We were very proud and relieved that our girl had managed to find a great job for after graduation. In late January, she was set to go to work with a large company’s office in Charlotte, North Carolina, so we spent a long weekend getting her moved in.
She flew from Roanoke to Auburn to collect her things, as I’ve mentioned.
The next morning, we got up at the crack of dawn and picked up this streamlined vehicle…
And made our way through Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and into Alabama. A long drive.
The next morning, Cora and I drove her car and Jim drove the loaded-up van back up I-85 for five hours to Charlotte.
We were glad to have the next day free to visit Costco and Target, as well as other sites of interest around the city.
We left on Monday, MLK Day. I was feeling a little blue that our “baby” was now out on her own in the world, but overall glad that she was launching herself in a nice town.
And then the next day she called to tell us that her company was transferring her to New York City. She is moving in less than two weeks.
