Empty Nest-Dom

I can run around the house naked (you’re welcome for the visual; I dare you not to picture it! LOL)
I can come and go as I please without having to ask someone to move their car.
I can’t send them to the grocery store. (I know that sounds like it should be a con but I always sent them for something that I shouldn’t be eating/drinking so it’s a pro!)
I don’ EVER have to help with another science fair project EVER again in my whole life!
I don’t have a ton of laundry to do.
I don’t have to shop as often.
I don’t have to help with homework.
I don’t have to repeat a bazillion times “Clean your room/bathroom!” (But now I have to do it myself, this may end up on the con list.)

I miss their sense of humor.
I miss the sound of their laughter.
I miss the fantastic discussions we would have about the wildest, far out things.
I miss the way they would tease me. 
I miss them.

Just having a blue day.


  1. Yep, there are Pros and Cons... and peace in the house :)

  2. hope things are better today.

  3. Sorry its a blue day *hugs*
    Mine couldn't possibly be blue after reading number one on the pros... and if you thought hard enough, nor would yours. Or maybe you should do and see if it changes things ;)

  4. Call one of them! That really helps on the blue days. Or get texting. That's fun, can be done anytime and it's short so no one feels like "but I don't have time to talk right now, later okay". No guilt, no hassle.

  5. And they'll always come back to visit. Pro
