Ever changing household
Nature abhors a vacuum?
Build it and they will come?
I'm looking for the words to decribe what having a house a bit bigger than my needs is like.
After the kids moved out the house seemed way too big. That situation didn't last all that long. They kept coming back, and sometimes bringing husbands or a child with them. That was fine. Happy to be there for them.
Well, for a number of years now the kids have been off on their own. Unless something really drastic happens they are pretty well set up.
My niece on the other hand. . .
Yep, new addition to the household. Happy to be here for her. She's in her 20s so it's not like I have to raise her. My lovely wife and I can just be our normal eccentric selves. I've no idea how long she's going to be here, but we haven't put any time limit.
In the mean time, it appears I have a built in dog and house sitter. That works.
Multi generational households are on the upswing in America. Considering how difficult things can be it only makes sense.
