So last fall I had to adjust to my DD going away to college. She was only 60 miles away, but wanted to try the 'dorm' experience. So we moved her in and she came home most weekends. Well fast forward to this January where she decided it wasn't for her and moved back home! While I am fine with this, it is an adjustment again. She is commuting to school and says even with the drive she is fine and much more happy!
Now DS has been fighting with severe tendonitis all summer/fall and had to resign from his job of 4 years because of it. In late November another health issue cropped up and now that is finally getting resolved and he is (hopefully) on the mend. We told him to work on getting healthy and everything else will fall into place.
I think I have had a hard time with this because we are all taught that when your kids turn 18, it is time for them to leave the nest, or become adults and work and go to school. As I tell DH all the time, the world is a different place than when we were their age! Heck when I was 23 I was planning a wedding!
But I digress, I love having them home and seeing them flourish and work through life. Their time will come and I will be happy to help them when they are ready.
Have a great day!
Moving update and our empty house
