6 Years since my last post. I remember a time, not so long ago, that my laptop was the thing I kept closest. Always on it, trying to connect, share my messy life, vent, whatever I needed to "get out". Drinking wine while getting the never ending thoughts out of my head, hoping they would quiet. Sometimes it worked. Sometimes it didn't.
The last 7 years have been some of the most challenging and some of the absolute best, all at the same time. Those 11 and 13 year old babies I last posted about are 17 and 20 now.
Time goes that fast.
I found a partner who may not be perfect (who is?), but is exactly what I needed. He is perfect FOR me.
I no longer look for my laptop to pour all my feelings out to. I have a person who is a damn good listener and bright young adults whose banter and minds fascinate me. I have it all, within our 4 walls.
That's not going to be the case forever. I can feel it slipping. It'll be time for them to leave soon. I know that's how it works. That doesn't make me more ready.
They are almost ready to fly. I'm going to focus on getting them there with all I have.
Mome no longer needs wine.
It's been a blast
Thanks for listening.
