Kids leaving for college is hard on everyone, judging from my friends’ remarks on social media. Be strong, moms and dads! (And evidently “K-Week” at the University of Kentucky is a hoot because we have heard not very much from the lad.)
Sometimes kids leave for school having burned out your candle lighters, thereby blithely leaving you citronella-less on a buggy evening.
The best deal on candle lighters is at a place called Tractor Supply (out on 220), which I learned from the cashier at the store (not Tractor Supply) where I was purchasing my replacement candle lighter.
After all that traveling and drama last week, one can certainly appreciate a relaxing dinner with your empty nest buddy.
