It looks like Gonzaga is going to do most classes online, with some as a 'hybrid'. We got an email yesterday basically saying that kids have to 'apply' to be on-campus/in the dorms for the fall.

What a disaster.

Today’s load-up and go day. Drop off tomorrow.

Out of nowhere driving home from the grocery yesterday I started to cry as it hit me. This one is gonna be hard.

And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

This is good for me to read on a day when the kids are being more difficult than normal.

shit TB, i feel for you. hope for all the right reasons it's a very boring and uneventful drop-off.

we drop off our oldest a week from today. i've already had a few of those moments this week and even though it'll only be a few hours away, the drive back is gonna be brutal. we're a tight unit.

So this means that when we met up for lunch, college kid would have been right about the age of my oldest now. That ... doesn't affect me at all. Good luck.

further adding to my "no really i'm freaking out and not just because we're literally almost broke" is that in 3 years we will be empty nesters. ...tf...

A co-worker's daughter is an incoming frosh at SMU and they're headed down to Dallas at the end of this week. She (mom) is freaking out a bit.

So, our daughter’s lease is up on Aug 25 . Her new lease doesn’t start until Sept 1st. She is (finally) checking to see if she can move in early. If not, they’ll have to find short-term storage for furniture. The wife and I are going to drive up to Seattle to help her move. Luckily, I find no evidence of quarantine requirements for Washington or Oregon. Probably booking a vrbo or air bnb for a week. If we find a pet-friendly place, we might bring the dog. Sheesh.
So, the above is definitely happening, bringing the dog, too. On the positive side, it's the closest thing we'll have to a vacation this year and we'll get some quality time with my daughter as she spends her limbo week between leases with us, so that's cool.

DaveinSeattle - we are staying at a place very near Green Lake, in the Greenwood district. If that's not too far for you, maybe we could have a socially distanced beer together one evening or afternoon at the park?
