Empty Nest

My children range in age from five through nineteen, yet I find myself home alone:
  1. Lauren drove to Richmond for the weekend,
  2. David is working at the bike shop,
  3. Daniel is teaching tae kwon do,
  4. Joseph and Len are vacationing (vet conference for Len) in Utah,
  5. Marianna is shopping with Grammy, and
  6. Rebecca just left for a swimming pool play date.
What to do with all this freedom?

It unfolded rather than being planned, so I have no great expectations. I'll enjoy a relaxing lunch and catch up in the kitchen (dishes, gyros for the freezer, biscuit mix, coffeecake and sausage casserole prep for tomorrow, etc.) while listening to a recorded book.

Dull for some, but homey and satisfying enough for me. Besides, Daniel will return soon, and this historic event will be merely a memory. ;-)
