2012 has been about change.
It's not easy. But, it's often inevitable.
In the next few weeks I'll be leaving two communities I've had such strong ties to for so long. Jack is graduating from 5th grade—we've been part of PS41 for 9 years. And Iz is graduating middle school. I've been PTA president there for almost 3.
People I've seen every morning will no longer be part of daily routine. In fact, my daily routines which have been set in stone for almost as long as I can remember will be over in 2 plus weeks.
I'm not embracing it. But I'm working hard not to be frozen by it.
For me that's a huge step.
