    Well, my last kid got his own apartment last weekend, My wife and I have had our first week alone in the house now. Sure is quiet now. Still have 3 dog inside with us. Kinda sad about it tho. He's 21 and has a fairly good job with CAT. Oldest is a girl (26) finishing her masters degree this year but has her own place, Son(25) living in Chicago and still has a job if that means anything for the economy. Went through a divorce 13 years ago and kept my kids so I became the chief cook and bottle washer. Re-married 8 years ago to a GREAT woman. All 3 kids consider her their mom. I guess I'm a little more emotional than most guys about them leaving the house for their own life. I know it's part of life but it's still not easy, especially for the last one. All 3 really enjoy going fishing with me. I wish them the best and happiest life. Now, I want some grandkids.

    My youngest Daughter starts college in the Fall. It is starting to hit me that she will be grown and gone soon and it makes me sad. Good luck to you and your future.:006:

    My daughter moved out over 2 years ago to be with her boyfriend, (not happy dad) well we went out on for my birthday and my daughter asked if it would be ok to bring her cat home with here when she moved back, I thought it would be like a month or so thinking she and her boyfriend would work out the problems, that monday i walk into boxes, and a cat wrapping around my leg. I was about to take over that room as my own, so just keep in mind just your door is alway open,

    I've had my two oldest move back in once each but I think there on a good road to making good decisions. I do have both of their cat too..lol Neither one can have pets. Both have had a bad relationship too.

    LMAO Phil, I've heard that one from several of my friends. I have to admit I've felt that way before among other things. Do they ever take your advise before moving out???? "They have to make their own mistakes" I think I'm still blue in the face. Does it come off some day?...lol
