Yes, we have a little problem. It’s not Nick and me we’re just fine. I’m working on getting rid of this last bit of the cold – the lingering cough, but that’s not the problem. Nick has managed to keep a bit of spanking in our lives and that’s fun. Monday night he told me he was at the grocery store and saw a little something he couldn’t resist…
So with all this good stuff going on what is the problem? Our problem is our greatest blessing – Mollie.
Mollie really doesn’t like staying at her apartment all weekend alone when her roommate goes off. It was different when she was at college there was always someone around, something to do, now not so much. I would never tell my daughter she can’t come home when she is facing a lonely weekend – but to tell you the truth she is cutting into our kinky fun time. We’ve had a couple of interesting Saturday afternoons planned that changed because had company.
I love spending time alone, I always have. I stayed alone for the first time when I was sixteen and it was great. I lived alone for six years before I married and that was wonderful too. And while I love Nick to death, I never mind him heading off for a short golf weekend. Then again when I was talking about this to a blogging friend once she made the comment, “But you’ve never been alone, you have tons of people living in your head.” I guess that’s true between being an avid reader and daydreamer I guess I’ve always had friends around.
But Mollie doesn’t like to read and had already adamantly declared she will never write a book. She still hasn't found friends her age in her new town. She seems a little embarrassed to come home on the weekends but they seem like long lonely days to her and she ends up here.
Suggestion? I don’t think I could ever tell either of my children that they cannot come home if they’re lonely, but we’d like a weekend to ourselves too.
