I am 16 years younger than my partner, but I guess my kids think of me about his age. I would love to hear someone give me some advice on keeping my kids out of my business without hurting their feelings. Believe me, the day will come (maybe) that I would welcome their assistance. But, now after years of care of my partner and going thru Hospice with him, I am finally having my home to myself and no constant workload involved in caring for a loved one. My guy was sweet and never nasty but care giving is tiring even at its best. I will miss him, but I want to travel now. I know my kids are just trying to make sure I am ok, but they overdo it. Suggestions on how to say it nicely to my kids....LEAVE me alone and to myself for awhile. I do not care to get involved with anyone and I just want to have MY LIFE now.
