Good morning everyone. It's been a hectic week...what else is new, right? My son left early this morning for his new life in New York. He moves into his apartment this morning. We are headed up tomorrow morning with our car loaded to the max, to help him get settled in. It has been a week of shopping, organizing, packing, and more packing. It's just an efficiency apartment, but when you are starting from scratch, you need everything from shower curtains, to salt and pepper shakers! It's been exhausting, fun, and expensive to say the least. I wish I could have been up there today to help him start to move in, but too much to finish up around here. It will be a full day tomorrow unpacking and getting his little place in order. He is so excited, and as a mother,watching him plan for his future really tugs at the heartstrings. Of course he is planning to come back next weekend with his friends to get some more things. He asked me to keep the pool open a week longer so that they can use the hot tub! Some things never change. As you can see from the photos I took this morning, we are packed to the roof. His SUV looks the same. It won't be easy navigating around Manhattan with only my side view mirrors!
