I have been trying to act like its not a big deal, but deep down I’m all mixed up. I’m going to miss my little man so much. He has been my buddy for the past five years, so much like me in every way. I’m so use to having a little person around me at all times (insert puppy purchase). I’m not scared of being alone, I actually love alone time. But this just seems so big, so different. I get a little excited when I think about all that time I will have while they are both at school. I will actually be able to finish a project without being interrupted. I won’t have to wake up at 5:00 am just to get a walk in. I have told myself this is the year I will learn to make something other than sandwiches for dinner. But I get sad when I think about little Wes not being around for lunch, or for walks to the park, or afternoon quiet time on the couch. Everything is going to be…different.
I am so blessed. So I am going to take my husband’s advice, and take the next year to paint and create like a mad woman. I have already booked my booth at Metrolina for October and November. I told Krissy at Sanctuary she may need to make some room because I am going to be bringing in stuff by the truck loads. I am soooooo excited……. but as soon as I find myself excited, I get sad. Then I’m excited, then sad, then excited, then sad…..AHHHHHH is this normal or I have I officially lost it???
How do mothers do it when their kids go off to college???
I love you little man, I hope you have a wonderful day!
