Today is the Day
We are packing oldest for his move to another city. Due to the anonymity thing going on in my blog I am not telling exactly where it is, but I will say that it is a nice, growing town with many more opportunities in place for him than in our area. He does not have a job to go to though, so he will live off of savings for a while until he finds something. He will be much happier because he has friends there, and he will be moving in with a good friend of both of the boys.
He is taking enough that we had to rent a truck. Neighbors might do the happy dance when they see the truck pull up. They might think we are all moving.
I am deciding what to do with the extra space...I am not sure what his room will become so I might have to wait until next weekend to set it up. It will need a corner to corner cleaning first though and since I go back to school on Monday and will not be home tomorrow I might have to just shut the door for a week.
He is also taking half of what is in our sun-room so I will get to re do that room as well.
I better go, we are about 3/4 of the way ready and with all he has, that last 1/4 will be a chore. (silly me, I started to say that the last 1/4 will be a "killer" , but since I had a heart attack the day after I helped pack up youngest to move home, I will avoid that phrase.)
