I am a 47 year old wife of 27 years. We have three “children”… LOL! The oldest is 24 and she has finished college, has a great job, and owns her own home. The middle daughter is 20. She’s a freshman in college and thinks she know everything right now. You know the stage I’m talking about. 😉 She is going to be an RN. Then there is our “baby”. He is 18. He is a senior in high school and also thinks he know it all! His plans are to go into the Military. Oh, please, please let that be a reality. Along with our two still at home we have my 90 year old grandmother living with us. She has been with us for four years and I am seeing major changes as of late. Her mind is failing her and she knows it. That is the really hard part.
Soon we will be empty nesters. I’m not sure why so many dread it. I am looking forward to it. As much as I love each and every one…I look forward to living for us. We were married at 19 and 20 then had our first child at 22 and 23. We never really enjoyed “us” time. There are many things that I enjoy in life. Working out, reading, knitting/crocheting, riding the Harley, traveling to tropical places. I work a full time job which leaves me little time to enjoy these things.
I thought I would come to this spot and share life as we live it. Share the things we are enjoying, the curves, the potholes, the hills, and the valleys. I hope you will come along for the ride and we become fast friends!
Our two daughters are currently both estranged. We have not see the younger for 3 weeks and don’t have any idea where she is living. At least we know where the oldest lives but she is having nothing to do with us right now. They both need prayers and time to grow and mature; to understand what their father and I have really done for them. If I don’t talk about them it’s because it’s the way it has to be for me to get through this time. I love them and think about them but if I talk about them, I cry.
