This summer marks a juncture in my life. My baby graduated from high school and will be going away to college in August. Talk about a huge change! For the past 19-½ years, I’ve been a “stay at home mom.” I taught piano lessons for 18 of those years and worked a few hour a week outside the home this past school year. I also wrote five books that were published by Harlequin and three more for Mountain Brook Ink. So to call myself a stay at home mom seems like a stretch—then again, maybe not since I worked from home. After all, as mom’s we do it all. J
I have two more books releasing and then I have no idea what the future holds for me, other than I will be working about double the amount of time outside the home this school year than I did last year—I work at a high school, so at least the way I keep track of life, based on the school calendar, won’t change.
They say change is good. I’m on the fence, although I am thrilled for my son. Both my boys will be away at college and it’s my turn to do . . . I’m not sure what. I plan to read a lot of books, but that is nothing new. J
How about you? What do you think about life changes? Do they excite you, fill you with dread or somewhere in between?
