He found a room in a house of four other men that's within walking distance of his new job. He's not starting for another week or so, but he's planning on looking for a second job and getting himself settled in.
Got his stuff unloaded.
And then we headed out for some lunch. Packing and driving and unloading had us eating our lunch around 3:30pm.
After fortifying ourselves with burgers and fries (thank you, Red Robin), we went shopping for some basics: towels, a set of dishes, some cook wear, a trash can, some toiletries, and a nice TV (his was a handmedown of a handmedown and is pretty ancient). I kept asking him "do you need sheets?" The answer was no until I got home and realized that all the linens I washed were still in the same place they were when I folded them. This morning I ordered him some sheet sets, extra pillowcases, and a small refrigerator.
Next stop was the closest grocery store. We picked up some food and a $100 gift card so he won't have to worry about food for a little while.
It's been weird not having him here and I miss him very much. I know this is going to be great for him. Plus, I'm not planning on letting him move back home because I don't think I could do all these emotions all over again.
