Day 237 – August 25, 2019
Before I get to the main story, I took a quick excursion to the battlefield and Talk about bumps, not only is the first Monday of a full week of work, it was also my daughters last day home. After living in Dallas from October – May of this year she decided to “officially” move back to Dallas. She has rented a house with two friends whom she developed a good friendship. She even packed her cat (something she did not do last year) and her car is completely packed with much more of her stuff. Of course, I am holding out hope until she gets her Texas drivers license, which will really make it official in my mind. I guess I am somewhat relieved that she decided to go back to Dallas where I have family and not Chicago, Tampa or Denver which were the other contenders. I guess realizing last time that she would be coming back home (made obvious by leaving her cat) made it a bit easier, but this time I am not sure. A snide gesture? More than likely, no. It is unsettling though, and something that I think will weigh on me. All 3 kids have gutted their rooms and have spread out (Dallas, Chicago and Philly) and I can’t help but wonder what I did to drive them away?
