Last nite, my house was full of teenaged boys. My 17 year-old had a bunch of his friends over for a Halo tournament. They were still going strong when I went to bed in the wee hours of this morning. When I got up at 7:30 or so, they were camped out all over the place.
I opened my refrigerator and found that they had gone through about 36 cold drinks that were in there last nite, that all my left-overs were gone (not necessarily a bad thing), every piece of lunch meat had been eaten, and every carrot and pickle was missing. When I opened my freezer, I noticed that the two pizzas that had been in there yesterday were gone. On opening my cabinets, I saw that all chips, bread, and cookies were gone. No more cereal, no more milk...DAMN! Is this what is meant by being "eaten out of house and home"?? But you know what? I don't mind a bit!
My son will be graduating from high school at the end of next month, and he is my baby. Both of my other kids have been gone a long time, one living in Dallas with his family and the other living in Sugarland with her family. When Eric leaves and goes to college, I am sure going to miss him and his friends with their huge appetites and their Halo tournaments!!
