All have summer jobs and two of the kids own their own cars, so they're extremely independent and will often sleep over at my wife's house in town or at a friend's house. We much prefer they stay where they are rather than risk returning home late at night.
In particular, my son spends much time at his friend's cottage on an offshore island and it could be risky for him to drive the boat across the channel late at night. Strong winds can whip up meters-high waves in minutes.
All of this (partial) solitude just reinforces my resolve to find some more friends or acquaintances and to make more of an effort with the few that I already have. My social life can no longer just revolve around my children. I'm still turning down multiple hookup offers on squirt.org because since my return from DC, I'm just not interested in the guys who are messaging me!
|My son's dog, Dexter, is nearly two years old. We think he's a |
border collie cross but don't know for sure since he came from
the dog pound. A sweetie!
This is not a problem; she's a sweet little dog who only stops yapping when she is sitting on your lap .... which is all the time.
So... here are the dogs in my life:

old and his grandparents include poodle, bichon, Chihuahua and Scottish
terrier, among other breeds.
