Reflections On The Last Year

It has been a year of change. Catherine (our youngest) bought a house in Germantown, going to settlement on September 15.  She moved in December 10.  The house is beautiful now and all the hard work was worth it, the money kept flowing out, but that to was worth it.  We are now empty nesters.

Not only are we Empty Nesters, but Darby is retiring in 2 days.  I don't know how I feel about this. While having him home more may be  a good thing, having him at home more is also going to change my life, I don't know if I am ready for that change. I will still go to knitting on Wednesdays, that is set in stone, nothing changes that.  I am hoping that we will travel more and we do have a cruise booked that will probably take place in 2013.  We have also talked of taking a trip to Ireland, I hope he still wants that.  My husband can be a stick in the mud sometimes.  I want to travel, but getting him out may prove to be a challenge.

I have scheduled an appointment with my counselor for tomorrow, I think I need to talk some of this out.  Things have been stressful and taking peoples heads of is not in my best interest. 

Everyone we have talked to, who has retired says it is great.  Then again they are not married to my husband.  Don't get me wrong I love him, but!

My blog seems to be rather negative wouldn't you say, and I am not a negative person.  This coming year will be different and will mean changes for both of us.  I just ask for your prayers and hope that by the time I post again my attitude will have gotten better.

I wish everyone a Wonderful and Prosperous New Year!!!
