Back to School Kids!

Memorial Day weekend is over and the kids are going back to school!Back-To-School

Of course, they are counting down the days to summer vacation. I am too, I really love to have them around. Even when they begin to get on my very last nerve!  Since they are now at the ages of 11 and 13, I know they won’t want to always spend time with grandma. The difference between a grandson and a granddaughter is so interesting though. My grandson is a perfect mini me of my son. Same as his dad, this is the age when friends become a major part of life.  Running and playing are all that seems important. We think we have about a week of the crutches left, or he will go out of his mind!

A granddaughter seems to be so different. She is more of a loner. Perfectly happy to be home with grandma and a book. She is changing so much and becoming a lovely young woman. We are becoming best friends.

I’m selfish and I worry about me!  What do I do as they grow up and grandma takes a different role in their lives. I really believe my depression started when my son was about their age.  I had lost my identity. My life had been so full of him, his friends, his sports, and all his interests.

I guess it happens to a lot of  women. We get so caught up in others we let ourselves suffer. I do hope I do better this time around. I have my blogging, my craft sales and now an Etsy shop, that I really need to get busy with.

I’ll stay busy!

I’ll be fine!

See ya Later!

  1. You WILL be fine! I never had kids of my own, other than the furry, four-legged ones. My stepson was 9 when his Dad and I got married. Now he’s married with a son of his own — and a 2nd one on the way — so my life pretty much revolves around the dogs. But I try to stay busy during the day. I need to start on my Continuing Ed courses, but I’m taking a little break first. I have a bunch of stuff to catch up on, but when I look at the pile, it overwhelms me. I’m tempted to say the he** with it. 🙂 So, what do you sell in your etsy shop?

  2. You have lots to keep you busy so you’ll be fine! I found that when my kids left and went to college keeping busy with other stuff kept me sane!
