Now that we have flipped the calendar page to August, I can no longer ignore the fact that my nest is about to be empty. I know it is a time to be happy for my son as he starts his next adventure.
I know my husband and I will figure out how to fill our weekends now that we won’t be watching his football games or wrestling matches–at least until spring when we hopefully will be watching his college lacrosse games.
But right now I am anxious.
I am trying not to be sad.
I am relishing these last few weeks together.
I am cooking. I am baking. I am back-to-school shopping.
I am stealing more hugs than I usually get away with.
I know August 22 will be here before I know it.
Are you facing any big changes this fall?
