This-n-That Thursday

Even when they're home, you're still in an empty nest:
  • Since The Bird is at sea, Augie is doing his best to entertain me.
  • His strong work ethic is getting in my way.
  • Plus, he won't go shopping.
  • But, he does like to eat.
  • Too bad I don't cook any more.
  • Or go to the grocery store.
  • Meanwhile, The Bird can email me from her ship.
  • She loves it, and will be in Barcelona next week.
  • I feel more lonely than I did when I dropped them off for their first year.
  • But, I will be having a vicarious trip to Barcelona....
  • Thank Goddess for my friends, my friends, and my friends.
  • Speaking of friends, I'm hatching a plan.....
  • And in other news, I think I have diagnosed myself with every disorder you can possibly have.
  • And I'm serious.
How are you today? Got anything for me to do?

Well, if it will make you feel better:

My 46 y/o daughter stays with me a lot. She still doesn't clean her room, still uses my makeup, steals my toothpaste, expects me to cook since I'm the mama, watches me clean, etc etc. Feel better now? LOL

"How are you today?" Pooped.

I don't want you to be lonely.

Yes, I have something for you to do. Have lunch with a friend or two or three and enjoy a glass of wine. Or two. Or three? Maybe not three :)

If you want whining, you've come to the right place! Went to physical therapy yesterday for the back muscle that I pulled or strained or really, really pissed off some EIGHT WEEKS AND ONE DAY ago. I'm so sick of it hurting.

That's where I am. :-)

I know your pain all too well. I've read 8 books in a week when I have far better things I SHOULD be doing. However, I need to be entertained & there's no one around to do that, so I read....

TSannie said...

Well, I'm here!

My son asked me to make a sandwich for him the other day and I just laughed! I keep self-diagnosing myself too, probably not too smart of us, haha!
