Back to normal...

Well I had big plans for this summer vacation.....Steve was visiting his dad, which is never easy for me because I am lost without him. But this summer unlike last summer I was ready to explore a "single" life, get some home things done and just be a little carefree. Not really knowing what that meant but it was just going to be really about me and what I wanted to do.....

Instead I had two very short weeks and tomorrow I go back to California to get Steve and bring him home. He is coming home early by his dads choice. I am excited to have him home as he is my life.......but I was looking forward to the free time.

I have been out and about a little....and I have gotten some things done at home....never enough though. But owell, thats ok, it all never really goes away. I am more comfortable being Steve's mom than anything else in the world so it is all as it should be.

To all of you who have kids remember you made the choices that brought them into this world....take care of them. They deserve to be taken care of and loved unconditionally. They are the inocent ones...we corrupt them.

For those of you too young to have kids..and you know who you are...remember to live your life and have fun, be carefree BEFORE having your kids. You can still have a WORLD of fun and excitement when the kids come...its just different and they deserve your full commitment to them. For me that commitment is complete and without question....for others they question it everyday. As parents we all deserve a personal life but not at the cost of our kids...and some parents forget that or ignore that or think it doesn't matter. But it does.

Since my sons have been adults for 15 or so years, I have gotten in a lot of playing. Of course, not as much as I would have 30 or so years ago.

I so agree. Kids come first, we come next ... if there's time !!! If not, oh well !!
I love being a mum, and wouldn't change it for the world. My time will come, when Chicky has left home (hopefully not for a very long time) !!
Until then, I'm happy to be Mum first, wife second, then Meow !!
Have a great week.
Take care, Meow
