Thanksgiving went well. I cooked both entrees and we all ate and it was a nice quiet family time. I got to spend all day with my oldest granddaughter. She was alot of help. LOL
Since then life has been slowly getting better. Even if more hectic.
When the kids were younger our life had a rhythm. A steady and predictable pace. They went to school, I went to work. When we got home it was homework, dinner, laundry, etc. Now the 3 girls at home all have jobs and it is rare that we are all home together.
My cooking habits have changed. With no husband to cook for, most nights I don't cook at all. I keep frozen stuff for me and whoever might be home. The nights I do cook we end up with tons of leftovers since I don't know how to cook for just 2.
Don't get me wrong, I am glad they are all growing up and having their own lives, but sometimes I do miss the times when we were all home together every night. I have empty nest syndrome without the completely empty nest.
Work wise I am enjoying this quiet time before the start of tax season. I know it is only 3.5 months but it feels a lot longer. You would think after 6 years I wouldn't stress over it, but I do each year. Good news is with the kids all working and having their own lives, they won't have time to miss me not being here. LOL
