No More School Days

Me and My Son

Lately, I've been feeling as though I forgot to do something and I kept trying to pinpoint what it was.

I finally figured it out.

This is the first time in 16 years that I am not helping my son get ready for school.

I was in a big box store over the weekend and a separate section had been set up just for school supplies.  I watched the parents with their children buying notebooks (No! Not that kind!  I don't like that color!) lined and unlined paper (Are you sure this is printer paper?), binders (I want the kind with the pockets!) and an assortment of other school supply essentials (Please?! Can we please get this?  I know I'm really going to need it!).
I remember those days very fondly.  They were a mixture of excitement that another school year was beginning (where am I going to find the energy?) and sadness that summer and its freedom was coming to an end.
 I also have to admit that I will miss those trips to visit my son in college.  For me, they served as "mental health breaks," getting away and being in a different city and discovering new things
Now it is time for a new chapter and it's time to transition into a new phase of life.  I'm not sure where this will lead but I look forward to finding out.
Thank you my faithful readers for being here!
