Milestones

Well I have reached something a milestone I guess.

The milestone? Well I have a daughter who is traveling to Egypt (leaving today) for a few weeks of over-seas study. I am actually thrilled for her, as this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime event. I know she will do well and I hope this opens up all kinds of possibilities for her.

How is this a milestone for me? Well I'm actually old enough to have a daughter traveling to Egypt. Man, when you look back to how you felt back in younger days, it's hard to imagine being old enough...and responsible enough...to be the parent of a young adult. Hell, I barely consider myself to be an adult sometimes, let alone a parent. Just how did this happen?

Anyway, here's to safe travels for my daughter Katrina and to milestones for middle-aged guys.
