Well, here she is. Or, more accurately, here they are. The one on the left is Darling. The one on the right is SameNameAsYoungerDaughter. Originally, we agreed to let Darling move in, because she was, well, without housing. But you see, she has this girlfriend. We've known them both for a few years now, and we love them. So when Darling moved in, we naturally left an open invitation for SameNameAsYoungerDaughter to stay here when she wants, too. They've been together since their junior year of high school. They'll be college sophomores this year. They have jobs, they have a car, they pay for their own laundry supplies, toiletries, entertainment, and any junk food. They clean my house, do my dishes, and are the sweetest girls imaginable. Along with my other three, that is.
As my friend, Peripatetic Polar Bear once said, "no time for the empty nest. And do you even want it?"
The Attorney and I looked at each other this morning and said, in unison, "Are we NUTS?"
I think not.
(PS: I'll leave it to your imaginations as to how it could be "or more!" and will fill you in as time marches on)
