Moving On

I reckon I knew this was coming. My son has finally decided to move out on his own. He’s a good boy and he’s got himself a good job, but it’s still bringing me down, a bit. I didn’t realize he had been apartment hunting, but he’s apparently found himself a right nice place. I’m just glad it’s not too far away. I’ve still got my little girl at home, but the idea that my boy is going to be living elsewhere – I don’t rightly know how to handle it. I’m so proud of him, but it’s awful nice to have him here in the house.

Wish me luck in adapting to one less child at home?

That’s all for now. Take care, y’all!

Cheryl

    Hi Cheryl

    Came across your blog on Twitter after searching for some relevant links on menopause. Have been observing my mom experiencing menopause and wanted to know if you knew of any great ways to track related symptoms.

    I have some ideas on better ways for her to do it, but wanted to see if I was missing something that’s out there.

    Thanks
    Ann

     
     
     
    • Hi Annie,

      Every woman’s experience with menopuase is different. I am not a doctor, but there are affiliates that I work with that are experts in this area. You can get expert advice and help your mom find relief by following the link below and filling out the form. This network of doctors specialize in menopuase and, in general, hormone imbalances. Once you fill out the form a member of the office staff will contact you to answer your questions. These doctors offer complimentary local seminars once-a-month in a question and answer format. I hope this helps!

  • Cheryl –
    I do wish you luck. When my son moved out I felt very sad. My daughter moved away ten years ago and is now married and, unfortunately, I rarely get to see her. But when my son left two years ago, even though he only moved 10 minutes away, I felt abandoned on some level because he was my youngest – Still, he was 22. Here’s the good news: I hear from him more now than when he lived with me because he’s such a sweet young man, he worries about me and often checks in with me to say hello. It’s good you’re proud of him. Lots of parents have their kids live with them until they’re thirty, but they really do need to grow up and sprout their wings. It sounds to me like you’ve done a good job. Just remember, you’ll always be his mother and more than likely you’ll probably have a profound influence on him, whether he’s living with you or not.
    The visits I have from my son now are truly “quality” visits, even if they’re not as frequent as I’d like them to be. Invite your son on a regular basis for Sunday dinners, perhaps. Boys usually love to come back home to eat! Tempt him with his favorites. Sometimes I call my son and tell him I’m making pancakes (which I make from scratch) just in case he’s hungry. That always gets him to jump in his car and come over, even though he leaves right after he eats! Anyway, Cheryl, I wish you all the best during the transition. One good thing is that you won’t have to worry about what time he gets home at night anymore. You’ll never even know so, as strange as it sounds, you might sleep a little better.
    Take care,
    Nancy
