Sometimes life is just so darned confusing. Chad came home on Wednesday evening so he was here, except he was gone most of the time, for four days. Even though he was hunting or off with friends or working, he was home every night and life was good . . though I complained about him waking me at 3:00 a.m. when he was going hunting, or waking me when he got in at 2 a.m. after attending the Wal-Mart sale that started at midnight . . especially when Vince got up at 5 a.m. to go to the Black Friday sale that same morning.
But, come Sunday evening, Chad packs up his clean clothes, his food for the week, his new “Babycakes” cupcake maker, and he’s off for the week. Our house seems so empty. It’s all I can do to keep from crying! Heck, to tell the truth, I did cry! I’m happy he’s growing up and doing well but dang, I miss him so much.
Then Vince and I discuss the land situation. Do we really want 40 acres in the woods at our age? What if something happened to one of us? Would we stay out there? Probably not. Do we want to retire in this area? Probably not! Where do we want to retire? We don’t have a clue!
I have a great life and I’m happy . . don’t get me wrong. But sometimes nothing makes sense. We work. We raise kids. They leave and we’re lonely. We work some more. We retire and then what? Don’t answer that! 🙂
Maybe I’ll open up EQ and design a happy quilt! 🙂
