We are getting ready to move our younger daughter into a house she is sharing with friends as she begins grad school in a few weeks. Unlike other places she has lived, this house is unfurnished, so we are sorting out what to send up. In fact – shameless plug! – I wrote about part of that process for last week’s SoCS: Desk Excavation.
This week, we took delivery of a new mattress and box spring, which will be paired with a maple Ethan Allen bedframe that my husband used as a child. A dresser that was a gift from my parents for the birth of our older daughter, who is their first grandchild, is slated to go, too, sans the changing table top that has now spent many years boxed up somewhere in our house but that once was secured to the top of the dresser.
Will this move mark the beginning of permanent “empty nest” for us?
