Feeling strange...

Despite the fact that today's a holiday (at least in parts of Germany), I'm working. Not the whole day, just started in on things early evening.

Now I just happened to glance at the clock and realized that it was already 6:30 pm - and my daughter hadn't wandered by yet to ask what's for dinner. And following that realization came the second one: she isn't home anymore - I dropped her off at the train-station this afternoon because she had to go back to boarding school today. Holidays are over tomorrow.

It feels so totally strange not to have her around. I'd gotten used to her constant presence again over the holidays (which were long enough - from Dec. 20th to Jan. 6th - 18 days in all!). And I realized another thing: I, again, truly enjoyed having her here. Even though I didn't manage to get much done, because I spent more time with her, but it was lots of fun.

Good to know that, while puberty *has* set in, it hasn't really developed into something unpleasant. Yet? ^^

You know, I don't usually mind her being away all week - we *do* talk every day and it makes my professional life easier, for certain.

But when she's been around for a while - like during school vacation - I get used to her being here, and we have lots of fun together, and then when she's gone, I suddenly miss her lots and lots again...

*sigh*

The trials of a working mother... ;)

*hugs back*

Okinawa? Wow...

True, while I don't have a son, I can imagine that it's different from having a daughter. Cilli and I just mesh, somehow. It's fun to have her around. Maybe that will change, when she gets deeper into puperty, but right now it's a wonderful experience. :)
