We were out back at the King’s Road Brewery, when Shani said…
“This can’t be our future, you know. Staring at each other across the table at brewpubs three times a week.”
It’s really weird. I’ve been writing this blog for 8 years and it’s all been about raising kids. The tension, the celebration, the frustration, the failures….all of it. But really, the job is done. At this point it’s on them. We can help, sure, but any issue they have is really theirs to work through. I feel like we’ve done a great job, but the job is over and here we are…staring at each other in brewpubs.
Which leaves me with…Now what?
Honestly, I don’t know. Honestly, I’m a little lost. I don’t have some pithy takeaway; all I’ve got is a sense of unease. And bad news/good news/whatever news…it’s occurred to me that it’s the most interesting thing about my life right now. Which means that’s what I’m gonna write about.
So buckle up, cause here we go.

I knew when I wrote to you on your 50th birthday that your future would come to this! Well Alex isn’t quite out of the house yet and with his medical issues you have to stay in that picture but he is so mature and capable that your job is easier. In any case the fun is just beginning. Of course you have your elected post but you have lots else to look forward to!
Here comes the next best time of your life!
I’m following – feeling the same way and Cosette is only 13! 🙂
Rick and I talk about this all the time!
That was quite a tease –
Your one of “those people with the dogs” at the brew pubs?
