KNITTING GAL

Moving to College Day.......and not a picture in sight!


Today is the day that we moved our daughter and son back to college. This is my daughter's senior year and my son's first year. Fortunately they are attendending the same university so the move was all in one direction. It has been a long day starting at 4:00 am when we left the house and drove to the school. We hit all kinds of traffic as we got near Washington D.C. (were the school is) but we arrived in time to unload my son and then hit the store (Target) for things that were forgotten or decided at the last minute he needed. (Also bought Mattress for daughter's apartment.)We then went to the apartment that my daughter and roommates will be living in and unloaded the car and unloaded two thousand dollars for rent and security. We had Wi-Fi installed at apartment and now she and dad are putting the bed together while I type this out on her laptop. We are then heading to our son's dorm for tonight's orientation and then after 9:00 pm heading to our hotel! Tomorrow the full day orientation begins and there will be lunch on the lawn and professors to visit and dinner with my daughter's boyfriend's parents. We then will be heading home to spend the weekend in a prone position.I have no pictures of knitting as I haven't been doing much this week. Poor Oliver is home alone with a dog sitter so no pictures of him either. So say a little prayer that we make it to the end in one piece and have the strength to actually drive home! Kidding aside it has been a few days from H e double hockey sticks! I haven't even had time to think about missing either of them. I am sure I will when I have recovered.

I hope they both have a great year. My sister is in your boat but her daughter decided to take a year off and stay home...she's still a wreck to see her son go off. I wish you the best.

I sent my oldest son off 2 weeks ago, he had to head back early, it's his second year, it was harder then the first year actually, cause I knew how much I missed him last year and to have him home for the summer was great, now I know what I'm in for so that made it harder, still have one in my 'nannybird' nest and at least one more year of the grandkids being close by. Keep on knitting to help you with the empty nest syndrome, maybe that will help.

You will miss them both and so will poor Oliver. He'll need extra hugs. You, too. Have a safe trip home.
