Stages and Phases

Empty nesting ~ such an animal term for the human condition.

Not only have two children pretty much flown the coop, but aging parents are taking my attention in another direction.

Sometimes it feels like I am standing in place with my head swiveling in different directions, first looking at Elder Daughter, then Younger Daughter, then Mom, then M-I-L #1, then M-I-L #2, then back and forth, not always in the same order.  Sometimes my gaze lingers and sometimes skips over.  Oh, and looking at DH in between all of those other attention stealers.

It can be difficult to remember to take time for myself, amongst all of the other attention stealers.

It is a true balancing act.
