I opted to leave the orthopedic shoe/boot at home, because I couldn't imagine doing as much walking as I knew was planned with it on. That may or may not have been a wise decision. I can say with certainty that we walked way more than my foot was happy with on Friday while we were in San Francisco. But it was worth it to see the area of town where he hopes to live. I was happy that we opted for a driving tour the next day though, my foot needed a rest.

He'll be coming home for a few weeks before leaving again to go live his life as an independent man. He has some travel planned this summer, including a trip to Europe. Then he's off to join the ranks of corporate America with a full time job in silicon valley.

I'm extremely proud of her as well, and am having a hard time getting my head around the idea that by the end of next summer, it is likely that they will BOTH be college graduates. How did this happen? Where does the time go?
So I guess Husband & I will continue the mental transition to empty nest. My immediate focus is on getting my foot healed (right or wrong, i cancelled my podiatry appt), and getting through this next oral surgery (Thursday, yikes!). I'm still debating whether or not to take a class this summer or wait until fall. Life goes on even as it changes...
