Since yesterday, the non-dairy creamer consumption in my house has decreased by two-thirds. I buy it in bulk because my 18 year old manchild liked a little coffee with his creamer. And ice. And sugar. In the mornings he basically drank a mild coffee flavored lukewarm sweet waxy substance.
Today he wasn't here to share my fresh pot.
My son swore into the Navy on Tuesday. Tears were shed and none of them were his. They mostly belonged to my older sister and my younger sister. Some of them belonged to me. My sisters started boo-hooing long before I did and that sort of thing catches like herpes.
All the tears shed yesterday more than likely belonged entirely to me. He flew a half a country away.
Then there were some tears today but that was because I re-watched episode 4 of Downton Abbey. That episode just sucked! I was not at all expecting what happened and I wonder what will happen in episode 5. Episode 2 was also excellent.
Sadly, I walked around my house kind of undressed, going to the bathroom with the door open because no one else was here to see it besides the cats. There was fast food with double the processed cheese and pickle for lunch which should make anyone feel weepy.
The last 19 years of my life have been taken up with this kid in one way or another. My entire adult life. I don't know what to do.
Other than be proud. I am so proud.
...I'll probably keep buying the coffee creamer in bulk though. It's not like it goes bad. It costs the same as a package half it's size!
