When my kids are home from school, everything in my life is suspended.
Proper grocery shopping.
All other plans.
I love my family dearly but they are all adults now and I want them to get on with their own lives.
When it is just me and the spouse rattling around in this big ole house, I feel free! I have a definite sense of freedom and independence. I no longer worry about my adult children to the extent I used to worry about them. To do so is counterproductive. My kids are going to do whatever they want to do, regardless of whether I worry/complain/advise or not.
I have adopted an attitude of, "Let the chips fall where they may." I remember my mother doing the same with me and now I understand why. A person can drive themselves crazy worrying about people, situations and events beyond control.
This post is my way of saying that I will get my freedoms back just as soon as school is back in LOL Until then, not much is happening around here.
