The feeling I have when my children are all gone, off living their lives. The house is extra quiet at least until one of the dogs barks at nothing. Learning to adjust to an empty house is harder than I thought it would be. Finding ways to fill my time is becoming easier as I rediscover the things I love that I have pushed aside to do other mom things.

  1. My twins will be leaving the house next year. I’m not happy about it. I LOVE the noise, commotion and chaotic pace of my life as it is today. I thrive off the craziness of having twin teenagers in the house. It helps a great deal that they are great kids, both of whom I genuinely like to be around. My wife and I are polar opposites, on this subject. She can’t wait for them to be out. I’m really not looking forward to it.


  2. I can’t imagine how hard it is to adjust to such a change, good for you for embracing it and rediscovering old interests!

    As much as the chaos that is my life can drive me crazy, I am dreading the days when my house will be empty. I’m glad you’re rediscovering old interests to fill your new-found time.
