The trip to North Carolina was much easier than I thought, but I overestimated the ease of my recovery. It was just delayed. I still ended up flat-out miserable and stuck in bed for about a day and a half. So still no plans to visit Austin 🙁
Counting the days until college move-in day for John. This is the latest in his stack of supplies:
Pretty cool, right? I was planning on just the clear ones, but it’s the only decor he’s seemed excited about, so I’ll let him take it up with his roommate.
There have been way too many out-of-pocket expenses for a student who supposedly had a “full ride” scholarship. And way too many things that John should be taking care of that Michael or I have been doing at the last minute to meet deadlines. Procrastination makes me a nervous wreck, so he’d better pull it together since we won’t be getting email updates like in high school.
Michael started Nerium‘s new Youth Factor superfood and antioxident boost powder. I eat a healthy diet, but Michael’s never met a veggie he liked. Within FORTY-EIGHT HOURS he felt a difference, which is an incredible result for my favorite pessimist. He’ll be on this long-term, because with no signs of excess vitamins or minerals coloring his urine he’s absorbing all of this!
I know I’m way behind the times, but I’m addicted to having Pandora playing while I’m doing mindless activity (sorting email, checking FB, etc). I’ve been on a Stevie Nicks kick lately, and it’s been very calming.
John teases me that “Back to School is my crack” and he’s like 99% right. Especially for college. Here’s John’s first aid kit.
I made a similar one for Aaron his Freshman year and as far as I know it lasted until graduation.
I do understand that part of my love of assembling Back to School supplies is that I’m a #boymom and pretty much as long as nothing is pink, teal, fluffy, sparkly, or has kittens on it they don’t care.
