Sailing New Chapters

Quick update for my followers-

I’m sorry for my lack of writing, commenting and being present these past few weeks.

August 2016 has been a frantic and an emotional one for me with the real world  being a party pooper  on my parade and taking over as top priority.

Most of my summer has been spent with my son, helping to prepare and move him into college.

He had his official move in day last week. Eek!!

For the first time in my life (41 years!) I get the experience of living alone! I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it.

It’s an exciting time for him AND me!  This new journey and new chapter in both our lives, I must admit is a bit overwhelming.

I’m trying to a adjust to a quiet home. My son is a talker! I’m also trying to find my way through to a new quest in rediscovering myself. I’ve spent so many years taking care of others, that I’m left with trying to cope with just taking care of myself. You would think with his leaving, I would have globs of extra time to write and be here. But it’s actually thrown my world into chaos trying to figure out ‘my’ routine. I am so scattered and disorganized even worse than I was before. But I’m working on it!

I haven’t forgotten you, and have had writing in my head the entire time. I appreciate your patience and sticking with me through this. I can’t wait to share some of the words floating in my head and hearing your feed back.

I look forward to catching up as I can, and reading what you have left for me and on your blogs!

Keep me in your thoughts as I press forward on this new road of being an empty nester!



For the sake of keeping this blog, Don’t You Forget About Me, exclusively for my poetry, my troubled hearts pining, my gushing on love and hope, and my #dyfam muse- I’ve decided to create a separate page for writing about my son and my adventures of a newly acquired ‘adult’ life.  I welcome you to follow me there if you’re interested!

    oh wow! I can imagine it feels very strange to be in an empty house. You will figure out a new routine and have a wonderful time taking care of yourself now. I hope your son does well and I can’t wait to see what’s been percolating in your mind. 🙂 *hugs*

      It’s different! But it’s not all been a negative experience getting use to the quietness. I’m just getting my bearings and I’ll be up to no good in no time! lol
