Oh yeah, there are. She is staying in a dorm with two other girls this year. Not getting an apartment/house yet. Thank goodness!!! Scary enough having her so far away from home.

Worse how? My problem is that I missed her so much, but this summer has been a challenge with her back home. 19 years old and doesn't think house rules apply to her.

Hard to treat her like an adult when I keep thinking back to the day she was born and the first time I saw her. crycry

No....I mean when they leave for a longer while(3-4 years or so) and then something happens(lost job, bad relationship) where they need a place to stay for a while(months). At this point you have become very used to peace and quiet, normal adult hours etc and all of sudden there is the young person in the house, in and out at all hours, phone ringing etc. Once you get used the empty nest, it is kinda nice cool

My boy is 14 and many inches taller than me now but I still think of him as just a little boy. I know he hates it! I know it's so cliche to say but they really do grow up wayyy to fast. frown

My daughter will be three in November. We picked her up in Florida the day before Christmas eve in 2005 and she had been two months premature. At six weeks old (When we got her) she weighed just 5lbs 2oz. Now she's growing up, talking, running is in the norm for her age. I still remember when I could put her head in my hand and her toes didn't reach my elbo. They do grow fast, I'm just loving the ride right now. Especially since I can do no wrong and am everything in her eyes. I know that changes, but it's awesome while it lasts.

My daughter just turned 20 and I know what you mean by house rules. She's a great kid but somethimes I am ready for her to get her own place, other times I cant stand the thought of her leaving. I have two little boys 5 & 6 she's fantastic with them. They are really going to miss her when she does move out.

i have a 23 year old stepson at home and all he does if hes not working is sit in front of a computer screen with earpiece and play these dang games. you need to pry him off the chair with dynamite to get him to help around the house. madmad they should make them illegal. otherwise hes a good kid. doesnt party, so not so bad, but those games drive me up a wall. like thats the only thing in life to do. madeekcrazy

We too are empty nesters, but we really missed my daughter and her family coming up for the summer. It is really weird when either my daughter or son come to visit. At least they have children of their own and the house rules really aren't necessary anymore, but they try to have the grandkids follow the "house rules" now. Just because they have different rules at home, now they have to follow Grandpa and Grandma's rules. We are real tough!!! Like Mom how come we couldn't do that, but the grandkids can??? grin

And no Glenn, you aren't in charge this weekend with the ladies all at the GTG.

Oh yea Tom, my daughter gets away with a lot more than we ever did growing up around my folks. My Mom did daycare when I started junior high and those kids got away with a lot more than we did.

My husband (the step-dad) says that my kids get away with way too much. When he was a kid, he got away with nothing (yeah right!!)

I am very fortunate that overall my kids are good kids. I today's world, you try to raise them right, but so much of it is outside influences.

Yeah I know - I've heard some of the stories too. The firecrackers in the pocket of his shorts that went off was a good one. Funny, but he still hasn't learned.

I think he was a little lonely this weekend. I just got back from the womens GTG at Osakis. What a blast!!! Can't tell the details - but grandma wouldn't approve.

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
