(this reminds me why they call it empty nest and not empty sty!)
Last weekend, we dropped the last of our three children off at college. While I am so excited for him and so aware of how lucky we are to have reached this point in our lives, I couldn't help but be a bit sad. I felt like I'd been fired from a job that I was good at and enjoyed.
I had a three day pity party for myself. Fortunately no refreshments were served. I just was sorry to say good by to this part of my life. I considered just quitting a bunch of things, including Spark People.
But on Thursday morning, I woke up and reminded myself of all that I have and all that I have to look forward to oin the future and here I am.
Planning to stay with it for September. For the fall challenge. Remembered that the only thing I've ever survived in my life is my own foolishness and that I need to get over myself. Too bad that don't make a ribbon for that.
