I haven't had any time or energy to write anything on this blog for the last week or so. My younger daughter is heading off to college today, and my wife and I have been helping her sort through her things and get packed. With my older daughter having moved out of the house and into an apartment here in town, and now with our younger one leaving for school at the other end of the state, we also have some massive housecleaning and reorganization ahead of us. It's both a fun time and a sad time for us... The kids are growing up and heading out into the world, and we will more-or-less be "empty nesters". I'll miss having the kids around, but I doubt they will miss my farting and belching all that much. I have a hunch they will miss my teasing, they'll miss their mom and me, and they will miss Baby Mackie, Bonnie and Abby. But life shifts around, it changes, and different life priorities emerge. While it has been hard to think of my 19- and 20-year-olds as young adults, it is becoming easier.

I'll probably post something here next week. In the meantime, check out some places on my list of links, and take a peek back here on Monday or Tuesday. See you soon!

Yeah, it's a big shift. But change is a necessary part of life.

Hang in there, buddy.

I hope you aren't too sad, but maybe you and your wife will also extra private time together. Buy her some roses and have a candlelight dinner or something she'd find romantic.
