I work now with a group of mostly men, who are mostly roughly 10 years older than I am. I worked on a big project this summer with two men who I genuinely like as people. Both have college age sons, and in the middle of crunch time they both talked a lot about the logistics and planning - and emotion - of taking their kids to college.
The day after one came back from the drop off trip, he said to me, it goes so fast. I'm telling you right now, write it all down. Get a notebook, get something, and just write down all the good stuff. Because before you know it you're pulling up at the dorm.
And I thought, well, I do - did - that. I do have my notebook - this blog. This is where I should be writing it all down. I've got 16k pictures on my computer and I know I'll never print them out and make memory books, but I can document the highs and the lows and everything in between. Or at least some of it.
So, back for now. It's been so long blogger has totally changed and there's even an app. 2 years is a lifetime in web applications. But we can figure it out again, I think. And it's worth it.
