The Shape of Things to Come

The Teenager drove over the mountains to attend orientation at the college that she will be starting at in the fall. She left on Tuesday and, with the exception of a handful of texts, I haven't heard a peep out of her. I find this...worrisome.

I get that she is technically an adult now. I get that she will be out of my line of sight for extended periods of time once classes start. I get that she won't be living under my roof and that I won't have the inside track on who her friends are and on what they are doing.

I understand all of that.

That doesn't mean that I have to like it.

And, I don't.

Not one little bit.
