Ever since the lightening strike and subsequent gas line near miss (I still find that a miracle), it seems like life has been turned upside down. Add to that classes are starting soon so this weekend is when Christopher moves to his own apartment near campus which.... for the most part... means he is moving out for good!... I barely have time to breath.
He is moving most of his things out and leaving behind what there is no room for at the apartment. He will take the rest of his belongings next spring when he gets married. However, my instructions were for him to take as much as possible now so I can begin the transformation of his former room. ;)
My sister, Bonnie, asked me if I was going to have a difficult time letting go. I think she was shocked when I said something like absolutely not! I went through all of that last year this time when he was moving out to live on campus (but then moved back for the second semester). Anyway... he lives near campus... about fifteen minutes from our house.
Miss M. came over on Tuesday to help sort through his "stuff" (and helped him assemble three garbage bags to throw out) and I have been sorting through kitchen items for him to take... those I had been saving and a few Goodwill finds we came across.

Everything still looks upside down here, too. We are hoping to get the final paperwork into the insurance agency tomorrow. There is a phrase I have told myself over and over in the past when I've been in the midst of a trial or chaos... This too shall pass. I keep thinking of cooler days ahead with my kitchen once again light and cozy and a nice pot of soup simmering on the stove and no fried appliances littering the rooms. :)
I do plan to be here on Sunday and I should be back to regular chatting soon. There are also letters to write, (I am so sorry for those I owe a letter!), and books to read, etc.
