WOW!! Absolutely wonderful, sensible and helpful advice!! You've got the right attitude! Thanks so much from all the empty-nesters! I hope they see your message!
Hahaha!! Good one, Shauna!
Wonderful advice, very beautifully said. Any couple would do well to take heed. There truly are any number of avenues for empty-nesters to explore. It only takes a little push and a dose of confidence. Thank you, Yvette!
Right you are GF!...I never really had a 3-second chance at an empty nest! I'm still waiting actually. Instead of GOING AWAY....I keep getting more and more "kids everywhere". They're surrounding me! HELP!
Hi Dzy! If I recall (which is not as easy as it used to be!!)...the only time I really got down and out and bawled my heart out was when my first born went off to college. After that I adjusted for the rest of them!! LOL
Readmike....Have you read Shauna's comment? She's left some suggestions straight from the heart of a "wild child!" LOL....You & your wife might like her advice!!! LOL
Yes savvy.....Sounds like it certainly worked out well for both you and your son! Wonderful!
word55....Once my grandchildren started arriving.....I never thought they'd STOP!!! LOL
You're right on target, Express and absolutely correct!!
Jackie......I really like your suggestions! Having a dog and cat myself, I sometimes feel like I'm STILL raising kids!! LOL
I have 2 sons who live locally with their families.....and 2 out of State. We definitely keep in touch and visit at least twice a year. It takes time to "adjust," but everything seems to fall into place! Thanks for your great response!
