Ten Years After – Volume 3 – Home Sweet Home
Chapter 24 – Angie Leaves for New Haven
The next morning Bette and Tina awakened and got up about 7:00 am. They showered and dressed for the day. They would skip the morning swim as they had things they wanted to do to prepare for Angie and Suzanne’s departure in the early afternoon.
Tina went and began the lunch. She decided that she would prepare salmon for lunch rather than the a rerun of the Thanksgiving dinner. Tina had prepared microwaveable plates of the Thanksgiving dinner and froze them so they could carry them to New Haven. Besides, Tina knew how much Angie loved seafood.
Bette had called Jim to let him know that the girls would have had a heavy lunch prior to boarding the plane and therefore would not be eating on the plane. Jim said that he and Dot had planned a heavy lunch as well and agree that there was no need for heavy meal on the plane. Jim and Dot would find a place for breakfast once they were in New Haven after they delivered the girls to their dorm.
Bette then began to pack the frozen meals Tina had prepared from the Thanksgiving leftovers. These would be packed in ice packs and could be heated up in the dorm room. Bette had asked Jim and Dot to help Angie and Suzanne get their box of supplies, food and luggage up to their dorm room. Since Jim and Dot were an older couple, they could more than likely get the rules bent enough to assist Angie and Suzanne.
Angie and Suzanne were finishing up their laundry and packing their bags. Daniel, Margaret and Mary went swimming.
Bette: Tina, I’m going to need your help to maintain a cheerful outlook at least until the girls leave this afternoon.
Tina: I know what you mean. They are not out the door and I am already missing Angie.
Bette: We have had a good week, haven’t we? I have enjoyed our baby girl being here.
Tina: Me too. Well, let’s get this done, so we can have a little time with her before they leave.
Bette and Tina put the lunch on the table right at 12:30. The family was quiet but happy.
