Daughter called around lunch time. It wasn't a happy call. "I miss you," she whined. That was progress. She didn't call seeking to convince me she was in danger and needed me to come rescue her. She stated what she was feeling right up front. She was frustrated because she didn't see me Sunday. I reminded her that she gets to call me several times a day and that she'll see me tomorrow. I also pointed out that she had gone longer without seeing or talking to me when she was at camp.
We had a death this afternoon, and she called while I was with the widow. I answered long enough to tell her I was busy and she could call at 8:00. She was fine with that, and it's after 8 and she hasn't called.
