It only took 20 years....

I have a friend who lives in PA, we talk pretty much on a daily basis and lately most of our discussions involve how much my life seems to be changing. Not only is it changing, but it's changing quickly, then again isnt that how life changes in general though, quickly?

We keep joking around talking about how I'm not going to know what to do with myself come the fall. Two of my oldest kids are out of the house living their lives on their own and the remaining 5 will be back in the public school system after we move. So, where does that leave me during the day? I tell ya where it leaves me, it leaves me ALONE in the house, having the house to myself to do what I want and need to do.

My friend of course keeps saying I'm going to loose my mind, I however have a different prespective on things. I keep dreaming of being able to take a nap during the day without interruption, being able to clean the house and it staying clean for more than 10 minutes at a time. Not having to fight someone for the remote control to the TV, or having to watch what "they" want to watch because that's just what Mom's do! I dream of not having to look for hours upon hours for something I just put down and the mysterious little hands in my house picked up and lost it for the hundreth time!

So, you see while I will miss my sweeties while they are in school during the day, and already miss the older ones who have flown the coupe, there are those "dreams" of mine where my days will be MINE to do with what I want and need all on my own. Ya know what's really funny though, it only took 20 years to get to this point....that's not so long is it?
