Wow. I’ve been gone a long time. So much has happened, so many thoughts. Last time I was here I was still mourning my father, getting used to the idea of my (baby) son being 16, and trying to figure out what, if anything, I had to say.
I’m not staring down the tunnel at 50 anymore – I passed it and haven’t looked back. I’ve had good times, setbacks, and am now staring at my impending empty nest as my second son will head off to college in the fall. I’m still technically single but in all ways that matter am paired with a wonderful man who I love dearly. And who has three daughters. The nest is full, in all the important ways, even if the chicks aren’t always in it.
More to come, even if I’m the only one who reads it.
