Happy Father’s Day

Posted by Nancy J. Cohen on June 19, 2011

We had the joy of having both our kids home for the weekend, and our daughter for the past week as her Staycation. It was a carefree time as we observed our adult children hit golf balls at the local driving range, dined at the Aruba Beach Café, shopped at Sawgrass Mills Mall, ate prime ribs at J. Alexander, played Wii sports games, watched movies, and more. We even sorted through some of the stuff in their bedrooms and added to the donation pile.

Time passes quickly when you’re having fun, and now they’re on the road. The house is empty, except for my husband and me. Already, I trekked through the house and took an armful of dirty towels to the laundry room, but I don’t have the energy to do the wash yet or to change their bed linens. Instead, I thought I’d get caught up on a few blogs, write one here for you and schedule my Wednesday blog at The Kill Zone.

One of these days, when life has settled down and the house is back to order, I’ll have to start my next book project. It’s too hard to concentrate right now after being away for a week. Then again, it’ll be nice to have some peace and quiet, to be able to watch my favorite TV shows, and to read at night. You get used to a routine. It’s healthy to shake it up now and then, but it’s comforting to get back to it. Or at least that’s what I tell myself so I don’t miss our kids too much.

Don’t forget to stop back here on Tuesday for my guest blogger, mystery author Anna Maclean.

Happy Father’s Day to those of you who celebrate!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful weekend. We had a nice, relaxing day here with both daughters home, which, although they’re both living here now, is still a rare occurrence. It’s nice hanging out with one’s adult children, isn’t it? No more crying jags, bloody knees, fighting over toys… 🙂

  2. That’s true, Allison, although my kids were arguing over whose car was shinier. Some things never change.
