It's hard saying goodbye. Though, I am confident I did the right thing and I'm leaving when it feels right too. I will return to Ohio often to make sure my Grandma's comfortable. There was some family pressure for me to stay, but I know my Grandma better than most and she would have wanted me to continue on with my own plans. A positive out of this situation is that my cousins and I are now really close. They made me feel at home eating dinner together and drinking Great Lakes Christmas ale.
Eleven hour drive ahead of me. Thank God for news radio, coke plus, and orbit's pink gum.
