3 weeks until school starts. I know they're dreading it more than me so I can't say anything. The house will be so quiet. Hopefully it won't be a struggle to get out of bed. I miss my parents & beach.

Perfect day at the beach! Little sunburnt but it's ok. Wore my butt out, that's for sure. Ready for bed at 10:30 but I gotta hang out for a little longer so BF doesn't feel like he has to join me.

7.5 hours into the trip. Everyone is doing well. BF hasn't had me drive yet. Only a little rain & traffic so far. Missing my cats already. 😒 Excited to see my parents though & I know we'll have fun.

I get feeling guilty big time. But it can be a good (useful) experience for your daughter. So many young people don't know how to do anything and are not used to it, it makes their relationships even more complicated. There's definitely an upside!
