So many thoughts have been on my mind and all with the same theme. I am in a whole new phase of life. Wow! I am 47 years old. I can remember when I was 27 and 17 for that matter. I married way too young and I have been so busy raising children, and being a wife, then getting divorced, then in 2004 I lost my parents within 2 days of each other, double whammy, then in 2007 I met my best friend and now husband. The kids are grown and out doing their own thing. Suddenly, I turn to catch my breath and I find myself thinking things my mother used to say. If I was 27 and knew what I know now, I could really do some things. Still, I am at a beginning with my college adventure and my husband and I have a lot of plans. I have begun to see the world. We are traveling and enjoying things. There is a part of me that wishes I could have been in a sorority or at least lived in the dorms. I am happy just to be giving myself the gift of education. Next February, we are taking a caribbean cruise to Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and the Bahamas. I guess I am just putting things in perspective.I am trying not to dwell on things I missed and instead focus on the yet to come. I am trying to really look at myself and make some changes. I have been quiet and reserved and a bit too serious at times. I am trying to learn to relax and lighten up and enjoy life. I joined this site because although I am on FB mainly to keep up with my kids, I wanted to be where there are people who understand being forty something. I get kind of tired of the twenty something crowd and their lingo. One thing I suddenly noticed is that I don’t really have any friends to speak of. I hope to make some while on here. Well, my very thoughtfull husband has gone to the trouble of getting a chick flick for me so I must go watch it. will blog later. Have a good evening everyone.

Love it
