I'd take it as a good thing, since they're not traumatized in any way or amount with him gone.

I remember when I was a kid and my dad had to go for a month for some job-thing. My mother was seriously traumatized not to have him home at night. She rigged burglar alarms for all the doors and the milk chute (the milk chute!?! Our dolls couldn't even stand up or lay down in there!) with cords leading all over the place. We'd have to detangle everything to get breakfast and go to school. It was really silly. She told him emphatically that he was never doing that again when he got home--and he never did. Anytime he had to go, she went with him. Ever have a babysitter for a solid week? Not fun.

Anyway, I'd take it as a good thing--unless they're not happy to see him when he gets back.

Well, our burglar alarm is both more high tech and less.

We have the standard ADT screech-and-call-the-cops alarm which get set every night and the far more low-tech German Shepherd to bark like she's going to bite your face off model who has been sleeping beside my bed instead of locked in her kennel since he's been gone.

But really, I guess I'll take it as a good thing. Though, if I had to be solely responsible for doing all the driving, all the shopping, all the homework help and most of the cooking for the long term, something would have to give.

Luckily, I have a 19-year-old who is home while he's waiting for his job training program to start up and he does the housecleaning. Now, if only he had a drivers license...

We have a similar system ADT and 3 dogs. Lilly would bark and but, but she's only one sooo... Molly would mostly just bounce and lick. Toby on the other hand? Yeah, he'll rip you in 2 if he thinks you're a threat to his girl.

Oh, I just saw, it's a joint tour with Def Leppard. Nifty.
Well, have fun

I had an apple fritter for breakfast this morning. Much better than a donut, y'know.

I had to go sub at a different store about a 1/2 hour away too early this morning, so no time for a healthier breakfast. Tomorrow I will indulge in better food.

But, yeah, fritters are 100000 times better than donuts. I'm blasphemous all over the place.

I think I finally worked out an outline for a new project. My daughter and I are gonna work on it together. We're gonna do it where we swap chapters, chapter 1 from my character's POV and chapter 2 from her characters POV and go from there. I still have some details to work out and we're not starting until the Summer when she's done with school work. But it's something to look forward to.
