Letting Go

I took my son to college last Thursday.  Because this is a vocational college there are not dormitories on campus.  Housing has a few apartment complexes near to the school.  Near..Ha!  I specifically asked the housing person to provide my son with housing that is close to school and transportation since he does not drive.  It did not happen.

When receiving the keys for his apartment, housing said it was a new complex and not far.  Guess what?  It is over 4 miles away, it is not a new complex and it is not near any transportation!  UUGH!  My son was upset as was I.

Yesterday I emailed housing saying the same thing and I have not heard back.  I won’t hold my breath. I texted my son Sunday to see how he was doing.  The response, “This place sucks!”.  I have to agree with him.  It is hot, smoggy, not much to do there and his apartment is not in the best area.

He has lived with me for 19 years and it makes me sad that he is not happy.  It is hard enough adjusting to him not living here and it is even more difficult knowing he is not in the best of places.  I know both of us will get through this and it is not forever.  Only 3 months until Thanksgiving when he will break from school and come visit.  With that thought it makes not having him here a little easier.
