There comes a point in many people's lives when they decide where they want to go to college.
I know it doesn't seem like very far away, but Idina got accepted into and settled for a college that was two hours away. Aside from the past couple years, Idina and I had practically been joined at the hip all our lives. Where one of us went, the other went. Our friends even remarked that we were sort of a "package deal" - if someone became my friend, they became Idina's friend, and vice versa. So you can imagine my pain at having Idina pack up to move to a college that's two hours away.
Still, I knew that the day would come someday, so as Idina made preparations for college, I readied myself for being the only child in the house. It would be weird, but it had to happen sometime.
