Outline Of Things To Come
The kids and I will move into our new place at the end of this week. School transfer packets and immunization records have been requested. A reasonably priced apartment has been secured. The Dino boys and Mouse are making their adieux to their peers. Ma Protosaur has moved into the Dino Nest and is teaching her grandchildren remedial life skills, that they may assume new responsibilities in this new phase of their lives.
Dino Spouse and I have agreed on an initial separation of three months or so, in which time he may get to know our new environs gradually and train his mother for greater independence. Once he’s ready, the idea is that they will also relocate to NoVA, where he will acclimate her to her new surroundings. Eventually this will lead to a glorious reunion of the nuclear Dino clan.
Her letter of renunciation to my employer was returned to our post box for insufficient address information. I have heroically refrained from tearing it up, opening it, or hand-writing her a detailed explanation of how to address letters for US post. Instead I am giving it to Dino Spouse to return to her with my compliments.
