narrated by: Lulu

Jake moved into his dorm this month with his dormmate and previous bandmate, Monroe. He’s taking a few classes to get him prepared for the college sciences and math as he’s a master of the written language, but not so much the practical. I’m not a master of any academics, so he’s got my admiration.

He’s been coming home more frequently then any of us expected. I think he’s homesick, although he’s playing it off that he’s here for me. I admit, being an only child at home isn’t the easiest gig. I’m glad to have his company on my days off.

Millett Family

working toward the future

narrated by: Hadley

Rosabella and Trey have been dating about two years, and while he may be interested in marriage, she isn’t quite there yet. Which is a relief to me, first because I don’t want to hunt a new roommate, and second, because neither of them can cook; she’d likely die.

Ethan Traver (68 years), Caitlyn (24 years), Rachael Darling (24 years), Thomas (5 years),

He preferred night time hours, all of his life. Growing up the oldest of three, he’d been expected to excel, to be a good big brother, but those things hadn’t interested Ethan. He slipped into the game world as a teen, and he never looked back. Cold turkey quits now and then to attempt saving his first marriage, to be a better Dad to his youngest, Caitlyn. But all in all, he didn’t see the harm in finding something he enjoyed.

Perhaps his first wife would have been happier, maybe still alive, if she’d found a hobby to enjoy.

narrated by: Lulu

Since graduating high school last year and deciding to stay at home instead of college, my life has been a constant question mark. Mom pesters me over lunch what my plans are for the day, the next week, the rest of my life!

narrated by: Caitlyn

Rachael and Lewis graduated with their relationship on the rocks. He got into a bar fight and barely managed to graduate; Rachael doesn’t have patience for that immaturity. So upon graduation, she moved in with me and my Dad, but his apartment was much too small for all of us. With the help of my Aunt Kenzie, I applied for aid as a single Mother, and was able to buy my own house.

I really wanted Thomas to have room to play and a yard to call his own. I know my dog, Bazooka is thrilled to have the fenced in yard too.
