Josiah is leaving on Sunday for Boston. He will return and move into an apartment a week later. Today he and I went shopping to find things for his apartment. He'd been telling folks he had a fridge, a futon, a tv, a table (last three items complements of our storage unit); all he needed was a microwave. We learned this wasn't true. He'll have another big shopping trip before he moves out.
Silverware - who cares if they match the spoons need to be BIG
A microwave, blender and toaster
Oh yeah - he needs a vaccum
He spent a couple of hundred dollars...I figure I can
We ended the excursion as this family marks any momentous occasion (girls leaving, 1st day of school, parents flying to Philippines); we went to DQ.
He's been clearing out his dresser, desk etc. Back at home we discovered that the silly string he threw away exploded in the alley.
Mommy note: Don't you think he's a great sport to allow me to follow him through walmart taking photos? It IS fun to help a child set up an apartment...much nicer that he's moving 1 mile instead of 2000 miles...and yet this means that in a year we'll be saying goodbye to him...and possibly Jamin (Please God give us an assignment Jamin thinks is cool - EUROPE)....I didn't cry at all or embarass myself while shopping....I am tearing up now....but I'm going to go swim before heading in to PWOC Project Night. ::snort::
