I think my folks are a little stunned at how quickly things are happening though they do have Beowulf for at least the next few days. I bet it will hit just how lonely and quiet the house is with him gone. I've decided it will be best to pick him up on Friday afternoon when I am all settled in my new place and I have the next day off.
I can't count the number of times I have heard my mom wish for a quiet house and to be left alone. I told her to be careful what she wished for.
I get internet access on Friday and I think I will be ebay-ing like mad. There are a few other things I'd like to get so rather than spending my time prowling the DI hoping that said item shows up, I'll just surf around online.
