Who likes Change? I am not talking about the jangling of those quarters and nickels in your pockets either! Although, around my house I have been accused of having pennies all the time. I will let you in on a little secret..I actually have a baggie full of those babies! lol Why do I hold on to them? Honestly there really is no reason. Although this year since I will be teaching the younger ones I will whip those babies out during my money lessons for sure. So on to the real reason I am posting....
Things are a changing all around me this summer.
This morning,my youngest went two and half hours away to basketball camp. It is her first time going that far over night without a member of our family. She said," Mom I feel like I am going off to college." My heart sank. She is only a freshman in High School! I am not ready!
Tomorrow my oldest gets her license. I am really petrified to think that she will be on the road ALONE without my husband next to her..navigating the summer traffic in our area! Prayers are needed all around. Ia m not ready!
Tonight,my husband and I ate dinner without our girls. It felt really strange for the very first time in our 18 years of being together. I love my husband dearly..I am not ready to have two empty seats at the dinner table!
Then, I found out a dear friend is not returning to our district this September. It is such a loss for our staff and the children that she taught for 10 years.
I realize that in a few years that I am really going to have to think long and hard about retirement. Those of you that may be nearing retirement age..what do you plan on doing? I am starting to struggle with this whole concept...enlighten me please.
I am not ready!
Sorry to be a Debbie Downer..but I just needed an outlet this evening. Thanks for listening.
