Grace brought Ms Lemz home as a kitten just before she went off to Carnegie Mellon four years ago.
Claire stayed here with me and went to college locally, but Claire and Grace are both out of school now, working full time. Claire has been looking for apartments with her longtime boyfriend, Paul.
Ms. Lemons is really bonded with Claire and her boyfriend, so she’s moving out with Claire in a few weeks.
I’ll miss Claire, as well as Ms. Lemons. Both have been my roomies for four years. I’ll have to visit them both at Claire’s place. Lemz will be happier with Claire and Paul, she’ll get more attention from them than from me, especially if I’m out of town.
Things change, our lives move on. I’m glad Claire and Grace have grown up, it makes me really proud as their father.
This is a new chapter for me, and since I’m traveling frequently I don’t want to have another pet that needs daily care. All the plants around my house are enough, thanks to Grace!
A few weeks ago I dropped $140 at Lowe’s to buy a bunch of flowers for the front garden.
I’m rocking various pentas, some mums, roses and some celosias. Bees love my front garden.
I even planted flowers around my mailbox.
I’m totally at peace being here solo, being healthy, having a lovely home.
I also have a ton of options… the future has not been written yet, but I’m optimistic.
