A selfless act

A selfless act

My daughter went back to school yesterday. She took the train back. A normally uneventful trip that became an extremely horrendous night because she was traveling back into a snowstorm. Her school is only about 3-3 1/2 hours away from where we live yet the weather can be drastically different. She doesn’t go to school up a mountain but it is further into New York State than Long Island where I am. The snowstorm, which we were following, was starting…

Love to my daughter

Love to my daughter

My baby is bringing her stuff down to her car again. I have both dogs on me staring at the door I might be just as sad as them, not because she’s leaving, because she’s still having a tough time with the roommates. We are trying to find someone to take over her portion of the lease and she’ll move back to campus housing but we haven’t been successful yet. It is a bad situation and I hate having to…

My baby girl is home

My baby girl is home

I’m so happy my girl is home. Second year of college complete and first year away from home. Academically not the greatest year but Albany University is a hard school and she tries. Socially a great year and I see such a difference in this girl. I’m so proud of her. She is turning 20 in a few weeks and I’m amazed at where the time has gone. One day she was 6 getting a second cochlear implant and now…

Random fun

Random fun

Yesterday I was looking at a past order on my amazon account. I stepped away for a second. When I came back my dog jumped on the chair and I see thank you for your order. She one clicked more pet pee pads for herself for my room. 😂. Glad I was looking at that and not a vacuum. My daughter pledged a community service fraternity and got in yesterday. I’m so proud of her. Going away to school has…

My baby girl

My baby girl

My baby girl left today to go back to college. It was so hard. It was harder this time than it was when she left in August. My house feels really quiet. I know she’s not going to be walking back through the door tonight and I’m so sad. I’m so glad that she loves college. There is nothing I wanted more for her than to have an amazing college experience. She loves Albany most of the time. She’s just…

Goodbye 2018

Goodbye 2018

2018 wasn’t a bad year for me. Yesterday marked the day I moved into my condo a year ago. Although it was technically 2017, it was really days of complete chaos until 2018. I wake up to this view to look at. Trust me it looks a lot better than my picture shows. I learned that I can still swim. I have spent a lot of time in my pool. I was fortunate to have an indoor pool in my…

My daughter is leaving today

My daughter is leaving today

It’s quiet this morning. Not the quiet in sounds more in stillness. I’m listening to the gardeners mowing outside as I am gazing at the water. My dogs are even still. Do they know? This morning Zoey didn’t finish her breakfast. In two years Zoey has never not finished a meal. Yesterday she needed a little coaxing and today as soon as I walked out of the kitchen she came with me and wouldn’t stay and eat her food. I…

Happy birthday Mikayla

Happy birthday Mikayla

It is my daughter’s 19th birthday yesterday. I was so excited about her gift bag for the first time I didn’t leave it on her room for her to wake up to. I gave it to her when she got home which was 1am. I know she likes the excitement of seeing the balloons and the bag opening her eyes on her birthday morning and now I feel guilty I didn’t wait. I just bought her all this Albany college…

Disability help in the college setting

Disability help in the college setting

The decisions been made, my daughter is going away to school. She decided on the University of Albany. Actually we could be technical and say State University of New York at Albany. It’s a state school, but it’s a good school. The criminal justice program is the second best program in the entire country. She’ll need a 3.2 to get into the program. She’ll have her work cut out for her, but that’s what she wants. Mikayla, my daughter, is…
