Half Empty Nest

Skowt left tonight to go up to her friend's family cabin for 5 days. I'm a little sad and nervous about it.

I've only been away from either of the kids for that long once before but that was hubby and I leaving. The kids were at home with grandma. They've never been away from home for that long without me.

It's also the first time since she was diagnosed with diabetes that she'll be away from us. I'm usually right there to monitor her numbers and dosing. I'm sure she'll be fine but it still makes me a bit nervous.

She promised to call when she gets there and keep in touch each day. It will be strange and very quiet around here without her.

It's nice to have a break from the kids every once in awhile, but kinda hard when it's such a long time. I can't imagine how I'm going to feel when she goes off to college or moves out.

that's gotta be hard...expecially knowing that it's up to her to monitor the diabetes. I'm sure she'll do fine.
