An empty nest suits some birds just fine. I love my kids, but oh man I cant wait to not live in the mess of children-or my husband. I cant remember what its like to be alone. What its like to not have every surface sticky. What its like to not have 5 other people flinging everything they own all over my house. What its like to do what the f*** I want. To spend money on me. Its been decades. But soon as the youngest hits college, I’m out of here. So help me God, 10 more years and I will never scrub another persons shit off the toilet, ever again.
