My oldest has her graduation from nursing school tonight. Just hours after the stressed out thing takes her last final. Why is it when you have something special coming up and all that there has to be a power outage somewhere and my husband doesn't even get to come home at all last night. It is 6:00 am and he is still not home and I have no idea when he will get home if they will release him. I swear this happens before every vacation or big day we have planned.
So I am up at 4:30 am realizing he is not here still and always just a little worried about him. I am used to this sort of thing after 23 years of it but I will be tired today and he will be in a walking coma. I pray he gets sent home to have a nap and be able to somewhat enjoy what we have waited 21 years for. A child to be raised and done. I know she is not done but she has met a huge goal and I feel so very pleases as punch inside for her and for us so I just want him here and rested so we can savor that small moment when they call her name and I get to place that pin on her scrubs. Thanking God for this special day in our lives. I am a bit weepy. Wish my folks were here. I miss them for the big things. She is named after my mom you know. There will always be a bond there between them. Okay lack of sleep is making me emotional. I will post pics tomorrow. We will be the family with the bags under our eyes.
Finally he came home and is tucked into bed for a little shut eye before the ceremony tonight. Thank God. I think I was a little emotional earlier. I am always worried when he is out for long hours on no sleep. Thanks for listening to me.
