Google me!

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

Who knew there were so many ways to find someone? I like to point out that most of my adult life has been spent under a rock raising really amazing kids! I know I’m behind on just about everything hip and technical. Because everybody knows “hip and technical” go hand-in-hand. 🙂

I love meeting new people (especially when they come over to my blog)! I’m comfortable with the label of “social butterfly” placed on me by hubby. But who knew you could meet so many fantastic people just by clicking on the computer? Google, you are amazing!! I mean it! You’re incredible!

I wish I had invented you. Then maybe I’d be driving my dream car instead of the same Chevrolet Suburban I’ve been driving for the last 10 years. Oh how I love that car! But, if given another…..would jump and giggle like a little girl. ~~Thankful for my paid-for vehicle~~

I’m still learning so much about the world of blogs, websites and the such. I’m amazed at the visitor’s who show up just because they googled something that I wrote down. So cool! I’ve even been told by coworker’s that they “happened” upon my blog before (because of Google). Huh? Get out!

So, if you don’t use it. Start. Google anything. More than likeley you’ll find someone or something of interest to suck up all your valuable time. It’s only a click away! Go ahead, Google me!

It’s a brand new day…

Yesterday, I stepped into new territory as a mama. I packed up everything I could think he might need while he was away. I tried to think clearly….but how can you when you’re dropping your kid off at college? I was doing my best!

We arrived at Eigenmann around lunch time. It was a pretty cool system. Families pull through (when it’s your turn) and unload in the driveway right in front of the building. I say that because….we watched families all over campus hauling their belongings down the streets (because that’s how they had to). The dorms are not all the same. Some are far away…other’s close to the drop off area.

We felt very thankful!

Everything went great! He’s in an awesome building and is learning his way around. We bought some groceries to get him started and to make him feel at home. Guys like food! 🙂 We’ve got a list going with the things he’s finding impossible to live without. It’s those little things, ya know?

We left him around 7pm. He had dorm meetings to attend and friends to connect with. We just had to drive home and start a new way of living. Much like him. He called…..needing computer help. His dad smiled…happy to be needed so soon. I smiled..just hearing his happy voice.

He’s going to be fine….and so are we. We love him and know God has great things in store for him.  Growing up is part of life….who knew it would happen so fast?  Goodluck, Sweetboy!  Enjoy your time there at IU!  Home is always here if you need it.
