Even though we have been preparing for weeks, I think the denial is still super strong for all of us.
We walked by this pile so many times that I'm pretty sure we stopped noticing it!
It doesn't seem like too much stuff. I'm sure that dorm room will fill up quickly though.
Here it is in packed form...
I feel like I've been doing a pretty good job of staying chill. Especially since jury duty coincided with moving week. Nothing like having to wait until the last minute to see if you are able to travel. And I am the eternal optimist so I was SURE I would get to go. Finding out at the last minute that I didn't in fact get to go was bit heartbreaking.
I did lose it at Church Sunday. The priest had all of the students headed to college stand in the aisle and the congregation blessed them. That's so far been the only time I cried. I also made my people take photos after Mass to commemorate her last Sunday at home. They were thrilled.
We had a fun going away lunch with Emma's family after church. I hope she and Peyton will be successful roommates! I think they will do well.
Syd is still super terrified to be our sole focus. She's pretty sure swimming will take up a lot of time so she won't constantly be bugged by us. I imagine she'll find a few extra hobbies if we get too obnoxious.
As of now, I'm waiting to hear that they arrived safely. Tomorrow is official move-in and I made Mark promise they would face time me so I can at least see her room!
The tears haven't actually started yet, but I'm definitely on the brink of crying. I'm pretty sure it will be short lived if and when it comes. At least I hope so! Peyton will probably stay fairly tear-free since it's Mark there and not me. Fingers crossed anyway!
And it's ONLY 7 weeks til U of I's Homecoming and I get to see my girl again.
