My mother read yesterday’s post and sent me a picture of Meg as she looks today before she packed her away for their own move. Meg’s hairstyle looks a bit windblown, which might explain why she’s missing her mob cap. But there she is in her Betsy Ross dress. That’s not her original hatbox. That one fell apart long ago. This is a box from a Christmas Panettone. But it’s very much in the spirit of the original.
We are heading to NY tomorrow to look for apartments and are feeling very morose about it. Change is hard. Big change even more so. I am trying to remember how miserable and uncertain I was when we left the city for this house. But AJ learned to walk here. And got his first bed. And played baseball in the yard. We knew it wouldn’t be easy to do what we’re doing.
