    His landlord called. The apartment is ready. He is moving tomorrow. I will be here alone with hubby. Mixed feelings there. Wish me luck. I know it is time he moved out. But it seems so sudden.

    "The cats in cradle and the silver spoon, little boy blue and the man in the moon."

    No, wait, that's about a dad and his son.

    Hold on a sec, let me think.

    "Baby come back, any kind of fool could see, there was something, in everything about you."

    No,no, no! That's about a guy wanting his girlfriend back.

    Wait, I have it!


    I'm moving out
    Me and my best friend Louise got it all figured out
    She's got the car and I've got the stereo
    I'm saving my dollars that used to be dimes
    Getting ready, ready for the time
    That this girl's gonna move out

    I can't wait, no I just can't wait
    All I know is that it's gonna be great and all my friends think we're so cool
    Monday morning we're signing the lease
    Wednesday we're getting our phone
    Friday night we're throwing a party going all night long

    :doubt: I don't know what it says about me as a mother but, when my last kid moved out, I was doing the happy dance and planning how I was going to turn her room into my office.

    Do not be so quick to discount political terror just because the annoying girlfriend is seemingly out of the picture.

    I know several people who adopted a child after all their kids moved out.

    I SO know that feeling.

    You sort of make your children the whole point of your life for decdes, and then POOF! your whole reason for being packs up and starts his or her own life and doesn't need you.

    You're suddenly free and let's face it, freedom is sort of something few of us are really used to.

    aw... thanks!... just hang in there.

    That was then and now... My daughter lives in San Francisco. My son and my d-i-l and my 3 g-kids are in D.C. And I'm in South Texas to be near my ailing parent.

    Wait a few years til you have g-kids. Spend as much time with them as you can. I sure do miss mine!
