MY HOUSE DEVOID OF CHILDREN
The house is completely deserted. My youngest son left yesterday for his apartment closer to his school which is at least three hours ride from our house.
My eldest son is in his own apartment also, closer to his school.
During the day, I am all by myself in the house and my dog Misty. I sleep during the day, because I work during the night. My wife is all by herself at night with my dog Misty.
We dont' have the same days off. I always tell my wife to see to it that she locks up the house at night while I am not yet at home. We live in a nice neighborhood, but it is nice to be safe and secure also, just in case.
I cook for two, and there's lots of left over. I cannot feed it to my dog. I prefer to feed her -- her own dog food, so that she wont have any bad breathe. At times I cook and then freeze it, incase the boys wants to come over and eat, there is always food available.
We have some family friends that returned back fro Las Vegas after two years there. They sold the house and now returned back to Aurora, Illinois close to their work. I offered my house for them to stay until they have the closing of their house end of Sept. '06. They are staying at Extended Stay America in the mean time. They said it will be too far for work and the kids school.
I just wanted my wife to have company, especially at night.
And so Auntie Patti Koh, it is really the time, in America wherein parents becomes alone and at times neglected and forgotten by their children. I hope it won't happen to me and my wife.
I miss the life back home.
I miss the noise and the traffic in the house.
Am I sick or what?
