Lay Back, It's All Been Done Before

Today is a COMPLICATED Saturday, according to this week's themestress, Tara!  It is a good word for Saturday Scavenger Shots because so many things in life are COMPLICATED to the core.  Then there are things that only appear COMPLICATED.  Further, there are things that need not be COMPLICATED, but we make them that way through our own ways and means. 

So, what have I got to show you that is COMPLICATED?  Let me see...

Here is Girlie Girl's self portrait of her first day going off to college.  I was already at work when she left, so she had to be the photographer :-)  College is a COMPLICATED time of change and growth.  I have a lot of confidence in my daughter, though.  She managed to negotiate the COMPLICATED channels of financial aid and has covered her tuition and books.  Yay!

Who is this guy?  Sometimes it seems very simple and other times it seems painfully COMPLICATED.  After 16 months of doing the long distance shuffle, it almost seems normal...and that kind of bothers me too!  Real COMPLICATED or just me making it COMPLICATED?  I remain unsure.

So, once again, I am a people person.  But let's face it, people are the most COMPLICATED creatures around.

I hope your weekend is good, simple fun!  Nothing COMPLICATED about that!  Next week's word will be BAGGAGE.  What do you think of that?

Oh, I LOVE next week's word!

Relationships, whether long distance or not, can be very complicated.

That self portrait of Girly Girl is so cute and cheerful! Good for her for surviving the financial aid process!

Glad your daughter has managed to do that, it's certainly a test of her aptitude!

Good on your daughter!

And yes to the complicated nature of relationships. (She says, heaving a big sigh.)

Whew. 16 months. Sorry...

Tara: I'm glad you like it!
Yes, you know, sometimes I am certain that someday I will look back on this time apart from DR as relatively uncomplicated :)
I'm pretty proud of Girlie Girl, thanks!

FW: I wish I had her confidence and resourcefulness.

Secret: Thank you.
I know I do probably tend to make things more complicated than they need to be. One of my things.

NoRegrets: I always find it rather surprising when I count the months. Thanks.

Life without complicated interaction with people is boring. Glad you aren't bored!

Many complications arise throughout the course of our lives.. it makes us who we are and that isn't so

3GK: It is true, I am seldom bored :-)

Mrs: haha! You're exactly right!

Girlie Girl is a rock star, but as I know, teenage girls are complicated in general.

You are a rock star. I could never do the long distance thing half as long as you have...Especially without a definite end. It's WAY too complicated to me.
