After 24 years of rearing my two boys, my husband and I are now empty nesters. We've had to relinquish control little by little over the years so it wasn't a shock. In fact, it's more of a freedom that I'm embracing. I love my boys, but they need to embrace their independence and fly the coop, which they have.
It's a little strange though because I'm trying to find my new "groove". I seem to be floundering a bit trying to figure it all out. Things are so different now. I do find myself cleaning a little deeper and reading books from my "to read" pile. It's all good!
I'm taking it day by day.
A friend encouraged me to have a SB retreat at my house in October, which I decided to do. It was the weekend that we always took off for a few days, but now I don't have anyone to care for our pets while I'm gone, so we'll just have the retreat here. Which means no packing, yeah!
I am still doing an ATC swap with a couple friends every month, I'll try and get those pics uploaded soon.
