Empty Nest

Jake is living in a rented house with friends and Jamie is off to college next month.


You know what, friends? I'm having a hard time writing lately. I know I need to do an update. I already uploaded a ton of photos to use to illustrate our trip to NY. But I can't write about it. I can't write about anything lately.

I think I have too much on my mind, too many things I need to figure out. It has everything to do with our empty nest. I'll finally have time to do those things that are important to me. I just can't decide what direction to take. It doesn't help matters that a part of me wants to fly away myself.

I'll be back to normal soon, I think. Once all the details have been taken care of concerning Jamie's college and we solve a few problems concerning Jake, I'll be able to think more clearly.

Sorry it's been so quiet around here! Thanks for your patience.

Caryl, I'm sure once Jamie is settled in school, things will settle down. Having a kid go away to school is a big undertaking. We both have been through it. After the first month of school he should be fine and things will settle in for you and hubby. I haven't experienced a total empty nest as my youngest was still in HS when my older one was away. She has choosen a local College to go to, so we are still fully operational here.

Enjoy your time and let things happen naturally for you. You feel like writing do it, you don't its always there for another day!

Hang in there--I know this will be an adjustment.
