Just list who or what you miss the most who is no longer in your life. It can be a person or a pet, a company, a relationship, a car, a possession.

At this time in life, I miss my dog Molly the most. She was a black lab that I had to put down last summer. I have her photo on my screensaver and I see her every day. I have only a few videos of her but I watch them from time to time.

She was the type of dog who loved to please us. We rarely had to reprimand her. One of my favorite memories of her is seeing her swim out into a lake and have my other two labs fall in line behind her, like a mother duck guiding her babies.

I often miss the son who does not live with me. I don't get to see him enough, but I am grateful he isn't too far away.

Sad That stinks. Do you still communicate though over the internet? I know it's not the same if you do. Maybe you can get a lot of fun time in when she comes back. Smile

Glad he lives close by. Both my kids are far away. It's been many years since I've seen my son and close to a year since I saw my daughter and grandson. Sad You are lucky to having such loving sons. Smile

Thank you, LM. As crazy as they can drive me, sometimes, lol, (well that happens with most people who live under the same roof, right? lol), I do love them dearly, and I appreciate my relationship with them, and the relationships they have with one another. A mother always wishes that her children will grow up to be, if not super close, at least friends, and mine are both!

When my middle son moved out, I cried for the entire week end. Then I got so busy with my life I didn't think of it as much. I will tell you one thing. Otis did not like it at all, because he had to spend time alone. He is very spoiled by having people around him most all of the time. I was an "empty nester" for about five or six weeks, lol, before the revolving door started revolving again! haha!

Otis started acting up and doing things he never did before. Like one time I came home, and I thought someone had broken in. I had left the front coat closet slightly ajar, and when I came home there were coats all over the floor, door wide open. That long little guy had pulled almost all the coats down off their hangers! Can you imagine? lol! It must have been anxiety.

I also reacted in a funny way. Like a parent who is guilty from being gone from a child and tries to make up for it with treats and gifts and monetary things, I did the same with Otis, lol! I brought him a (cheap) toy almost every time I went out and came back in. lmbo! He had so darn many toys there for a while. haha!

One of the huge advantages of having my boys here with me is not worrying about who will care for my pets when I am not at home. Smile

Molly once jumped out a bathroom window. The window was up and she really just broke the screen. Still that was quite a jump to the ground. Maybe 4-5 feet. I think she was trying to find us. It's good for them to learn to be by themselves when they are young. After Molly died, Max urinated on the carpet which he never does. I started locking him in the kitchen with a gate up. I told him he had to stay in there when we left if he was going to urinate. I did that for a few days and it never happened again. It might have just been a fluke that day, but we always let him out before we leave. I think it was hard for him to be by himself. Now when we leave, we aren't gone long.

I miss being back home where my family is. Communicating by phone or email is not the same as communicating in person. I miss the friendly people back there. I miss the slow pace of a little town. I miss the lakes, the favorite places we used to go.
