The mom intervention
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Yesterday I blogged about 2 of my daughters that live here.SO,I got home from grocery shopping when my phone rang.My oldest DD said Mom!We need you to come over we have something to tell you!Her voice sounded worried!With a pounding heart and sick stomach I rushed over.They met me at the door,took me by the hand and led me to a seat.Spit it out..I thought.Cancer?Diabetes?Tumor?
MS,WHAT????MOM,we love you and want you to slow down.You are'nt yourself and we're worried which translates to:You arent sitting in the house anymore in your chair watching TV and eating donuts!!I could'nt help it and started laughing.Can you imagine how worried I was and it was just a mom intervention?Of course they were furious at me for laughing.I did try to talk with them about myself having fun with friends,painting and decorating the house,yard work.I visit them 2x a week!Many people find empty nesting is too hard...I love it!!DH is the only mess maker and I can clean up in ten minutes after meals.DH took a bedroom and made me an exercise room/office
And he has been seen in there on the treadmill.We ate some lunch and I talked to them about loosening the imaginary umbilical cord a little more
I know many of you are saying,I'm lucky to have my kids around and It's true I AM!I am not however going to check in twice a day like a kid to make them feel better!
