Now though life is changing. My second oldest went off for her first year of college. Moving her in and saying good bye was hard. I will miss her even though she is only an hour away from home. My husband went back to his day job now too, so I don't get to spend as much time with him either. I enjoy the time that we have during the summer because I don't get to see him a lot during the school year. He is always busy with two jobs and a lot of grading and prepping for classes too. My oldest goes back to her college at the end of the week. I won't get to see her until Thanksgiving. Her college is too far away for her to come home easily for the weekend. I know that she will be busy with classes and studying and friends anyway. I also have two school age children that go back to school next week. I won't have them around during the day either and the after school activities also start up soon also, so they will be busy in the evenings.
I will be at home with my little one during the day. It is always a bit of an adjustment from having everyone around all the time, to it just being the two of us. I adjust a bit faster than my little one though. He goes from having a lot of people to play with to being just with mommy. I am hoping that having less people around during the day will translate to less chaos and being able to get more accomplished. I have to balance my working time and my mom time however. I know that too soon he will also go away to school and I will miss our time together. I don't want to waste these years by not doing enough with him.
I do want to focus the my time part of my day to creating. I create all the time anyway because I just don't feel complete if I don't, but now I will have a few less distractions. I do have some big plans and things that I want to prepare for too. I'm looking forward to cooler weather and a time of focused work, so that I can get some of my projects done and ready to share with the world. So with that I will leave you to a creative and productive week.
