The Waiting Game

Cassie talks about leaving for college a lot now. She is focused, intent, excited. I don’t think she is very thrilled with the whole “waiting” game that is the next few months. And, I understand that.

When I make a decision to do something, especially something BIG, I want to get moving on it right away. I am not one to delay, to plan, to wait. I think Cassie has a bit of this in her as well. Now that she has chosen her school she is ready to be there. Yet, she has to wait through the whole summer before she can get started. The next few months appear useless to her – wasted on waiting.

And while I understand her frustration with the whole waiting game, I secretly wish time would stand still and I could have a few extra months with her.
