It's homecoming week for my Senator, which when you are a Senator there is an inordinate amount of crap to be done during Homecoming and when you are a Senator who is not old enough to drive, your driver, aka mother, gets dragged into all the crap. I'm also beginning to think that Homecoming dances have become like mini-weddings for teenage girls, but I'll post on that next week.
We've had some sadness this week, too. A dear, wonderful lady and lifelong friend of our family has left us. I will share her greatness with you in a post to come.
I am fascinated and terrified at the same time.
And so I find myself following the news, worrying after each and every Swine Flu death. And remember, at first, they were reporting the people who died all had underlying conditions, but now, people are dropping like flies from this terrible flu and now NO ONE has underlying conditions. It's scary stuff, Internet, I tell you.
The Odawg is really embracing college. She has learned that parties and staying up all night and meeting lots and lots of new friends with the shared interests of parties and staying up all night are the main components of college life for her. We just keep telling her, whatever happens in college, stays in college. Just keep the grades up or there will be no more parties and staying up for you.
