Over the weekend we had my dad from CO, my mom from MN, my brother from IL here. My brother headed home yesterday, my dad left around 5am, my mom left around 10am, and ds1 just left to head to WI - while there he will be deciding if he's going to move there permanently.
From 7 people for supper on Saturday to just the 3 of us for lunch on Monday. The house would be quiet, except Pip is playing and fussing about changes he doesn't quite understand.
To say I'm kind of emotional at the moment is an understatement.
He has a friend - female - that he met online in 2009 and they met in person for the first time when she came to our house for a week in 2013 and then he spent some time with her family afterwards. He's also driven out there another time and she flew out for his graduation. Her father has invited Z to stay with them and look for a job on the road to productive independent adult.
Z was working as a manager at 1 Arbys franchise and due to some stunts (DoL violations) he was looking to transfer to a different franchise here locally. New franchise offered him a job and due to said DoL violations Z submitted a no notice resignation. Old franchise contacted new franchise and reported a bunch of lies resulting in new franchise withdrawing their offer for not wanting to deal with the drama being created by old franchise. That left Z unemployed and since he had been talking about wanting to move to WI over the previous year or two, we suggested that this was the perfect opportunity to give it a go. Z left today for a 7-10 day visit to see if he can get a job there and seriously give the idea thought so as to make a decision.
He still has moments where his pelvis hurts but other than that he's pretty much back to his old self - possibly a bit less limber than he was - I don't think he can get his legs behind his head any more.
