That Time of Year

It’s that time of year when you get that melancholy feeling. It is time for the kids to go back to college.

  • I mean, don’t get me wrong, they have been home forever.
  • I mean, they are not all leaving.
  • I mean, they are still so close.
  • I mean, we’ve been here before.
  • I mean, they have to go sometime.
  • I mean, we will be okay.
  • I mean, I will be fine.
  • I mean…I will still miss her. A lot.

We’ve hit that time of year, the one that we experience, more than once a year…and even though this year is so unique and bizarre, somehow it is no different. It just feels somehow more…meaningful. Fall college starts now; soon, but later than normal.
