Where Did Everyone Go??

I look around this home of ours and it seems so empty. It certainly is NOT easy becoming empty nesters. Where did everyone go all of a sudden? Seems like just yesterday the girls were running around the house on the hardwood floors in their tap shoes and jumping on the couches pretending to be Olympic gymnasts. 'sigh'

It's freezing here which traps me in the house with these damn shoulders. The right shoulder is doing great now, but the left is now frozen. The cold weather makes them more painful, so I am cleaning out 17 years of junk in this place. Our poor garbage guy. I know he dreads coming down the street every Thursday wondering just how huge the pile of bags will be this week!

Blondie loves Chi Town. She would love it more if she found employment. I'm sure she will soon. She doesn't 'do' poor well.

As some of you know, DQ has been removed from our family now. She made her choice and after 14 years I am tired. I can't take anymore... this family cannot take anymore. I hope she makes it, but it will have to be on her own.

I guess after 24 years it is now time for Dweeb and I to start enjoying ourselves. It has never been just the two of us. Excuse me... I have to go play.

Nobody in the house? You know what that means. Sex in the kitchen!

Sorry to hear about DQ, but some people just can't be saved. She's going to have to save herself at some point.

Glad to hear things are going okay for Blondie, she'll find work soon I'm sure!

I'll be sure to keep you updated as Triforce and I start trying. That should get you appreciating your empty nest! ;)

@malathionman: and sex in the living room, dining room, hearth room, rec room, office, band room... hell, anywhere and everywhere! Like I said, time to play!!!!

@Sarah: Blondie will def find work soon, but boyfriend is doing well, so it will all work out somehow. I'll be by soon!

@ Miranda: You better keep us updated. Can't wait!!

Sorry to hear about DQ. I know this is sad, but I wonder if what you are throwing out is ebayable. It is a addiction!! Nice of you guys to throw K State a bone like that. I just hope they don't do that again for 24 more years.

Hey girl! Wow... long time no see!! And you'll probably be gone a while yet, what with all that sex going on, who's got time to BLOG??? hehehe

Take care!

Hope you are adjusting to your new world and your shoulders are better. You are strong and wise to not enable DQ in your world. It is the best for her in the long run. Folks who don't have addiction in their world, they don't understand. Blessings! You are in my prayers.

Hi, how are things? Sorry about DQ, I hope that she is doing okay! So what are you and Dweeb so busy "christening" all the rooms in the house that you can't post and update. How is Blondie?
