Fall is coming…Oh yes, it is…

I know you probably don’t want to hear this but it’s almost SEPTEMBER. The munchkins are back in schools already, the scholars are off to college leaving some moms and dads as empty nesters. It’s a weird feeling, but you will get over it, trust me, I did. Oh, it took me a while, but just as we were getting used to it, one moved back and brought his soon to be wife with him. She’s a sweetheart and we love her dearly. They have since gotten married, bought a house, had twins, etc.

I’m just saying that the empty, ‘I don’t know what to do with myself’ feeling when they are first gone, will subside and things will change. I have learned over time that the only constant in life, is change. Nothing ever really stays the same. For instance, we are trying to sell our house and move back to the town we lived in when we got married. We both know that the saying ‘you can’t go home again’ is true, things have changed and won’t be the same as we remember them, but things have remained enough the same so that it feels like coming home again. You can still stop at the general store and run into someone you know, or go to the dump and run into someone you haven’t seen since you moved away 30-years ago.

And with the empty nest comes fall and pumpkins and colorful falling leaves, the county agricultural fair, and then frost on those pumpkins. So you see, fall is coming, oh yes, it is…
