The Neglected Blog

For good reason. 
I've been so busy the past 5 wks up until today. Now that the holidays are over and everyone has gone home, What will I do with all the extra time I have on my hands?
I suppose I could sit and read through blogs, catch up on some me time, go get a long overdue mani/pedi or go do some window shopping at the local mall, but then what?
Gone are the days of running kids here and there like a taxi cab. Gone are the days of constantly cleaning up after little ones and having them depend on me for everything. Having had my grandson here with me made me feel somewhat youthful again and this morning when I woke up he was gone. 
I miss my family, I miss being the mom I used to be, so full of life.  My nest is definitely empty and I'm sad =(  I can't help but wonder how long it will take before I feel as useful as the past 5 weeks have made me feel, I hope it's sooner rather than later.
I definitely enjoyed our family Christmas gathering, spending time with my mother, Universal Studios, the Rose Parade, visits to the park and waking up to grandson hugs everyday. 
Today I need to remember how blessed I really am.
