HUGS! Yes, I'm sure it is better for her to be out on her own. Sometimes, I think this current generation is greeting impaired! lol I've had the same experiences with my kids and step kids. I often feel that I'm just talking to myself with no response from them.

I have 2 college degrees after attending school off & on for 24 years.

I don't want my daughter to move out. I just wanted her to stop treating her parents like roommates. She wouldn't say hello, Good bye, Good morning or Good night. It drove me nuts! Instead, she is leaving home. It is better for her NOT to live with us at 30, but we are sad she is leaving. I believe she was trying to feel autonomous, but that wasn't the way to execute it, by not acknowledging us in our own home.

I have three indoor dogs, a German Shepherd (9.5 years), and two wiener dogs (8.5 yrs. and 5 yrs). They keep me busy when I am not at work.

I love the taste of food, but I love the taste of life even better!

Thanks! It was hard; especially saying good-bye. Our oldest was 16 years and our youngest was 16 months. I wish I would have thought to write down their first and last names with the intention of finding them one day. Most of them would be in their 30's and 40's now. So long ago.....

Rose, I SO applaud you for that! Couldn't have been easy, but I'm sure they were so grateful to you for taken them in for the seasons that you did.
Eight kitties, nice! :) I've had five, at the most, at a time.:)
