Every now and again, life shows us why. Why we work so hard. Why we sacrifice so much. What is really important in life. You see, this weekend my wife and I became empty nesters.
I thought that it would be easy. A shake of a hand and a hug and a “See you this weekend.” Oooooooh…. That part went great. We moved son #3 into his dorm in the early afternoon. Excitement was in the air as we pulled into his complex.
Say what? You call these dorms?
All I’ve got to say is that it’s awfully quiet around the house now. And the food that we bought on Saturday is still in the pantry. And the TV is off more than on. Mom and Dad got to play at the casino Monday and Tuesday night. The house was dark when we got home. Meg and Anne – now I understand.
