Been gone...

I have been away from blogger for a week or so and now I can't catch up on everything.  I have a lot to write about but not tonight.  I need to get the pictures off the camera and then I can blog about it all. But tonight just isn't the time.  Hopefully it will happen before the week is out.  But time gets away from me.

My son started his junior year of high school today. I think it is hitting me a little hard that my boy is becoming a man and will soon leave the nest.  After he leaves there is no one else to focus my attention on.  It will just be me.  I don't know what I will do when it happens.  I know worrying now when it is a couple of years down the road is pointless but I worry none the less.  I don't want to be a mother who can't let her kid go.  I need to focus on getting a life of my own so that when he ventures out into his, I am not left wondering "What the hell?". 

This is all a little deeper than my brain wants to dive.  So I will end this pointless post and be back soon with more upbeat news to share.  Now I will go soak in the tub with my Sherrilyn Kenyon book and turn the brain off.

My sister and I were having this same conversation a few years ago. Her kids are a few years older than mine. I asked her, "How do you deal with the loss of your kids, the empty nest? It will be so hard." And she said, "When the time comes, The Lord prepares you for it and makes you ready." She was so right about that. After a few years of freaking out about my kids leaving, I got to a place where I was just ready for the new phase of being without them there every single day.

I can't get my last one out of here fast enough. There must be something wrong with me.
