I’m off again later this morning, headed to the greater Boston area to look at colleges with Geeky Boy. This will be the second mother-son college trip. As Geeky Boy said, ” Mom, you’re single-handedly getting me into college.” Which isn’t true at all, though it is true that I’ve strongly suggested he do some things. Several other mothers of boys have had to do the same thing. It is what it is. Truth is, I like my trips with Geeky Boy. He’s a good travel companion and a good navigator. This will likely be the last college visit we make for a while until the applications are done, I think. Trips, in general, with Geeky Boy will soon be a thing of the past, so I can’t complain.
I am a little travel weary, though. I feel like I’ve been away more than I’ve been home. When I get back, I basically have to throw myself into work. I kind of did that yesterday, working about 5 hours. I won’t be able to do that today, though I am taking work with me. I’m grateful for the time off and that I’ve been able to travel, but I feel a bit guilty about the things I didn’t do. That stupid Protestant work ethic again.
