AN EMPTIED NEST
I have been enjoying the clean. When I leave for work with a neat kitchen, I come home to a neat kitchen. Which is not to say that my husband has suddenly started doing dishes - lol - but his plate or bowl left on the counter is nothing in comparison with the scattered cups, spoons, unwashed cutting board and other detritus Ally left in her wake.
I have not done laundry yet because I don't have enough to make a load - never a problem with a teen aged girl around.
The cash in my wallet stays in my wallet!
The thing that doesn't change? That mom radar. There is a part of my brain that is constantly sending out waves in search of my kids. I have this undercurrent of awareness of where they are and what they might be doing at all times. It is hard to express but I suspect most moms can relate. No matter how far from home they are, there is a part of me seeking them out.
