My husband is adjusting much better. He enjoys that we have more time to spend together as a couple. He also is rediscovering hobbies he put on the back burner while the kids were little. We've converted one of the kid's bedrooms into a guest room and now he's eyeing another for a "media room." I told him to keep his hands off it. It's still to soon for me.
Whenever I start to feel sorry for myself I remind myself that the kids are EXACTLY where I want them to be. They're in school, meeting new people, living somewhat independently, learning new things everyday. That is what makes it easier.
I hope it all goes well for you.
My husband is a cancer survivor so getting more involved in some of the volunteer orgs around here - the hospital and such. There are so many things one can do! And now the time to do it! :) I'm thrilled... Truly.
Ok, now with that said. I am enjoying the alone time but it is too damn quiet around here. I keep the TV on for noise....like in White Noise. I have good days and sad days....I usually stick my nose in a book until the sadness passes...and it does pass eventually.
One bit of advice, get a famliy cell phone plan. That helps. We talk alot more now than when they were moody teenagers at home.
I am enjoying the more free time. No more running around to the kids activities or waiting to pick them up from practice when they are finished. Now I get home from work and I start dinner, do wash, dishes or just sit down and read or watch a littel bit of TV. Then later I head to the gym for some exercise. Plus now I can snuggle more with my hubby and not get comments from the kids.
Since my daughter and her boyfriend have left they actually come over more (mainly looking for a home cooked meal) and talk instead of arguing. We all have cell phones so we can keep in touch that way.
