It's here, and I am not prepared
OK, I was also glad to see high school done and over with, but for very different reasons. I was ready for COLLEGE, Booyah!
Thing 1 hopes to go to college, but there are some hurdles. No matter, the regional community college is a good one and once he has 24 credits done he can transfer those to the UNC system and finish out at a 4-year institution. Those are bridges yet to cross, because today is about reaching this milestone and celebrating that he actually made it!
There are a group of seniors going out to lunch today (hosted by me and the ex), then the boys are coming over here to hang out. Thing 2 has to be at the school to get on the band bus by 5, and I'm sure we'll be on the road by 6:30 or so to get downtown for graduation that starts at 8. It'll likely be 11 p.m. by the time we get home!
So, I'd best get get to get going on all I have to do today - with Mom coming down to witness the great event, my house has to be SPARKLY and the garden must be neat and tidy. It's a good thing she visits every once in a while; my house is never more clean than when she visits. :)
Wish me luck y'all. Twelve hours from now I might well be a snotty blubbery mess. We'll see how it goes.
