Empty Nest Syndrome - Bring It On!!!

There's been an advertisement on the TV lately about preparing yourself for the time when your kids leave the nest - Well, I've been prepared time and time again but this weekend my son is moving out for the last time.   He came for a few weeks and stayed 9 months.  I'm very proud I've kept it together and not lost my cool too often so we can part on good terms haha. 

leaving home cartoons, leaving home cartoon, leaving home picture, leaving home pictures, leaving home image, leaving home images, leaving home illustration, leaving home illustrations
No more Boy smells.. farts and dirty socks and cigarette smoke drifting through the open windows from outside.  It'll only be MY mess anywhere and I will onlyh have to clean up after ME!!

I've had everything stuffed in my bedroom and my sewing room for 9 months and I am getting very claustrophobic.  So now I can spread out again and have the girls around for a sew in... and make a mess in my sewing room and SHUT the door!!   Yeehaa....

As much as I love him, we'll be way better friends when he lives somewhere else!!

And today was my late Dad's birthday.  Funny how things happen on a coincidental day but I've been missing Dad so much lately. Sometimes I just need a hug from my Dad and I think I've had one..

I know how you feel....let's just leave it at that.

I am sure you had a wonderful relationship with your day and so you have a ton of sweet memories. Even tho a hug would be nice.

You must tell me how it feels again, cos I know nothing about 'empty nest' syndrome.
I would love to catch it!
