As a mom it is hard to let loose the strings that bind the child.
Now I have to go through the empty nest syndrome all over again. After a year of having his presence in our home, my son is finally moving out. He is growing up.
Don’t get me wrong, it is about time that he grows up and has a life of his own. He is 26 years old and should have been on his own a long time ago.
I may or may not miss having him around.
What this will mean:
No longer will we have to leave the light on for him at night.
No longer will we have to set a plate of food aside for him.
The candy stash will last much longer.
I get my old office back!
No longer will I feel like Harry Potter sitting in the closet under the stairs. I can move out of the tiny room and into something much roomier. I can even move my sewing machine back up stairs. Maybe I will even make another quilt. I haven’t made one in over a year.
My daughter left home five years ago. It has been that long? Wow…
My granddaughter will be three years old in May. How time flies…
I wish my son well and may he and his girlfriend build a great life together.
This week I have not really done much writing on Along Came Neil. The story has kind of stalled. Not to worry though. It is probably in the plot cooking stage once again.
I have opened the file several times this week only to wander off and surf the internet without looking for anything in particular.
I will be patient with myself and the next sub-plot will come to me. I am almost at my halfway point and Maggie just dumped her lunch all over Karla. Karla has been sent to the nurse’s office to try and get cleaned up while Maggie is off to the principal’s office. I have not yet decided what to do about these two characters, since they keep fighting with each other, only thing is Maggie keeps starting all the fights.
I do think that Neil is about to ditch Ashley. I’m not sure how much he can take of her and her ways of always having everything be about her and only her. But that’s where I am at with this story.
