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.
