packing for college -R.I.T. bound



It has just hit me that my son is going away for college -R.I.T. engineering school!
We have spent the last day cleaning out his room and both of us are sneezing and sniffling ---here are photos of the piles we have made. So far the only ones happy with this arrangement are the cats! They have found a new place to sleep. Still to be packed up --all of Andrew's computer equipment -wondering how we will fit everything in 2 cars --my husband will leave tonight or tomm --early, with some stuff, as he is playing golf tomm in the Catskills..I will follow Sat afternoon.
I'll spend night at R.I.T on sunday after my son gets moved in --LOL! will report back next tuesday if we survive this...

So your son is taking two cats to college with him? I base this assessment on the picture which does include some cats.

Since you are concerned about filling up the cars, you might leave the cats home, of course this is just my $0.02 :-)

Good luck in packing all the stuff in your cars...if anyone can pack massive amounts of stuff into a small cramped area (violating laws of physics of course) it should be a ultra marathoner, so I know you will succeed!

Have a safe trip,
Tammy

Tammy --I asked the cats if they wanted to be packed up! and go live in a college dorm -they said no.. --they are however nervous and sense change --cats are such intelligent creatures of course:))

I packed and drove my son this weekend. How hard that was. The hardest thing was to see him making up excuses for us to stay longer. He even wanted to go shopping...
I miss him so much...

ahhhh thanks for the post Emmy, I SOOO remember packing up to head out from NJ to WV my freshman year...it was scary yet very exciting times in my life...and yes was sad when my parents left me there but after a pick up basketball game and a few beers with new fellow colleagues I was good -- haha
