The dilemma of whether it's the right time to move out has been weighing heavily on my mind over the past few days. Suddenly, I had a breakthrough. This always happens. If I keep thinking about something, the answer will surely come to me, sometimes days later.
It dawned on me that while my mom has my dad, brothers and daughters-in-law to lean on, my two kids have nobody except me. So it is no surprise that I have to put them as top priority in everything I do, more so when they're still fully dependent on me, no question about that.
Of course, that doesn't mean mom is not a priority in my life. This morning, while driving her to the hospital for her regular check-up, we talked about the house and she's excited and thinks it is a good investment. My dad also feels the time is ripe for me to finally own a place and have the freedom we deserve.
So, it looks like we're all set. The option will be signed and then it's all systems go.
