Today has been nice. As I've been trying to work, he's packing and preparing. But at one point, he called me in to trim his sideburns and shave the back of his neck. Well, something happened, and I cut a big notch in his sideburn! Oh, my. I died laughing, which scared him. He was afraid I had shaved the whole thing off. (I kindly informed him that if I had done something terrible, I would have made an horrified face, not laughed.
He's had his revenge, though. A few minutes ago I was listening to a workshop on my computer using my iPod ear buds. I've had such a hard time using them. They always hurt my ears. So I was sitting here, twisting and shoving them, trying to hear better and to stop my ears from aching. All of a sudden, my son, who happened to look at me (probably because I was groaning and griping), about fell off the couch laughing. Apparently I had been putting my ear buds in wrong! I had them sticking out instead of straight up and down. So yay!! Now they don't hurt. But I sure do feel silly. Especially since he keeps laughing about it and having a little too much fun describing how ridiculous they looked. :)
Tonight we're having a special family dinner. Then we'll load the car for what's now become an annual trek back to campus. Only this year, mom and dad aren't needed for the move. We'll be waving him off from the front porch. And maybe I won't cry this time.
