Hello, friends! Why do I have a photo of Palm Springs in this post? Because we are thinking of paying a visit again, this time after my son graduates. He usually joins us but Memorial Day weekend he was still working on school projects and the like so he had to stay behind. I love the easy feel of life there. It would be nice to visit again before he leaves.
I am happy to report that we have decided to FLY to Missouri for my daughter’s move-in. Rental cars are an issue but we will be flying into Wichita and my son will pick us up and help us with move in. His AmeriCorps boss was very accommodating so HE will be our car for the week and he will stay with me at the hotel until I leave to return to California. Booking now was critical because the cost of travel is about to hit the roof. I saw it rise even in the one week I was on the fence. We will buy some things now to ship to him, and then the bulk of it will be purchased there. We are arriving two days before move-in to allow for that. I plan to hang around for the Family Welcome that Friday and then will leave Sunday just in case she and her roommate need any last minute items.
I got the garage all cleaned out and made room for my son’s things. He will be back by this weekend. Hopefully. Not sure he can fit everything into his car. He will be here for about a month before he leaves for Kansas. Stuff like dental appts and the like need to be taken care of. I can totally relate to some of my friends now about all the tasks associated with moving and storing of furniture and dorm planning. My son’s move took little effort.
As for reading, I had hoped to be done with Summer Darlings by this writing but not quite there. I should be done soon though. I need to pick up my book club read next, Go Tell It On The Mountain. That club meeting snuck up on me.
Now that travel arrangements are made, I am hoping to settle down a little. I got myself all worked-up and actually asked my doc to prescribe something but she either promptly ignored me or forgot to type her reply because I am still waiting.
That’s all I have. The weekend is up in the air. It would be nice to visit the Arboretum. Maybe I should look into that.
