The kids have moved out and now I am on constant break. Lonely sometimes but mostly good. I am surrounded by my dogs and other pets. Raising kids is exhausting and I remember the feeling. One day I was walking the dog in a forest by myself and thought, "What if I just continued walking, just him and I, forever free."
Now the hectic family life is a sweet memory, looking at pictures you can still hear the noise. It will be back this month when they all come home for a week. It will be noisy and fun, just long enough not to want to go on a break.
Enjoy your break if you get one!
