Back to the Way it Was

Life is getting back to the way it was.  The way it was before The Baby came home for a few weeks.

There are good things about this of course.  I get the house clean, I sew, I manage to get outside and water the plants!

There are also some bad things about this.  There is no one here to laugh with, bake with, make funny faces with, etc.   Yes, I laugh with Big.  Sometimes I make faces with Big, but usually behind her back!  But Big has a busy year and will be on the road more often than not.

We all had such a good time while The Baby was here.  We played games, watched movies, took walks and generally enjoyed each other's company.  There is a certain fullness when The Baby is home.  I think all "empty nesters" must feel this way.

I am proud of our daughter.  She is such a wonderful young adult and I know she will make a difference in the world.

She will be home again at Thanksgiving and the wonderful craziness will be here again, until then, I have some cleaning and sewing to do!

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

Pin It Now!

Sounds like you had a ton of fun with the Baby. I understand you being sad when she leaves but she'll be home again soon and until then you can plan all manner of fantastic things to do on her next visit.
