I would love to say that after almost two weeks of radio silence that I don’t miss him at all but I would be lying. I will say that I don’t miss him near as much as I thought I would. I think that he hurt me bad enough this time that I can finally let him go. I know I need to move on with my life and open myself up to new people and new experiences. I am definitely not ready to date anyone new but I am ready to reclaim my life. I have been looking into the doctoral program at Baylor that I fell in love with and I have figured out that it might not be as unattainable as I originally thought. I have also realized that I need to do some things for me. I just finished my second to last class in my current program and I can’t wait to start the last class in January so that I can finish this program. I don’t think I will be ready to start my doctorate for another year but I definitely want to get myself into a position to work towards that goal. I am not sure where I will be in a few years but I know that it is time to make plans for myself. My daughter will start hearing back from the various universities that she applied to soon and we will have to make a very important decision for her. I just hope that wherever she ends up, she will be happy and get a good education. My life seems to be changing so quickly right now with my daughter about to graduate and my son close behind her. I never needed him. I wanted him and that’s the real difference. I would have gone to the ends of the earth for him but not anymore. I think I am finally done!!
