Hello! Happy Spring

Hi, is anyone still out there in Mimiland?

Take a look around, I've given the blog a fresh spring makeover, I hope you like it.

I've spent the past several years focusing on my pet blogs and now I feel like it may be time to devote some time to Screaming Mimi.

I'm at a turning point in my life right now. You could call it a mid-life crisis, but I'm trying to look at it as the beginning of my next chapter.
John, me, Jack
I say 'trying' because I'm still dealing with the changes that got me here.  My boys are young men. 
John and Ed
John is 22 and living with his boyfriend Ed about 45 minutes away. He's been gone a little over a year but I'm still not used to it and I still miss him every day.
Jack
Jack spends 50% of his time at his dad's house. Add to that the fact that he's 18, a Senior year in high school with a job and an adorable girlfriend and that doesn't leave much time for dear old mom no matter how you slice it.
Jack and Rachel
They're busy, they don't need their mumma like they used to. *wah wah*
Chris and me
Since I don't have a job I have way too much time on my hands. I have to find new projects to focus on.  Hopefully the first one will be beginning my personal makeover.

Compared to most of my peers I had my kids young. At 46 I have the opportunity to figure out who I am. I can to focus on getting myself healthy mentally and physically, determine what I want to do next and spend time with Chris focusing on our relationship.

Hopefully 2014 will be the year I finally get a life!

*I'm waiting for my signature to be added to my new design

Hugs & Love,
Mimi

Yay! You're back!!!

I know this transition period is terribly hard. Bellaboo was my extra blessing baby, and I'm not sure I would have coped well with the two older kids leaving if it hadn't been for her. But don't think for one minute that your boys don't need you anymore!!! Sure they will spread their wings and soar out on their own....and then realize just how much they DON'T know, lol! Trust me, they will be calling MOM for help and advice.

Big hugs and enjoy this next chapter!

Hi again Mimi,
You and I are the same age - and yes this is time to sort ourselves out. Keep in mind you have created two wonderful boys who love you. You have a terrific man too. Be a little selfish and focus on what you want. I can't wait to see what you get up to. I'll be watching!!!
