I just went through all the "Angie posts" from the last several years. I am going to be re-running a few of them in the coming weeks. This one seemed perfect for today. It ran originally on June 22, 2012 right before I was leaving for Norway.
Angie gets on high alert mode when anyone in the family is traveling. She worries about each and every possible bad thing that could happen and is convinced if she does not hear from the traveler within a very short time of their arrival in the appointed destination... it means REALLY BAD STUFF has happened!
No amount of reassurance that all is well will suffice. She must KNOW they are ok. I have been known to get impatient with her when she does this. Then she has to go and make me feel bad by calling me and saying:
Angie: I miss you already.
Me: Mom, I'm not leaving until the 28th.
Angie: I know, but I am really going to miss you. I wish you were here right now.
Me: I will send you a picture and you can tape it on the lamp by your bed.
Angie: Ha, ha, ha. Don't be funny Carol, I mean it.
