It has been a very long time since I have poked my head in here. I am finding it hard to keep up with blogs, facebook, twitter and all the social media that surrounds me. Too many transitions this past year have left me wanting to back up and be silent. I needed time, and still do, to reevaluate what I want my life to look like. There is a shift that happens when you turn 50 and you don't have kids at home anymore. I have seen some of my friends that are the same age go through this too. Plus, we had quite a big year. We moved last July, took two vacations, my Father-in-law passed away, my daughter got pregnant, my son moved back to the area after being gone for two years, I turned 50, started three jobs and am now working just one, helped move my husbands business closer to our new home and am working on packing up and fixing up our old house to put on the market and am signed up to start college classes in a few weeks. There are lots of other things tucked into the middle of it all that have made life very full. Everyone has stuff going on, so I am sure you can relate to some degree but being the introvert that I am, I am needing a lot more down time and rest than I did before. So if I don't pop in again for awhile, you will know that I am working hard at school and helping my daughter through her pregnancy and taking time to stop and smell the roses.
