Andrew has left me!!!
He's gone for four days to Los Angeles for a choir event. It's like a little trial run for when he moves there for good in just a matter of months. It wasn't so terrible this time, as I was so looking forward to just cleaning my house and having 4 days where I didn't have to come home and question whether I would find crumbs everywhere in the kitchen, or something that spilled all over the microwave, or jeans in a pile in a doorway (why does this happen ever anyway??), etc. It's just peaceful. For now.
But I know it's only for a few days. And I have plans every day. So it's easy to accept him leaving.
When he goes off to college though...nope....not easy. Not at all. Do people survive this whole "empty nest" syndrome when there is only one baby in the nest? And only one parent? There are unexplained deaths all the time in our country. Perhaps this is one of the explanations....
