My husband is on the way home with the boy. The kid is already registered for classes for next semester and his housing will be the same as the same kids are coming back and all put in to be in the same townhouse. Oh, he's got a girlfriend.
Back in December, just before Christmas, he and his last girlfriend broke up. My son doesn't like to talk and he talks even less about his feelings. I got that it was no one's fault. I loved his girlfriend. She was adorable, smart, going to art school (though not the one I went to - I teased her a little about that). Anyway, they had been together for almost 3 years. What I told the kid, is that they might find each other again. They still travel in the same general circles. If it was meant to be, they'll find their way back, but at 19 and 20, they should take the time and grow first.
The new girl, my husband said is physically the opposite of his last girlfriend. She's older than my son too. She just graduated from the same college my son goes to. She was a English major with concentrations in journalism and creative writing (my son is a creative writing and music major).
The young one is not impressed with the idea of his big brother coming back. But when he gets here, he'll start talking about all the things they have in common (the little one writes as well).
Should I be writing about fitness and health? Maybe, but life is a balancing act and today, it's about balancing family again.
