We arrived in Kirksville on Wednesday evening around 6:30 pm. We spent the night in a hotel and we were able to get the key to the dorm room at 8:00 am on Thursday morning. This is a picture of his dorm hall from the main street.
This is a picture of the entrance is from the side door which we used to hall his stuff to is room. His room is on the first floor which made it very convenient and it wasn't to far down from this door. If anyone know my son, he is a very simple kind of kid. Not much to pack and bring along. He may decide after living there for a while of others things he might want and need.
His room mates parent and my husband and myself took a few hours to get stuff move around how they wanted it. It looks like it will work out quite well. We were able to walk around campus and help him get his gear and other things he needed to get started. We said our good byes around 4:00 pm. It was difficult but I felt like he is going to be OK. He was already playing xbox with a new team mate when we left.
I made it a whole ten minutes after leaving before the tears began. I am not worried about him because I have raised a great son and I know he will do great things. But I will miss seeing him every day and him just being around. This is a new part of my life that I will have to adjust to. Now about 10 more days and we will do it again when we move our daughter into her apartment.
I packed all my food for the trip and was on program 100% I was a little disappointed with the scale this morning thought I would see some sort of drop for all my hard effort. Nothing yet. I need to keep my mind in the game and just keep moving forward. Give it over to my trainer and let he figure out how I need to get the rest of it off.
No change in the food plan yet . Will see what he says on Saturday or Monday.
