Time to fly

Friday, August 10

I am writing with a heavy heart as I prepare to send off my firstborn to college. I am so very saddened at the thought of not having her around every day. I never thought it would be so hard. I figured we'd both be ready. But I don't think you ever know how you'll feel about something until you're experiencing it. I think we're both in an overwhelmed state of denial. Nonetheless, she'll be out of the nest next week.

And I know she'll have the time of her life.

And my heart will heal.

I'll enjoy some one on one time with my younger bird. And avoid thinking about the future for a little while.

For those of you who are also releasing your little birds. My thoughts are with you.
Take care,
--Ann

My thoughts are with you. I sent mine off to college 6 years ago and after 5 years of college I sent him off to Indiana for his new job. I had no idea the feelings I would have once he was gone. It was awful but with time it eased up on me. I still miss him awful.
It's just another step in growing up I guess for them and us. LOL

I've just started blogging because a friend said I need the community of writers, artists, etc. to support me while my only child goes off to college this next week. Your blog is one of the first I've visited, and I see you are going through the same thing! I know exactly how you feel. My first, last and only child is off in a matter of days. I have no idea how I'll cope.
That being said, I love art and photography and have plans of redoing a room for my art space and tracking all that on a blog will hopefully help! So my friends say...
My thoughts are definately with you right now!

I'm another one that is sending her first born and only child off to college in 12 days. Even though I'm caught up in all the things that need to be done, bought, packed, etc, to get him ready, I'm also hoping that I prepared him well enough to take on the world by himself.

I know exactly how you feel.

I have three children and it was as difficult with the first as it is with the last to send them off. I hate that sad kind of dull feeling. You do adjust though!

Hi Ann,

I just dropped my son off at college and am home. I thought that dropping him off was hard, but opening the door to the house, seeing his room empty of all his things--now that was hard!

To keep my mind busy, I've been working on my new art room. I have something to obsess over for a while!
