Today The Countdown Begins

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Today begins the countdown to my youngest child's graduation. We begin the final semester of college. The last tuition payment. The end of the road that began close to 20 years ago. emoticon

But today is also the beginning of the next leg of my journey. I will focus on better nutrition to lose those final pounds. I will also continue my own education by taking free courses online. May my mind grow as my body shrinks. emoticon

I wish all my Spark Friends a wonderful day. emoticon emoticon

    Love your comment about your mind growing as your body shrinks ... and ... think of all the fun you'll have with all that extra money!! emoticon

    When my youngest left for good, I took up painting with Bob Ross. I have pictures hanging all over my house. I also applied for and got a job at the local newspaper where I learned how to do absolutely everything from reporting to building ads to laying the paper to finances. I loved that job! Now, I'm home and enjoying the peace and slowness - free to travel.

    I love your goal...and your decision to become a better you! I made the same decision when my baby, now 20, left for collage. This IS a great time to extend our care to ourselves!

    Have a great day!

    hugs - I can't imagine yet what that will be like. Peanut just turned 17 yrs so I have a little time before I start freaking out over her moving on. She is so ready for it though ... all she can talk about sometimes. Planning with friends who is going to do what when they are roommates. ugh.

    Super excited to hear you want to take classes. I look forward to hearing your successes!

    As a post script: I really missed my son when he left, but now that I've cleaned his room I am questioning my sanity. Good thing he is 3 1/2 hours away or I would go and kick his butt. Ahhh the joys of being a parent emoticon

    I went through those days and they were so bittersweet

    Now I am counting the days until the first grandchild is born and then the couple gets married.
