"Can We Take A Nap?"

Brooke headed back to school this morning at 9:30, and yet again I cried.
This time was worse than the last time. First, I feel like we really didn't get to spend a lot of time together. She mostly stayed on the phone with her college buddies, or out with her friends from home. I KNOW this is something I'm going to have to accept, but right now it's really hard. I have to force myself not to think about it, otherwise it kills me inside.
When she got back on Friday it was like she had just been gone on a vacation, but when she left again I realized that she really IS gone. It's not easy for me, but of course she's very happy--and THAT makes me happy. It could be different. She could be stuck at a school that she hates, but she's not. We are blessed.
She says she's not coming back home until November. I'm not even going to comment on that right now. }:o[
