There's a new normal a coming my way ...


It is funny how life seems to meander along the same path for a long time where not much changes and, then all of a sudden, the path ends and we must go off in another direction.  I am there right now.  Life as we know it is ending, in all possible ways, and a new path is awaiting all of us.

My Mr 19 moved out of home 3 weeks ago.  We are all getting used to him not being here now.  My initial sadness has now been replaced with acceptance.  He is happy and loving his freedom and independence.  I am certainly enjoying the decrease in washing and price of my grocery bill.  I do miss kissing his soft cheek each night and hearing him say "I love you mum" every day.   Mr 17 is loving the fact that his towel is always hanging where he left it and he can sleep without hearing the snoring from the next room.
