Big change happening around here. On Friday my son moved to a town about 3 hours away. The decision to move happened pretty quickly. He had spent the past 10 days at Grandma and Grandpa’s helping out and on Tuesday he was offered a job. He drove home on Wednesday night and left again Friday morning.
He will be working at my sister’s cafe. We are fortunate that he has this opportunity especially in Michigan’s struggling economic climate. However, I miss him horribly and he’s only been gone a couple days.
I’m not sure where all the time went…he was just my baby boy and now he is all grown up and living far from home. I know that’s how it is suppose to be, but there is still an ache in my heart. The house feels different, quieter somehow. I guess we are all a bit mopey from missing him. We’ll adjust and move forward because that is really the only option. It looks like there will be road trips at least once a month to visit him. I’m just glad he’s within driving distance.
I’d love to hear how you adjusted to your children leaving home. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
