A week ago, we watched Kale and Kayla leave out for Texas. They’ve made it safe and sound. Their apartment is adorable and they’re all settled in.
Today, Tyler headed out to Hot Springs for most or all of January for work. He works as an insurance agent for my brother-in-law and will be staying with them as he gets further training. I sure am gonna miss him… even though he’s not around much these days.
It was especially hard to see him go because I gave him strong “motherly advice” yesterday to consider going early because there was a slight chance for some snow overnight… only about 15% and maybe as much as a half inch. He decided it would “be alright”. So, when we woke up to 4” of snow this morning, I was a little upset. It then snowed most of today too.
He left around 4:00 for what under normal conditions would take about 3 1/2 hours to get there. He hit a deer on slick roads at about the half-way mark. He is okay, and he thinks the deer was too, but the vehicle got a little damage.
Thankfully, he got there a little before 9:00… FIVE hours later!! Here he is, safely, in Kristin’s living room.
