Hmmmm......I want that peace and space that you speak of Diana, lol! We thought we would have it with DS leaving, but DD moved back in, and I had to relinquish my scraproom back to her. sigh.
Last night, DS said, "I love you mom". He's just so sweet. Saying "I love you" isn't common with him. He behaves lovingly, but his Aspergers makes it so that it doesn't occur to him to say such things out loud. In his mind, he loves us, we love him, so why waste time stating the obvious, lol.
It was sad when our oldest moved out, but it was due. He was definitely spoiling the nest. When DD moved out, I was writing a check for her dorm and said to DH, "Who says that money can't buy you happiness?", LOL! That child earned an A+ in spoiling the nest.
