The Hottest Summer and Both Kids Have Moved Home. Kill Me.

Hotter Than Satan's Kitchen!

Here in NC, it’s hotter than Satan’s kitchen! It’s probably hot where you are too but add 100% humidity and, well, we have moisture every freaking where. I have asthma so I can’t breathe and just walking to the mailbox, I feel like I’m gonna pass out. Right there in my driveway. Where all my neighbors would just drive by and say, “why is our crazy neighbor laying in her driveway? Doesn’t she know it’s super-hot outside?” Yep. Welcome to my ‘hood.

Add the super-hot weather to the fact that the dog wants me to play outside with him ALL THE TIME. AndΒ you can see why I’m in a bad mood all day. But did I tell you my news? BOTH MY KIDS ARE LIVING AT HOME AGAIN! Yep. Didn’t I write a post a few years back saying once they leave, they stay gone? Did I just dream that?

Thing 2 is a college kid and of course I have to let him live at home till he goes back for the next year. I would be an awful mom if I didn’t. Or a more awfuler mom. Yes that’s a word. I just made it up. And Thing 1 decided to move back for a month since his lease was up at the other place. His plan was to live at home while he looks for another place. His new roommate plans didn’t work out and now he’s home for longer. Oh, you know I am charging rent to that one. I think I will text him and ask him to pick up some half-n-half on his way home from work. I could turn this around for my benefit.

What’s the problem you ask? First, we live in a small house. Have been here for about 25 years. The thought of packing and moving drives me to drink. But lately I’ve been thinking we are defiantly going to move. Soon. Our small house now has 2 huge men besides Big Daddy and one large dog.

I used to have a home office to work out of. That’s now become the catch-all room again. And to top it all off, my oldest kid has been drinking my booze. I am sure of it. He might say that’s not true that maybe I’m just drinking more, but honestly let’s blame him for now.Β 

Don’t get me wrong. I love my family. But Big Daddy and I had gotten very used to “empty nest” life. Now we are in limbo. And they have started asking me, “what’s for dinner” again. Can I make it just a few more months? Maybe I would be a more tolerable mom if the heat index wasn’t 1000 degrees. Because cooking and doing laundry in a heatwave can make the best mom a pure T bitch. (Southern Slang)

Can you relate? Or are you one of those moms that just loves your precious babies no matter what and would never be upset if they all came home to live with you again forever. Maybe you like waiting on them and cooking for them and doing their laundry. And yes, I could get them to do it all but they have jobs. I have a job too but I get to work from home. SO. I’m the house maid too. πŸ™‚


Not really complaining. It’s just the heat getting to me. I’m sure after a few margaritas and some Netflix time I’ll be fine. I’m dreaming of the day that my hubby and I pack up the house, sell it and move to one bedroom home. Or at least have a guest house in the backyard. We will just have to wait and see. In the meantime, check in on me on occasion. πŸ™‚

Till Next Time,

Love, Peace and Margaritas!

  1. LOL! I’m not one of those Mamas who want to cook, clean, and wait on their kids all the time. I served my time and was released for good behavior. After college, the answer is most definitely, “Oh, no you don’t.” In fact, we moved into an RV and travel full time so they can’t move back home! They are welcome any time, though, and we are good parents (like you) for extenuating circumstances. I’m sure the tequila slushies will get you through (but make sure someone else is making and bringing them to you poolside)! Keep drinking! LOL

      1. We love our one and only to pieces. That said, he lives 6hrs away and if he were to move home with his fiance until they find a place, there will be cleaning schedules, rotating cooking duties and laundry schedule. The liquor gets locked up, you’re old enough to drink then buy your own. I feel if you are old enough to use, it or drink it, you are old enough to replace it or clean it. Best of luck with those ‘boys’ and recruit Big Daddy as needed. Much ❀✌🍹

  2. You are nicer than I am. I would have had mine doing her own laundry and cooking for us, at least a fair amount, based on number of people. Mine got real good at cooking breakfast for supper…just saying. As one who also works from home, it’s been going on since 2006, I just had to let them get tired of not having clothes to wear and they find the machine. Mom used to do my laundry when I lived with them as an adult and I had to actually hide my dirty laundry and take it to the laundromat to get her to stop. Once she got used to me doing that she started having me take some of her bigger stuff. It was a pleasure and she was happier. Mom got to where she did not like to cook and I begged her to let me take over. Dad was so picky that he could not be let in on our secret. I would cook supper and he would think mom cooked. We were all happy about it and when mom passed away Daddy was surprised how much I could cook like her. I don’t know if it’s just easier with girls, but I wish you well in this.

  3. Of course I can understand even though mine are 11 and 14…those precious hours of solitude when they are at school are gone over the summer. πŸ™‚

    Hang in there. Blogging helps. πŸ˜‰
