I don't like it when my sons are home during the day - Now that Foodie's hours have been cut, he has to much free time and it just bugs me. He grilled hamburgers last night for dinner. They were good. He KNOWS how to grill them to perfection, something he learned at In and Out, when he was in their management program. I don't always like his cooking but he sure is passionate about it. Last night we sat down together and watched Hells Kitchen, which is one of my favorite shows. We also watch Food Network Star and Master Chef. We're INTO food. He is still stalling though, on applying for Cal-fresh.
I would love to see him, open up his own place one day - He has thought about it, but right now it is just a dream. I've suggested operating a gourmet/fine-food truck, that way he is paying for the truck and has more control, rather than paying rent on a place. It's still not in the cards.
Then I suggested, that we use our RV - and I would go into business with him. We'd gut it and make it all nice. I am desperate to get them on their own feet. I just don't know. I even suggested that they both relocate and go to those high paying oil jobs in Texas and the Dakotas. They don't have to stay there forever but go to where the jobs are.
I do miss my empty nest days - I could keep my house clean, walk around naked....by the time they get OUT, I'll be too old to be left alone.
