animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook


Yesterday, another successful adult was launched into the world. Jake moved to southern Virginia to be with his girlfriend, who is going to veterinary school down there. I helped him get packed this week and Brian hauled the U-Haul trailer down there with his truck yesterday. It was a sad day. I didn’t care so much that he was moving out, because that’s what you’re supposed to do when you’re an adult, I just wish he wasn’t so far away (6-ish hours). But, I guess I’ll get to see him frequently enough. He’s going to be coming in once a quarter to work in the office for a week. And, he’ll be home for the major holidays, too. Plus, I’m planning on visiting once or twice a year. My only hope is that they end up a little closer to home after she graduates, but who knows what will happen there?
