Awww. I know. It's hard on so many levels. It seems so empty when they leave. Quoting: Nine's
No more testosterone or estrogen dripping from the ceilings. No war whoops when a favorite team is winning. No unforgotten soda cans tucked in an inconspicuous place for you to trip over. No crusted plates in the sink. No early morning or late night sounds that make you think someone is breaking in...or out. No one in the bathroom 23 hrs. out of 24. No washing machine running 4 hrs. a day. Always hot water available. It's miserable.
Seriously, it's the deafening quiet, the memories, the hugs, the hope, the worry. The lonely piece of cake that's leftover that you were hoping they'd eat. It's everything. Like they take your life force with them. Be assured though, you're in their heart whether they are with you or away.
You know that. Duuuah. Well, I gotta say something. HAHAHAHA!!
Sorry, didn't go too far. Had to switch loads.
That's it exactly!!! No more toilet seat up, and the surprise when you sit in the dark! No more arguements, no more contests to see who laughs so hard they snort first. We have such a cool family, can't you tell!
I can't tell you how much food I've thrown away since Sept. I'm so used to cooking for an army, I can't cook for two, let alone just me.
Thanks, Nine's and Flav. I know you guys have been through this all already. It wasn't near as hard with the oldest two as it is with the last kid. My mom, bless her, started to giggle. I asked to please don't poke today. I miss her too. I'm just having a homesick meltdown, I guess. Thankfully, I know when I get this way, I'll be ok after a good night's sleep.
Change of subject...Nine's, check out the new coaster for CP in the summer. Not going on that one either!!! I know they took out the Wildcat, but I don't know what they'll do with the rest of the rides in the front. They better not mess with Cedar Downs!!
