I just got off the phone with my daughter who is is in the AF....I moved my son in to his dorm to start his sophomore year. I should have been rejoicing in the last 2 days, being able to run naked through my house. I cleaned out my fridge of the crap he likes to eat. I have canceled south park and tosh.o on dvr....but I am so ******* lonely....I know I have to find my own path without my kids. but I still wait to hear what they are up to. I've spent the last 20+years raising them on my own, how do I just leave that behind? It was so much easier to just dive in to work when they were home. My daughter told me tonight I just need to get out of the house, stop focusing on work. She wants me to start on my birdhouses again. So does my son. My kids have been the pinnacle of my existance for so long. How does one just unplug?
