She's Back

Ok, so this will be brief as I don't want to belabor the topic of Blair moving home, but I feel that to let this go undocumented would be a disservice to the public.  There needs to be more awareness of the plight of the organized mother of unorganized children.  My daughter has many, many wonderful gifts, but, as you can see, organized car packing does not make the list.        

Davis went to retrieve a load of furniture and large items yesterday and today, she arrived home with the FOURTH and final load.  The back end.....
The passenger back door.....
The driver's side back door.......
In the backseat, the clothing rod had given way under the immense load that it was asked to bear.......
And finally, the passenger door.........bear in mind that 5 or 6 items hit the pavement each time a door was opened. 
After 6 loads of laundry, several trips to the attic, 3 big bags of trash taken to the curb, and poking and stuffing things here and there, I believe that we have successfully merged her things back into our bloated home.  Her closet rods are packed so tight that there will be not any sifting through the racks to decide what to wear this will be more of a whatever you can dislodge is what you're wearing type deal.  I have concluded that much more clothing came home than left here......hmmmm.
It's a good feeling to know that she had a wonderfully successful year at school, but it does a Mama's heart good to know that we'll all be sleeping under the same roof for the next 2 1/2 months.  Ahhhhhhhh.  Welcome home, baby.           


  1. That is one full vehicle! I'll be experiencing this next May. I look forward to seeing my daughter, but not necessarily all her stuff! Glad you got it all back in and will have your daughter home all summer. :)
