This is my first post on my new blog. It is a monumentous occasion !! A really huge step for me . I have wanted to do this for a long time and I am very exicted to have this place to write and share and talk to my friends and family and anyone else that comes along !!
I am in a new place in my life and trying to get used to a new normal. I spent my entire adult life raising four kids with my husband and now the last one is heading off to college soon and I find I am out of work for the first time in over 28 years , but not my husband, he is still working but I bet he wishes he could retire too !!
I cannot complain, really , I still have housework and dishes and laundry of course, so am not without some useful work, but the stuff that kept me so busy and sometimes made me crazy, but always made me happy is done. Raising our precious babies. I thought I looked forward to it, the big day when the last one finished high school and I was done… and I am happy to be here, but it is a strange place to be, not sure of the terrain yet !!
So, I figured it was time to figure out who I am and what I want to do and what better way but to write about it and see what I dig up over time. I am not sure of much right now in this new life, excpet for the love of my husband and kids and thier families , and my friends, lets not leave those wonderful supportive people out, I am so grateful for them , but it is time for me to find out who I am again, I finally have the time to be me , and now I have to figure out who ME is !!
