5.18.18 ~ Me, Myself, and I

I’m not really forthcoming with photos of myself. So I figured I’d share one so you know I’m not a robot (no matter how many times I click the buttons to prove it).  I’m 43 now, getting closer and closer to 44. I’m finally embracing my single status and have fallen in love with a wonderful man. We’ll see how that goes, though. I’m still very unsure about men these days. Twice bitten, you know? More on that later.

So here’s me:

Miss Cassandra has officially passed her 18th birthday. We’re getting down to just days 32191157_10155301682615925_6073332323481288704_nbefore she graduates. This thing called parenting really does hurt your heart sometimes. I can’t believe she’s

graduating high school and becoming a productive member of society. She passed her state boards for cosmetology. She won a Kiwanis award for being an outstanding student in cosmetology. She has already gotten her first and second tattoo! She’s 32788805_10155318096800925_2392529382120882176_njumping into adulthood as fast as she can, and I can’t seem to hold her back. It sucks.

She’s also gotten another set of senior pictures done. I’ll post those separate.

So join me in my parental distress over losing another kiddo to adulthood….32894691_10155318099300925_9105878559318081536_n32923343_10155318099385925_4102857433234276352_n.png

I haven’t posted in two months! Holy cow!

Well, the kids and I have been running our collective asses off. We’re in the middle of moving from our home of 9 years into a smaller apartment. That is, Nichole and I are moving into the smaller apartment. Ryan is moving into his own apartment. Cassie is moving in with him, but technically she’s still living with Nichole and I until she graduates. But–to save the second move, most of her stuff is moving in with Ryan. She graduates high school in two months. She turns 18 in six weeks. We have a lot going on right now! But we have even more coming up……

I’m excited for all these changes in our lives, and terrified as well. I’m starting to feel the empty nest syndrome though. It’s so weird to just have Nichole in the house. I spent so many years living with a husband and four (sometimes seven) children! Do you have any idea how hard it is to learn how to cook for just two after so long?

One thing I’m most proud of is my bedroom. I know this sounds stupid, but after all these years, I finally have a bedroom that I don’t have to share with anyone! I get to pick out the decor, without compromise. So, I picked the most girlie bedroom decor I could find, but it’s still a work in progress.
