2008 has brought many changes for Brenda and I.
I realized another one on this Monday morning just before leaving for the office.
It is a term I had heard of but not really experienced.
The term “EMPTY NEST” is a reality for us.
Here is a short list of things I have observed when it comes to the nest being empty.
A weeks worth of garbage fits in a cute little bag.
Finding a parking spot in the driveway is easier.
Backing out of your driveway no longer requires a stunt driver.
Cereal boxes in the pantry contain cereal.
A gallon of milk lasts a week instead of a day.
Restaurant take-home-boxes are still in the fridge the next day.
If you fall asleep watching TV, the same channel is still on when you wake up
The cordless phone is in its cradle and charged.
The TV remote control is where you left it.
Clothing is once again optional inside the house.
Brenda and I were discussing the years of raising two awesome kids last night and how it is really does take a lot of effort to do it right.
We are really blessed and proud to have two amazing adult children that are welcome and encouraged to hang with us anytime they want.
But please give me a heads up some I can hide the remote.
Everyday Bren and I pray Philippians 1:3 over our kidos.
