I’m at the University of Virginia for the week, attending trial college so that I can kick my trial skills up a notch. I’ve made a few trips away from Baby Beez before, but she is such a momma’s girl, and she’s so verbal, that I know this trip is going to be a hard one. She’s going to be asking for me a lot, and a toddler doesn’t really understand what it means for mommy to be gone “all week.”
The classes don’t start til tomorrow, so I’ve got tonight to relax. I rolled in around 5:30, and I’ve already chowed down on way too much thai food takeout, am watching a show on vh1 classic about 80s hair bands, and in a few minutes I’m going to go to the workout room and get a little exercise in.
It’s stunning how, now that Baby Beez is a toddler, the day-to-day time and effort of her care and attention has become a regular part of my life. For example, it takes nearly 2 hours every morning for me to get the both of us ready and out the door. Tomorrow it’s going to take a whopping 20 minutes for me to get ready. It’s nice, but so strange.
Ok, that’s all I really have to say today. I need to go get on an elliptical while I’ve got the chance.
