Jer has to show up for baseball camp last week in August to prep for a pre Labour Day tournament in the southern left coast..I think Washington State, so we're flying out for a few days setting him up in residence ...er or we thought we would be........seems earliest a room might be available is the 26th and we sail away to the Inside Passage on the 25th. Great planning, eh? All being well, we can book him in the residence as it remains a hotel until the 25th and he can drag his year's worth of stuff within or to the other freshman building near by. I figured a cruise might mark the transition from family of three to just Bob and I, at least for a few years. Theory is they move back home but as you've said, I hear they never come back from BC. I'll need something to distract me and won't want to return to work for that first week that he's off by himself, and fly directly home on disembarking, leaving him behind. The only way I gain my composure is by thinking of all the texts, Skyping and emails asking for more money, complaining he's so hungry or it's our fault____ (everything's our fault, so fill in the blank ) So BSea... roll out the red carpet, speak to the powers that be at UBC to provide buffets for athletes' meal plans, and please order some nice weather for the left coastline up to Tobyn country!
