20 months ago I headed to Texas and left my wife and daughter in NY so my daughter could stay in school there, sell our house, etc. It's been a LONG time. I've jokingly called it my 20 month exile, but that's over.
It's been a huge monetary and personal sacrifice having to maintain two households 1,800 miles apart, but it was worth it for all of us. My daughter begins school this August at the University of Texas at San Antonio's Honors College as a Biology major.
I look forward to our new life and all the opportunities, adventure, and fun ahead.
