up or help her get home holidays- she was on her own. It seems harsh to me now that I am a parent. Then I didn't judge it- but it does seem indicative of a difference in what a family values. I mean I would drive ANYWHERE to see someone important to me and the contrast that my 2nd husband himself wooed me by his willingness to drive long distances just for a date won me over. I mean the commitment to his falling in love and doing whatever it took to spend even a small bit of time together was very attractive. I realize it was in contrast to his parents being the opposite at some level.
I also recall it being shocking to me when one student on my floor whom I was the Assistant RA for, told me that she did not have a bed at home anymore or a bedroom. She said once she moved out the family rearranged things and it was "like she never lived there." She said they were upset she left them to go to college. She was the first to go, from a rural home in the country. I will never forget this girl.
