I almost have my house to myself for the summer. My two live-in grandkids are back with their mother (my daughter) where they will stay for at least the summer. We'll see how she does before making decisions about next year so the children's absence may or may not be temporary.
In the meantime, there should be a major impact on my finances.
Since both of the kids are bedwetters, my washer and dryer were in constant use. In the week since they've been gone, I've done exactly one load of laundry.
When I turn lights off and close doors, the lights stay off and the doors stay closed. More utility savings.
No more running the kids to activities all over town. I've got a bus pass which I use for commuting, but it was such a hassle to take two youngsters on the bus that I would wind up using the car when running errands.
This is not to say that I don't miss having the little kids around.
But my wallet is happier now that they're gone.
