I hope you all have had a nice weekend. It’s been a fairly quiet one here at our house. Just the regular stuff.
My favorite parts of the weekends are Friday and Saturday nights.
You know, when it is time to enjoy some extra good dinners.
The coziness factor that goes along with it.
Sitting around talking with a glass of wine before dinner.
Enjoying the food itself.
Listening to some music.
And most of all, to talk.
One other thing we are doing a lot now since Karolina came home is to play games. Both board games and card games. SO much fun!!
And, with Karolina at home it is ZERO problems learning new games either. She takes care of that. She reads the rules and in a split second she has it down and we can start, haha.
Me? I despise reading rules and I do not like to learn a new game, or card game.
BUT, with Karolina as a guide it is done in no time.
I’ll miss Karolina so much once it is time for her to return to LA again.
She is scheduled to go back on January, 31. BUT, as you might know LA County is ridden by C-19 cases, it is said that every third person out there has tested positive.
It is not that bad here where we live.
Anyway, it is so easy and fun having her here at home. My grown up daughter!!
I can tell how much she has matured during these two years in LA.
When she was at university for four years it was more of an extension of her teenage years even though you graduate when you are around 22 years old.
You know, living in the dorms is fairly easy, you have your food provided at numerous locations on campus, attend your classes, studying, rehearsing for shows and performances, being with friends, going to parties and all this in the fantastic environment that was Elon University in Karolina’s case.
It is sort of a start to your adult life (being in college), since you do not live at home anymore. Well, except for when you’re home on breaks from school.
You do grow up to an extent while at university…
It is when you REALLY move away from home that you become a true adult and a grown up. FOR sure.
When you have to pay your own bills and deal with every day struggles.
When you balance work, classes and you are far, far away from your parents IT will mature you.
I was so worried that Karolina would be bored here at home during this pandemic when she arrived in Reston back in early December. BUT, no such thing.
She is content in a way that only means one thing, she is an adult.
She is helping out around the house without me even asking. Again she’s an adult.
She is cooking dinners for us. A new interest of hers is FOOD and cooking.
And, you know what, up until recently she was one of the pickiest eaters in the DC-area. Her eating habits were one of my biggest concerns as she was growing up. It is so rewarding seeing your kid blossoming into a wonderful adult.
IF you have adult children you know what I mean.
Haha, so be IT!!
Have a good Tuesday!!
