My youngest son and his girlfriend have returned to campus. We are empty nesters once more. I'm fine with that. I miss my sons when they are not home and love to see them. But when they return to school, I enjoy the quiet and calm once more.
Tonight my husband and I will teach, as we do on Sundays for 28 weeks a year. And tomorrow I will start the new chapter in my life - the unemployed writer. Right after I finish the laundry, vacuum the playroom and get in my submissions for my congregation's April newsletter. Right after that. Well, I might work out a bit, clean the kitchen floor, check my email...
I still wear the crown, tarnished as it may be. :-)
