So I found this article and I thought it was an interesting read–especially in light of the title of this blog. We are not having our mom’s midlife crisis, because for most of us, we are at a different stage in our lives than our moms were at the same age. By the time my mother was my age, all her kids were young adults, no longer living at home. At the same age, I have a thirteen year old, and I’m still in the trenches of raising another human being, while trying to figure out how I’m going to make the most of my second act.
Fair warning, it’s a pretty long article. I usually only read things that I can fit into a Fixer Upper commercial break, so it took me a while to get through. But I was comforted to know that I’m not the only one crying everyday, or dealing with seemingly unreasonable anger and anxiety. There are no easy answers, but I feel a bit better knowing I’m not alone. Also, the two glasses of wine helped.
Lol I am conflicted. I would not miss the monthly murder scene mess yet I’m not sure how to…
