I wish I had been drinking last night.  I woke up with a headache from hell.  I can’t breathe through my nose, my ears hurt & I’m dragging ass.  No gym again today.


Today is the first step to an empty nest.  Greg closes on his house today.  I don’t remember if I told you or not—his realtor screwed up & never scheduled the closing.  Erin is meeting him at the house at 6:00 PM—the closing is at 3:00. 


I gave them a bunch of cleaning stuff to get them started…You know, stuff like paper towels, toilet paper, Windex, Comet, dishwasher detergent, etc…They are going to paint their bedroom tonight.  Tomorrow my mother is going to go help them clean carpets—can I tell you how disappointed I am that she gets to see Erin’s new home before I do? 


I’m more sad about this than I want to admit.  I want to cry but I’m at work.  I will not cry here!


Tomorrow we take Joe home.  I can’t wait to get him out of my house.  He’s constantly moving & I’m tired of telling him to quit running in my house.  Yesterday I got home from work & he told me that he walked on his hands from my living room to his bedroom—approximately 50 feet. Some of this was down my narrow, picture-lined hallway.  The pictures are of John’s ancestry & more than 150 years old.  I asked him what he would have told John if he had fallen into one of these frames & ruined it.  He literally just stared at me.  I wanted to punch him in the face.  Dumb ass.  Marie would probably say this is a boy thing but I would bet that it’s a boy thing that she has told her boys she would kill them over.  lol  Good riddance.  I wish him every success but I can’t do this anymore.


I commented on Wendy’s breakfast photo that her breakfast looks like what I had for dinner last night.  We took Joe to Cracker Barrel.  I love their huge breakfasts.  This is why I am not losing weight.  I am maintaining so I can’t complain but I should quit this crap & lose if I want to compete in August (which I’m still on the fence on).  Even if I don’t compete I want to lose 5 more lbs to get back into some of my older clothes…I found a box of nice pants that I wore 6 years ago that are still very much in fashion (just plain khakis & such) —I weighed in at 140 then.  I think I will be able to wear them at 145 because I have more muscle weight now than I did then.


After everyone is out of the house I am going to CLEAN everything & create an office space, a guest room (Erin’s old room will stay decorated the way she has it), AND a craft room.  I’m so excited!

Hehe, walking on hands is actually standard boy operating protocol. Also NOT ALLOWED indoors!

I definitely feel your empty nesting pain, but I think once you adjust, it will be wonderful to be a couple with John again, you know? And Erin will be close by and you'll be able to visit. Plus one assumes you'll have a lovely wedding and some babies to look forward to soon!! And they WON'T be rockstars - thank jebus.

xox - feel better!

Yay! And sniffle. I can definitely see both sides of it. Remember the old saying: A son's a son till he takes a wife, a daughter's a daughter all of her life. :)

Hope the headache's gone!
