I did vacuum the carpet. I thought that was very helpful. Matt is fortunate to live in the house that another pharmacy student bought and rents out rooms. This is his second year there, and he really likes it, so do we. But with the move, we needed to go purchase things you need in an apartment, but not in a room. Silverware, dishes, etc. Oh, and microwave, no one could live without a microwave. Plus, he'll be studying so hard, he won't have time to really cook or go out to eat.
Moving was a very HOT job. I thought surely we would sweat off a few pounds, but NO. Now that Russell and I are empty nesters again, we really, really (I mean it this time) are going to diet. The house is quieter and we keep looking for him, it takes a few days to really get that he's gone. We thank our ever watchful God for allowing us to have a safe trip and good time with one another.
We went with Matt to visit a church there and we really liked the services. There were several college age men and women there and we hope he will connect and have a true church family of his own. We will miss him being with us at church.
