Ten Years After – Volume 2 – The Move
Chapter 34 – New Haven to Redondo Beach
The next morning, Bette and Tina got up and showered and packed their bags and readied themselves for their long journey back to the west coast. But before that was to start, they needed to return Angie and Suzanne to their dorm at Yale.
Bette and Tina checked their purses to make sure they had their identification and wallet as well as their airline confirmation numbers. Their cell phones had been on their chargers all night and were ready for use. Bette went and pulled Tina into a long and loving hug.
Bette: How are you doing this morning?
Tina: I’m a whole lot better than I was last night. I’m ready to face this day and deliver our daughter to Yale University and then go home.
Bette then kissed Tina and held her for a few more moments. They then headed for the hotel restaurant. They found a table which would hold the six of them and asked for coffee immediately.
Bette: The food we had last night; it was rather good wasn’t it.
Tina: Yes, it was. I thought the broccoli was exceptional. We have had several really good meals on this trip. Everything was good in New York. And look how much we accomplished.
Bette: Yeah. We got the apartment packed; we closed on the sale of our New York apartment and we have moved our daughter into her dorm room.
Tina: And we managed to go to the theater, have a picnic in Central Park, see one of the best art museums in the world, visit the Statue of Liberty and the National Memorial to 911.
Bette: And we did it all with our children and Mom.
Tina: Well, I’m ready to get back to Los Angeles. I’m ready to move into the next phase of our lives. I’m ready to move into our new home and start working in my new studio.
Bette: Yeah. Work for me starts day after tomorrow. When is Daniel’s first day of school? Wednesday?
Tina: Yeah. I guess he and I will spend the day together. I plan to get in some of my supplies to start my work on Tuesday. It is supposed to be move in ready. Jim is supposed to have finished moving in all the furniture. I think the computer equipment will delivered and installed on Tuesday.
