Too Quiet

A Monday night and I am all alone. I usually can handle this on the weekends, but during the week, this is just killing me! The little guy is on spring break this week and Granny took vacation so she could watch him. To make things easier, he is spending the night tonight. I haven't seen him since this morning as I was on my way out the door. It feels so weird, silly I know, but I am unsure what to do with myself. I went out to dinner with my neighbors and then stayed at their home to chat for a while. This is a night when I could go to bed early, enjoy time to myself, and even be productive, but I'm just not feeling it. Maybe it is because he wasn't with me this past weekend. I don't know, but I what I do know is that I definitely can not wait until tomorrow afternoon to see him.

Sometimes silence like that can be deafening.

Fly girl. . . take it from a mom who got divorced and empty nest syndrome in one year . . . . . you have got to find some activities outside of your son. . . . it will make you stronger and help you to deal with the lonely times without him. Start now. . . prepare yourself because he will be grown before you know it.
Ciao

Sicilian made some good points. But I fully understand that kind of love that you miss them when they aren't around. Take care of YOU too lady.

I have done this same type of see-saw for years----I'm happy to have my quiet time, but I also feel lost with it sometimes. It's hard to enjoy being alone when you aren't used to it.
My son is a teen now and is away at friends house about once a week and I have learned to truly cherish my quiet time!! It will come to you too at some point...
