It's not so bad the second year...
Here is The Bird's new room.
This is her stuff.
Her roommate wasn't due for another 4 hours.
It is a cute on-campus apartment.
And on a fourth-floor walk-up.
As in, we walked all this stuff up. Four flights.
I was sweaty.
And right here?
Some of The Bird's footwear.
Those pretty blue cowboy boots used to be mine.
I don't recall how they became hers.
But, here they are.
I decided to let it go.
Life's too short to obsess over lost cowboy boots.
Even cute blue ones.
So we busied ourselves making her bed.
And after placing her "You Are My Sunshine" pillow
and her NY GIANTS teddy bear,
I got in my car.
And I left her there.
I may have cried a little.
