Dusty Dreams

There are about nineteen days left in 2016. I never make New Year resolutions, but I do always look forward to what may be in store for us/me in the upcoming new year.

Ever an adventurer……

My future at this point is rather swelling with fear  anticipation. Last Thursday was the last day of my son’s semester at University and that marked the last day of me caring for my three year old grand daughter. I have watched her pretty much full-time for the last three years and her sister, now in kindergarten, since shortly after she was born.

I have mixed emotions. More on the side of taking the dreams off the proverbial shelf and dusting them, throwing away some, creating new ones, OR curling up on the couch and watching NETFLIX for a while……. a long while.

I do love changes. They actually wake me up and make me feel more alive. But know, Dear Reader, that I am extremely human (as opposed to being simply human ??) and I am terrified of what I am to do.

I see this change in life as another adjustment. As a loss in some ways. The girls are only just over an hour up the road. I have already FaceTimed them twice. But I shall let this minor grieving time have it’s way in me and I know that I will see my future, my new roads and dreams more clearly as the days go by and as I finish up a series in NETFLIX.

Have a Great Holiday Season!

  1. Dear Cate..glad you are normal…I wonder too what the next stage of life will bring…be sure and binge watch something…then let it go and get on to the real stuff…

  2. Change and transition are messy and often chaotic. God is saving the last portion of your life for the best, Cate! Transition is difficult but the new fresh vision will give you a whole new song and dance!

  3. I’m with you Cate– Changes are exhilarating and scary all at once. When I retired, I started out with so many projects and know have mellowed out a bit. Need to “dust some dreams” like you and keep using the days fully. It will be exciting to hear what you’re doing ahead. And I know you’ll see the kids a lot still– and the girls will always remember the time with you. What you have going up for Christmas?? I wrapped the last gift today! hooray! and waiting for kids to show up next week… Christmas hugs from here Cate!

    1. Thank you Fellow Journey-ist (?). Lol. We are going to heir house for a Christmas Eve/Christmas Day sleepover. Other son and wife will be there also. So excited. Have a great Holiday.

      1. That sounds perfect Cate! We have kids here and there will be people sleeping all over our small house– merry chaos. Happy travels and Christmas blessings to you and your dear family! xox
