There are just times that I wonder which direction that I’m headed in life. So much, and nothing, will change in the next year or so. When Dragon takes flight and leaves, what will Monkey and I do with our selves? I’m not talking about empty nest here. I mean that we will no longer be tied down to the place we are living and many options that I have not seriously considered will be more viable. We could travel. Or we could just relocate. Or we could just stay where we are and keep things going just the way that we have been. Just been wondering lately which direction I will want to take when that fork in the road arrives. I love my job and really have no desire to find another one. Yet, moving around and seeing the country sounds like it would be exciting and fun. There is a lot that Monkey and I didn’t do when we first got together. We could go and do some of those things here soon, if we wanted to. I just don’t know. There are a bunch of choices. So maybe it isn’t a fork in the road. Maybe it is a tree that is spreading out its branches of possibilities. Maybe that’s how life always is and it just takes these kinds of moments for us to realize that.

  1. I’m in that same boat. The Boy will graduate soon and go off and have his own adventures. This is the longest I’ve lived anywhere and it was to provide him stability. But I’m chomping to go!


    • Yeah, Monkey and I decided to stay here so that Dragon could go to school on one place (a place we felt had a good school system). But in another year… Who knows? You like traveling? I really haven’t done a lot myself. I moved some as a kid, but young enough that I only recall one move. And the moves I made as an adult were all within a few years while the Monkey and I tried to get ourselves stable when we first got together. Now the idea of travelling seems alien but a little exciting too.


  2. My entire childhood we moved every 3-4 years. So this has been really alien to live in the same city for 17 years. It’s been really nice, but you can create a lot of baggage in that time. There are places in town and activities I don’t go to because I might bump into a certain ex. I’ve never had that experience before. I’ve been threatening to try to winter over in Antarctica once he turned 18 if I was single. Now I’ve got to put my money where my mouth is and start applying. Gulp!
