I am officially an empty nester (non-financial)

September 25th, 2013 at 05:11 pm

Today we took DD2 down to college. She is attending the same college DD1 is at (although DD1 just transferred to this college last year).

It is kind of nice to know they are in the same town Smile

DD1 is in a sorority and is living at the sorority house. DD2 is living in a dorm.

All seems well and we got her all moved in and unpacked.

The only downside is she is in a triple (not her choice), but the biggie is that the room is obviously a double made into a triple. Fortunately her 2 roommates seems really nice. She met 1 over Spring Break after they met on the profile board for the college. She lives in a town about 20-25 minutes from us and they ended up meeting at the mall in the Spring. They decided they would be a good match and wanted to room together. Getting a double was hard as you had to sign in multiple times to try and get the hall you wanted. They got the triple and then got assigned another roommate. She is from WA state so they both just met her today.

Hoping they will all get along well. Classes start on the 30th.

We went out to breakfast this morning and then DD1 came over to visit and we ended up taking the girls out to lunch.

We dropped them off and headed back home. We are headed out to dinner tonight as we are feeling a little lost. All in all, not a frugal day (we also had to fill my tank on the way home) as the college is about 1 1/2 away.

I am sure we will find our footing soon.

It's hard to let your kids go, but knowing they have exciting things to come makes it a little better.

Thanks for letting this mama spill her thoughts Smile

    ((Hugs)) With my oldest as a junior in high school, I don't know yet what that will feel like, but I can imagine it does feel like a small loss.

    I am on the brink of the eldest getting her drivers license. Freedom can be just as scary for us I imagine! How lucky that the sisters are at the same college! Mine are Irish twins, 12.5 months apart and they are both happier now that they are in high school together (last year was bad when one was in 8th and the other in 9th).

    My oldest moved about an hour away. It is rough letting go. I miss him every day.
