Today was bittersweet for me. We moved our daughter and her boyfriend into their new apartment. Although it is only 30 minutes away from us, it won't be the same as seeing her almost everyday for the last 18 months. Even nine months ago, we were a full house: 5 people, 4 dogs, 1 cat, and 1 guinea pig. Today we are back to being empty nesters with one dog, one cat, and one guinea pig. It's a lot more quiet tonight. There's a part of me that is sad, because I liked having everyone here. It was a bit chaotic at times, but we made it work and enjoyed ourselves. Even though it's inevitable and you want your kids to be independent adults, I do miss having our kids and their dogs around the house. On the other hand, I couldn't be more excited for all of them. Nolan has been out on his own for awhile now, and Jaelyn and Beau are embarking on their own adventure. So, although I'm a little sad, I'm also very happy and that's perfectly okay I think.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
