Freedom, Almost

Ahhh...put one kid on a plane last week and another today. One more on Tuesday, which will leave me and G with just our little clown Special K. So I guess I can put up with M hanging over my shoulder constantly everytime I sit down.

Today W returned to Cameroon for good. Her departure was not what I expected. Not a tear shed on anyone's part, which in a sad way is reassuring. I took it as a sign that she is just as glad and relieved to leave us as we are to see her go. For the first time in months, I don't have to worry about locking up my valuables when I'm home or hiding all of the phones. And for the first time in years, she will see her mother and other family. I wish her well but am not sure I will ever be able to welcome her back into our home.
