College is out!

My college kids are home for the summer. Yippee! Hurray!

Only the warm fuzzy feeling didn't last long.

I forgot what they're like. Wet towels all over the floor. Dirty dishes and glasses scattered everywhere. Mounds of clothes; some clean, most not. Toast crumbs underfoot and on the counter and beyond. Coming and going at all hours of the day and night. And I'm pretty sure I'm missing a bottle or two of wine.

I feel like the house elf.
What happened to the life I've become comfortably accustomed to?

I bet they won't realize what I'm going through until they have kids of their own, and those kids do the exact same things to them.

And, why, when my mother visits, does she have a smirky grin on her face as I'm complaining about them? Isn't she supposed to be a little more sympathetic?
