So… less than a month.
And as I talk about in the video, it’s all getting very real.
I cover his plans and the fact that the windshield on his car got broken (because right now, cars are the undercurrent theme even though I’d rather they not be).
And I ALMOST cry but I don’t.
OMG. I will next time, I already know it. I do NOT want to cry.
But the truth is this.
I didn’t plan on emptying my nest alone.
I didn’t plan on him being gone so much with jobs, and school, and friends.
I can’t stock enough food to entice him to be home.
I agreed to put our house on the market around graduation so I’m going through everything and then some trying to make sense of the life I had and the life I have and the life that’s coming.
And at the end of all the celebrating and packing and moving, he will be gone to California.
And it’s payback because I grew up in Connecticut and hauled my heiney out to North Carolina. And stayed.
It’s all as it should be. 😉
