I’ll just keep my fingers crossed to see if what I write today gets uploaded to the website. The hilly terrain here in Morgantown can make using a WiFi Air Card a bit challenging. Kari’s new college house is on the side of a hill with the southern exposure uphill. This could make the link to the satellite obstructed (if I understand geosynchronous orbit correctly, that is).
We rolled in around two o’clock yesterday afternoon, after stopping by the mega hardware store for some supplies. We got right to work and had everything built, clean and in place around eight o’clock. Granted, there is some serious organizing still needed and I doubt we’ll get it done today because Kari loves her sleep. I’m hoping Sue will come back with her for a day or two and tidy up and put a polish on the place.
Our plans to hit the town last night we’re too much for me. I was tired! A handful of Kari’s friends were in town, so I gladly encouraged her to spend time with them while I slept. Sleep I did, too. With the absence of television and reliable internet service, it was my only choice. I grabbed a blanket and stretch out on the couch. I was out instantly and woke up at eight this morning, stirring only once when Kari and two of her friends arrived back.
Kari’s house is close to where Ryan was attacked. So close, in fact, that I can see the edge of the parking lot where it happened. I walked down to the spot where Ryan took his last thought and sat. That’s a story for another day though.
I miss him so much.
