I love my daughter, BUT....

  1. I took my daughter back to college today! YAHOO! I get to use MY little car now; we get to have our own schedule again; we don't need to be fully dressed coming out of the bathroom after our showers anymore; we can be noisy if we are passionate; we don't have to thump on the floor to wake her or yell at her to turn off her *#@& alarm--- we've got our sanity back (until she comes home again)!

    :hatparty: :roll :roll

    It's fun being empty nesters! (Sorry, kids, but all of your folks will feel this way when you leave home too!)

    Mines going back Sunday and then I'll finally be able to see the floor in her room.

    Lynne, I never even TRY to go in my daughter's room when she is gone--we just shut the door and leave it (and I'm glad her room is in the basement!).

    You mean there is a FLOOR under there? I do remember putting down a tile floor there once; and I remember buying an area rug for that room; but I doubt if I've seen either since !!

    Hee hee!!! I cant wait to move out. I'm a little scared to be off on my own, but excited at the same time. My parents will be happy I presume.

    My Mom and I were very close, and she cried her eyes out when I left for college. She called me every morning to gab before she went to work and we continued that until she died. She always wanted to know when I was coming home next and called me 20x on the weekends I didn't.

    I'm sure my Dad was doing cartwheels, though!

    I have to admit that I've cried when my dtr went off to university. She comes home a lot of weekends, but it was still sad to send her back after Christmas break was over.

    Of course, she took my little car WITH her, so hubby and I still have to share (ewwww - hate that!) and stuff like that. I would appreciate more convenience if she'd gone without the Saturn. LOL

    I love my dtr but...I wish I didn't have to include her dirty thongs in the laudry, or as I like to cal it butt floss. I mean how exactly can you pick those things up so you aren't touchoing a string that has been in a disgusting place?? I mean sure I used to clean her poopie diapers but....well,when she goes off to college, I'll probably cry and wish I had dirty butt floss to wash again.

    I have five kids. Three in college, two out of town. One in town but he moved out. In september it will be #4 out in dorm housing out of town. I cannot wait. Having teenagers helps you be ready to have them gone for a while. lOL.

    I love my daughter too and cried the first 2 times she went off to college but after this break and smiled. It's kinda nice to choose what you want to watch on tv without having to listen to MTV all day long. THe laundry and cooking are less also. She still calls alot but I am enjoying being an empty nester.
