What do I do now?

So, that's that. The youngest is now a college freshman. The oldest has a job and is living in another state.

Now what do I do?

Should I change the name of this blog? Or, is it that the nest is always there awaiting their return or the appearance of grandchildren?

Today, I got all of my Sunday morning chores done by 9:30 am. Okay...that's a first. On top of that, no one needs their homework read, or their laundry done, or cupcakes made or any of that stuff. Even worse, it's raining...there's no going outside to kayak or workout.

Now what do I do?

Yes, I have turned into the stalking parent on Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat. Really it's more to pass the time than anything. I just don't know what to do with myself besides cry and drink my favorite alcoholic beverage. (Today's choice is Biltmore House Red) Oh...and this house there is always plenty of laundry...Is it sad that I am just living for the dryer timer to ring?

I don't seem to have the energy to do anything taxing. So I guess I will find something to binge watch and call it a day.
