Happy Monday EVERYBODY…
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and squeezed in some self care while doing so. I had a full weekend of hanging out with my son and his friends and I have to admit it was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time.
Friday, I spent several hours at the County Youth fair, before surrendering to the exhaustion, to go sit in my car and eat a smoked turkey leg and funnel cake. On Saturday, I was mommy taxi to part of my son’s basketball team to a tournament in which their last game was played after 8 pm. Sunday, which is usually devoted to relaxing, I spent at the baseball field for my son’s practice.
The above is similar to how I spent a lot of my weekends as a parent. With three son’s, who were heavily involved in academics and sports, there were very few sleep in weekends. My boys are older now, my youngest is a freshman in high school, and I know soon the day will come when I wont have to find basketball shoes in my couch, or buy a new glove or even pick up anyone from whatever practice they may have.
What ever will I do with myself???!!!!
IM GOING TO PARTY LIKE ITS 1991!!!!
I will sleep til I want to get up, go on an adults only cruise, buy a sports car, not do laundry for a month and enjoy it all….LOL
I love and enjoy my children and I am so proud of all their accomplishments thus far, but when they move to the next level of their lives, I want to as well. Sure; I will miss that life but I will definitely make the most of the new chapter of my life. I’m excited about the future for my boys and for myself.
What life will you live after your children are grown? Are you taking care of yourself; physically, mentally, financially, now so you can enjoy life later? Have you made plans?
Something to think about!!!
P.S Part of my life with grown kids will be to concentrate more on my love to craft and create. Check out some of my creations at:
