The best laid plans...

As I have stated before, we have five children between us.  Three of the five are of adult-stature; one is in the work force, one is a special needs adult and attends a transitional program, one is in college, and two are in high school.  Until recently, He and I were empty-nesters; none of our children lived with us.  However, in August, the college student was suddenly without housing, due to an unforeseen on-campus housing shortage.  The University, short on dorms, determined this child lived too close to campus to qualify for housing.  Since we live close to the college, and we have an empty spare bedroom, the child moved in with us.

We love having our college student here.  I want to state that up front.  It has created a change in our lives, especially in regard to any kinky activities, but we wouldn't change anything.  We have always told our children that the door to our home is always open to them, and we mean that.  Kids come before kink, that goes without saying.

However...tonight the college student had plans.  Plans that involved spending the night someplace else.  This meant a night alone for us, something that hasn't happened in quite a while.  Accordingly, we made a few plans, and we were looking forward to some "us" time.

Until about 7pm, when the college student called and said the plans had changed.  No more sleeping away from home, they would be here soon.

Sigh.  It would be less than honest to say we weren't disappointed.  We were.  Our plans have been put on hold, for a little while at least.  See, the college student is going to Grandma's house in a week, and will stay there for ten days over Christmas.  And while the college student is away, the Sadist and the masochist will play.  Mmm-hmm,  play we will.


  1. We have a college student and a 10 year old at home, and the married man and his wife(who works with me) are here in the evening at least three nights a week. i wouldn't change it, I love my kids, but I feel your pain (or lack thereof).

  2. Greetings tranquility, came across your blog and look forward to reading more. My blog is a year old but only recently have i begun to post in it more, like over the last two months. I am also in my 40's with adult children, and i can understand the disappointment you felt when your plans were changed. Have a great day!
