Home Alone

I am home alone a lot now that my son has gone to college.  I keep myself busy with work, blogging, looking for meaningful work, seeing friends and family, doing the housework and yard work.  It is all busy work.

I miss my son and having someone here with me.  Having my son here made me feel more comfortable and secure.  It has been many years since I lived alone and I forgot what it was like.

I have the television on more now than before.  It keeps me company and my cat keeps me company.  I talk to my cat and sometimes I find myself talking out loud.  I know it’s kind of weird but I guess hearing myself talk is better than the silence.

It’s the next phase of my life.  I’m no longer having to make meals for my son or call him when I am stopping at the store to see if he needs anything.  It’s time to move forward and embrace this time that I have to find new passions and self fulfillment.
