Brandon is moving out (boo hoo!). He's found a 2 bedroom townhouse to rent near Douglas & Rock. Since he works just east of there, he'll be able to walk to work most of the time. He gets his keys on Friday, Sept. 14, and move-in date is set for that Saturday. Brady is going to help him move.
With his plans made, we went back out to Ashley Furniture on Saturday (Kaitlin and Corby went to Walmart instead). He bought 3 stadium-seating-type recliners, a king-sized bed, and a sofa table that matches the pub table he bought last week. We are giving him our blue sofa & love seat from the living room. He's got 3 floors to furnish: basement includes laundry room and rec room; main floor is the living room w/dining area, kitchen & 1/2 bath; upstairs are the 2 bedrooms and a full bath. He's going to put his TV and chairs in the basement, and our old furniture on the main floor. We've still got the old coffee table and end table that they had in Manhattan, so he can use those too.
He wants to go ahead and buy a washer & dryer since he has hookups, but the other things he needs/wants he can pick up as time goes on. It's also city-wide garage sales on Sept. 29 so he could probably pick up a few more things there.
I'm going to miss him SO much, but I'm SO proud of him. Out of college for a year, has a great job, has paid off his credit card and one of his school loans, bought a new car, and is now ready to spread his wings. A great young man!
