Sharon’s Blog : Boys growing up/Finding Mom

Has it been two months again?? And I’d promised not to be AWOL again.  Promises, promises, huh?

Since I last wrote, my oldest son has started his senior  year of high school and is just finishing up college applications, while my middle son started his freshman year of high school and is (thankfully) making that tough transition from middle school very well (thankfully). My youngest, age 8, is in second grade, and though, that’s gone okay, it’s not been as smooth as I’d hoped and expected. He had the same teacher for K and 1st and was in combo class for two years with the same students; this year he has a new teacher, and the combo class kids have been separated into different second grade classes with only one of them in my son’s class with him. So it is taking some adjustments.

I’ve also been working on my next book, which means spending a lot of time on the computer. Since the back surgery I had in August, I’ve switched computer chairs and have been more aware of my posture while typing since I think bad ergonomics at the computer contributed greatly to my back problem. My back and left shoulder and arm feel pretty good, though I still have spasms in the shoulder from time to time — just some mild jumping that reminds me to take it easy. Comes in as a great excuse sometimes though like when I recently played racquet ball for the first time with my good friend, Robyn.  Lots of fun, but a racquet ball player I am not.
