Woo! Hoo!

My daughter is coming home today for a short visit!!! She has to fly back to pick up a car and then head back to school on Sat. I am so excited that we get to see her before Thanksgiving!!

Somethings never change are our conversations over the last week...

her: mom, please, please don't serve pork while I am home

me: why?

her: That is all the school is serving...pork in various forms..I can not eat any pork!!! Red meat please!

me: wow! that must be bad if you are already sick of something in the cafeteria!!

her: you have no idea! Oh, I am also getting a lot of requests for "rum" cake (aka pound cake that I wrapped in a rum cloth for travel, only I got a little carried away with the amount of rum I soaked the cloth in.......ya)

me: no promises because I have a crazy week

her: crazy schmazie! You can make it and teach me how at the same time! (in other words, you can make it) do you think she will get a cake to take back with her?

If you say are not a mother of a college student that lives 8 hours away!!!

How fun that you get to have a quick visit with her. I know she'll be getting the cake :)

Thanks so much for the recipe you left on my blog the other day...I'll be making it real soon.

So sweet. Boy, can I ever relate. Mine came home today so that we could celebrate her birthday. We ate a Ruby Tuesday's. She liked the purse I bought her. I meant to give her a little check before she left, but we both forgot, so I'll have to mail it to her!
