I’m doing a face-lift on my blog and updating things in order to make a clean start of things by the end of the year. Blogger ate my old blog apparently, but I had decided that maybe that meant it was time to be an Adult about this.
I am doing some soul-searching and a little more prayer on where I want to go with this, as I don’t want it to be “just another mom blog.” Pretty soon it’ll be an “old lady” blog at the rate I’m going. 😉
This might be for the moms in transition. You know, the ones whose kids are growing up and moving on and/or out. I’ve got one who just bought his first truck and is now looking at a house and another who is looking at marriage and a house in short order. It’s a step forward, into the unknown, for all of us. I’ll be gaining a daughter-in-law and an extra branch of family to deal with on holidays and whatnot. As a criminally introverted member of society, I don’t see me doing so well with this initially. I don’t like to add people involuntarily to my “circle”, and some days it feels like my son is thrusting too many new people at me too quickly. I’m trying hard to keep up, but I’m pretty sure they are concerned that I’m extremely weird and antisocial. (I am, but they don’t need to know that!)
Then there’s the younger two Manlings. No. 3 is in his second year of VoTech, and No. 4 will be starting next year. I don’t know what I’m going to do when they are both out of the house for an extended period in the mornings. Well, no. I have some ideas what I’m going to do, but it’s a little mind-boggling to think of the gluttony of time I’ll have. Yeah, yeah. I say that, but it’s amazing how quickly it fills itself up.
For now, I’m working on getting some clean-up done and putting things in order that didn’t get done over the summer as I had planned. My hubs is putting my kitchen back together, and I know I’ll feel much better when that project is through.
