In Limbo...

November 14th, 2006 at 06:14 am

17 days until we have an empty nest. In the meantime MD has arrived home to spend the time with her younger sister.

So food is going to be costing a bit more in those 17 days.

I have harvested lots of local apples and baking a lot of apple crisps!

I bought halloween candy for 75% off Long's Drug Store. Total of 126 bags for just over $100.00. It's the yummy stuff too like Snickers, Milky Way, Reese's.... All going to my SIL and friends in Iraq.

It's going to be interesting to see how low our food budget can get with just the two of us.

I feel like like is really starting over at almost 49 years old!

    We're 48 and now empty. It is a little hard at first--so quiet, and the reminders! Then it gets a lot easier. Hubby and I enjoy our time together in the evenings and on weekends. We have talked a lot more to each other than we have in years. It's like another whole chapter. And now we do a lot of things for each other. Course, we can go see ours any time we wish cos they are less than a day away. And DD left behind her animals, so there is the patter of feet here every day.

    Sending the candy to Iraq is sweet (pun intended)! Never thought of that.

    What an unselfish thing for you to send all that candy to Iraq.
