|Countdown to goodbye
||[Aug. 30th, 2004|09:16 am]
Today is amy's last day here - tomorrow she flies back to Massachusetts. We've had a great visit.
It makes the goodbyes even harder.
I'm about to go fetch her out of bed. I really need to do homework for class tomorrow, but I sort of just don't care. I need to spend time with my kiddo. We won't do anything spectacular, just spend time together. After she is gone, there will be time enough for the rest of it.
I probably won't see her again until Christmas. Thanksgiving is Dad's turn this year, and though I offered to come up and see her for a three-day weekend, she said that the short visits are just too hard - they make her miss me too much.
Her dad and stepmom are still the optimal parents for her - she's not working outside the home and he has a government job and lots of time off. They can give her the time and attention I cannot. But it's so hard....
