Always Learning

As our oldest started high school the sadness started creeping in at the thought of my boys someday moving out on their own.

I started keeping a mental list of things I'd like to do or learn as I get more time to myself. You know, focus on positive stuff instead of being upset that my boys are growing up and moving out.

As life changes, I'm sure this list will too... but here it is for now:
  • Learn to sew.
  • Learn to garden.
  • Read more.
  • Crochet more.
  • Learn to be more Green.
  • Keep trying to get healthy.

I am following you from Blog Frog and 31DTBB. I posted below you on Day 1 (yea, I am a bit late jumping on the band wagon - but better late than never, right?)

I loved your list!!! First of all, its hard to imagine what it must be like having your boys grow up. Mine is only 6 months old. :) But, I have to say that every item on your list is either a hobby of mine or a desire. It seems we have some things in common. I look foward to reading more of your blogs.

Have a great weekend!!!

Hi Mona ... also following on BF for 31DBBB and thought I'd drop by.

Have definitely felt your sadness as my little chickens have grown and moved on. Now some of them have little chickens of their own and they are keeping my heart and schedule full. I'm still waiting to have time to do all the things I have on my 'life changes' list.


Love your blog ... hope you'll stop in and visit me as well.

Blessings,
penny

Good for you being ready for your life to change and actively having a plan of what you want to do! Life is a learning process...it's never to late to start something new!!

Thanks Cori. I'm just trying to beat down that negativity before it has a chance to grow into a full blown depression.

I can't believe how fast life flies by. My baby is starting Kindergarten. I know it won't be long until I am in your place. I would love to learn from your experience. You have a great plan.

I went through this recently when my 10 year old son went away to Boy Scout camp. At first he insisted my husband come as a chaperone. By day two, he told him to leave because he was "cramping his style". I don't know if I ever will get used to these milestones.

Enjoyed your post!

The changes never end. Today my oldest said, "Mom, I'm 18. I can handle it". Uggghhh!
