happy mother's day to all of you who have shared life with a child. i hope the day was everything you wished for and more.

my weekend started surprisingly well. when i came home from school on friday, my boys all took me out to dinner, which was lovely. today i got cards and chocolate, a call from the girl who couldn't be home with us this weekend, and hubby made steaks on the grill with baked potatoes.

all and all a lovely weekend. i got next to nothing done in terms of being productive, and tomorrow after school i start my spring class out at the college.

so all in all i'm just going to savor the winding down of the weekend.

it's hard to believe that just a little over four years ago we opened that fat envelope welcoming the girl to the university of michigan and offering her a four-year full-ride. i thought i was proud of her then, but today?

this weekend was exhausting, running around campus to the various receptions and celebrations on friday night. but in the midst of all the uncertainty of these extraordinary times, it was so very deeply moving to watch and listen to the celebration of these students who have already persevered and overcome, in a lot of cases, significant obstacles and who face challenges yet unseen.

and i can't tell you how deeply, incredibly moved i was today, when i sat under the sun and blue sky with 40,000 other proud parents and families in the big house, and watched my little girl graduate.

hail to the victors, indeed.

it's been a beautiful day. sun shiny and warm, and the grass is green and the birds are chirping. it's been a beautiful weekend. and as the final precious hours of it tick away, i realize i have done absolutely nothing productive with it.
since thursday i have done basically nothing but go to work on friday and criss-cross the state moving kids from their college lives to back home. i've logged maybe 500 miles in that time and really enjoyed not having to do anything but drive. i have no headache and no balled up muscle driving shards of pain through my left shoulder blade.

though i'm sure that will change by the time i drag my sorry self out of bed tomorrow for another monday morning in our countdown to the end of the year.

i've been trolling my old lj entries wondering if i should import my journal, if i can figure out how to do that, or not and just consider this a whole new thing. and i've been wondering if i should post any of my old fic here as some of it really isn't posted anywhere else. i have farscape and sg-1 fic in my files.
and since i haven't been able to write a damn thing lately, with the online course eating my brain, old fic is all i have to offer, in case anyone is interested.
