Happy Sad Things

Today is the day. My daughter is starting her first semester at the University of Calgary next week and so we spent this week ringing in the new year with my family in Calgary and setting her up at my folk’s place (yay! cheap rent with the grandparents). And then today I leave her here and head back home to Swift Current.

I realize this is one of those Good Things as a parent. Your kid made it! They’re moving out for productive reasons!

On the other hand, this has been my gig for just about 19 years straight so we’ll excuse me if I wander around lost for a bit right?
