It was 10:30 AM when I flew out of the nest to make way for Sarah’s movie. (Fortunately, the film crew did not need MY bedroom, which
allowed Henry to come home from work and relax before dinner.) According to the location manager, the only areas to be filmed were our entry foyer, living room and Sarah’s bedroom. When Henry returned home, he chatted with the producer and enjoyed a glimpse of our smiling daughter, Sarah, basking in the glory of stardom, being fussed over by hair and make-up people— literally the center of attention, bathed in spotlights and cameras. I, on the other hand, made it my business to stay clear of the nest for the full 12 hours. In preparation for my self-imposed exile, I posted my blog a day early and enjoyed being outdoors on a picture-perfect Friday.
However, next week our son will be staying with us in the new den/guest room (that used to be his). Will he pack up more of his books and clothing to take to California, or will he leave everything behind? Henry and I are going away for Labor Day weekend, allowing Max to live alone in the family nest for most of his visit. I wonder what his room will look like when we return. Will the new den resemble a college dorm room? Stay tuned.
