I guess we can't put this off any longer!

Lizzy moves into her dorm 3 weeks from today! Yikes! We've done a lot of talking about what she needs, some planning, but virtually no shopping. So far I think they only thing she has bought for school is a large storage container for under the bed. And, we have a trip to Cape Cod planned for the middle of the next 3 weeks. So, today is the day - we must take action and start shopping!

Anyone who knows me probably knows I am not a "shop-'till-you-drop" kind of gal. Actually, I'm more of a "get-in/get-out" kind of shopper. Combine that with a passive/aggressive sort of denial that my daughter is really going to be leaving the nest soon, and well, you have a minimal amount of action happening on my part. But it can no longer be put off. There are comforters, shower caddies and school supplies waiting to be purchased. Today we must get motivated! Bed, Bath & Beyond - here we come!

  1. Oh, my heart is breaking for you. Lizzie is so sweet and I know she will be missed by everyone in your house...especially Michelle! If Meggie gets any wild ideas about going out of state for College next year, I think I'll be a basket case!!!
