Mother Hen

Posted by on 27 July 2008

I’m feeling a bit of the “empty nest” today without my chick here.  I was disappointed when I got up and there was no noise coming from down the hall.  Usually when that happens, I look in her room and see her still all snug and comfy in bed.  But, not today.  She’s at my parents housing filling their days with her smile and lots of noise.  They all love it so much and really enjoy this time.  I enjoy it too.  This is my “break”….time for me and time to get caught up on the things that need to get done.  We always say “I wonder if this will be the last summer she wants to go”.  She says she’s always going to go.  I don’t think she’s going to get outside much since it’s in the 100’s, but usually she goes to the greenhouse and garden, beats the stump up, chases wild animals and plays on her swing hung between 2 huge trees.  She’s also got grandpa where she wants him and he gets out his riding mower and lets her go down the road.  Even I don’t get to do that!!

Anyway, I was reading blogs today.  I’m trying to get caught up on what I missed being gone all day yesterday.  I came across this cute little quiz.

    Me too!

    I’m also enjoying a few hours home alone! Quite a pleasure for me! LOL Doesn’t happen often, that’s for sure.

    I had a feeling you’d be about the same as me!!

    I do enjoy the time, but I miss her too. Everyone tells me “but you only have ONE kid”. Ah well yeah, but you can’t imagine how ONE can fill your days. Doesn’t happen often, so I have to make the best of it.

    And I’ve been warned that I better be ready for school to start!! LOL

    Oh, I’m counting down the days until school starts. Then I will have the house all to myself. LOL!

    By the way, I’m a Gentle Mother Hen too.

    LOL Laura, I’ll probably never have the house to myself again. That is, except for her vacations to my parents house!!

    YAY!! The 3 blogging stooges ride again!!
