It's sad when...

... you meet your husband at the tire store to get the tires rotated on both vehicles at the same time so you can have a conversation, the first you've had in weeks

... you wake up at 7 am on the weekend and are excited because you slept so late

... you are so thankful because no one has thrown up that day

... you have to start picking up the house 3 days before the maid comes so she can clean

... the house is trashed again 15 minutes after you arrive home the day the maid cleans

... you have to involve extended family members in your weekend plans just because the two of you have more than 2 places to be at the same time

... you fall asleep on the couch 15 minutes after the kids finally give up the bedtime fight and you wake up an hour later and realize you still have several hours worth of chores to do

But the saddest part of all is realizing that in such a short time from now, your kids will be grown and not need you anymore.

Ech - you should have stopped after the comment regarding chores. I hate when you go all mushy on me. :)

Oh, don't worry. After the kids leave home and discover the cruel realities of life compared to how good mom and dad were to them they will want to move back home.

You win. That's the saddest of all.
