I'm sitting here listening to the sons talking-catching up on games. We stopped and got pizza for dinner and then they carried S22s stuff in from the car and have been making plans for the week. As I said, I'm content to have all my chicks home for awhile. I'm happy that they are moving off into their own lives but it's nice to have them around, too.
H on the other hand is alone in his tiny space and as S told me, "bored to death" as he hasn't been able to work since the wrist surgery. He can't drive much, so is pretty much stuck. S19 is currently mad at him about something so he hasn't been visiting or calling/texting him.
As I said to S22: "I have to believe he's happy with his choice and this is the life he wants to live."
