Hi! So this is move-in day, I moved in. Very
excited, it’s going to be sad not being with my mom but I’m excited and I’m ready
for class, got my books at the bookstore. I’m ready to go.
This is move-in day for Lucas and it’s a little bit hard for me because I’m sad to
say goodbye to him. And today most of the things that I’m thinking about are just
sort of everything combined that I’ve been thinking about all summer, but now they are
sort of rushing in because it’s the last day. So, the biggest thing though that I think
I’m thinking about is just making sure that he’s safe here. I want him to have a lot
of fun and I want him to meet lots of new friends and have a great time and I know that
he will and I know that I’ll miss him. Lucas has work orientation starting tomorrow and
so that will be a good way for him to meet new people and it’s nice that he has a job.
I’m glad about that because that’ll definitely keep him busy and give him things to do. (music)
It’s been a week now since Lucas has been away at school and I’m happy to report that
I’m much better than I was. The house feels a little empty and I’m learning how to,
how to cook for just two. Lucas is doing really well so far. He has kept in touch and he likes
his classes, he likes his roommate and he’s met a lot of nice friends and his work is
going well. So I think that the transition off to school has started off well and hopefully
it will continue. He tells me that he’s trying to eat at least one healthy thing each
day and he hasn’t spent all his money yet and he’s managed to make it home every night
so all is well and hopefully will continue to go well.
I still love my mom. I’m still going to miss her.
