Moving On

100_0089One of my best friends is moving tomorrow. She is off to pursue her dream of flying and is moving to upstate NY to make that dream come true. I met Marnin nine years ago during our first year of teaching. We really started to bond when we volunteered to teach a weather class together in summer school. She soon became one of my best movie buddies and I found myself spending quite a lot of time hanging out at her house. Three years ago Marnin moved from our quaint little town to a larger town about 45 minutes up the road (that’s me driving, it takes her less than 30). She got a different teaching job at a closer school. I was worried that this would hurt our friendship, but no, even through the gas crisis of last summer we still saw each other about once a week. Since we were both teachers it became very common for me to camp out at her house for a few days because I was just to lazy to drive home. Yesterday a group of us got together for a good-by lunch at Marnin’s favorite restaurant. At the end of the lunch I had to give back the key to her apartment that I have had for the past 3 years. One of our friends commented that it was like the end of Friends and I got a bit teary. The boyfriend is apparently waiting for me to lose it completely. I will be heading up to visit my dear friend in a couple of weeks. I have told the boyfriend to be prepared for me to be an emotional wreck.
Good Luck Marnin. Happy Flying!
