Featured Five Minute Friday:
Here’s the deal. Five Minute Friday. You go find the little prompt at the wonderful Lisa-Jo’s blog, set the time and write for five minutes, and then just stop. Where you are, no edits, just publish raw words.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat ā€“ no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on the word:::

My daughter, my youngest child, is in her last semester of college. In a few short months, she will be a college graduate and a certified math teacher. While I look forward to not having to pay for tuition, apartment rent & books, I’m not sure I’m ready for her to be an REAL adult. I know she will do well. She is ready to begin the work she has been training for the past four+ years. She’s ready to find a teaching position and move into her own apartment. And, I’ll have my house all to myself. For the first time in twenty-six years, I’ll be living alone.

This is the last semester of complaining about papers that SHE owes to professors. The last semester to pretend she’s an adult. The last semester to totally depend upon mom. This is the last semester and the last little chick will soon leave the nest.
