It's still relatively early on a Saturday here. Plenty has been going on, but I'm feeling a bit lost.

I have plenty to be getting on with - the never-ending cleaning, craft projects half finished, some ideas brewing that could do with a couple hours work and the everyday home education that should be going on.

Instead? I'm here. Wondering what to do. Wondering if anyone would notice if I went back to bed... for a couple days...

Everyone seems to be pootling along just fine with their own projects. I hope I don't turn into one of those women who don't know what to do with themselves when their children no longer need them...

  1. Somehow, I don't think you will.

  2. you have greater faith in me than I have in myself...

  3. I know how you feel - when I get a few minutes to myself I often just wander around aimlessly, unsure where to begin. I think when our kids grow up, there has be an adjustment period where we figure out what to do with ourselves. I think these little moments of freedom help us get ready for the bigger adjustment yet to come. :)

  4. Yeah. hope so. as soon as I feel surplus to requirements I feel genuinely lost and aimless... I think I need to get a grip LOL

  5. It's an old Early Learning Centre model.

  6. Oh, it is hard! When I am home alone (a very rare occasion, despite the fact that all my girls are adults now) I have no clue where to start and I often end up on the couch, enjoying the silence. But maybe that is what we need most right now...

  7. I dont want to end up with empty-nest syndrome - it's aweful feeling un-needed :S

  8. I know! My girls haven't even left home yet, but I already have that empty-nest thing going on. I try to convince myself that I'm still needed by getting up early when they have to, and doing taxi-services when needed but they are perfectly capable of managing without me. Oh well, it's only natural. I'm going to find some purpose in life besides being a mom. Soon. I hope. ;-)
    You still have a few years to go before they really grow up...

  9. True. Hoping they'll give me grandkids before I get too lost when I'm done with being a full time mother.... ;-)
