Hello, Is Anybody There?

So I sit and wonder where are all the empty nest people lurking these days? I am assuming that there must thousands of people who blog daily while sitting in their empty little houses. Maybe they are secretly blogging behind a desk at work, but drive home to find a pet and maybe a spouse. I tell myself that it's just me and that really, there are some baby boomer blogging parties going on as we speak, I just lost the invitation or the host/hostess does not know who the hell I am.

When I Google 'empty nest Moms' I get about four or five blog sites, most of which mention the empty nest but then go on to offer up a prayer or describe a seventeen-step recipe for a heart-healthy dinner. I'm just not feeling the love!

If you are a person who's children no longer live at home, will you please come to my "house" for drinks or something else that could be considered fun? My house feels particularly empty today. I am thinking about calling the kids and ask how their days have been. Maybe they are missing the company, too. But I kind of doubt it. They are all enjoying life to the fullest right now and to hear that I went to Trader Joe's today and plan to walk the dog in 45 minutes isn't exactly riveting conversation.

Okay, so maybe this is a whiny, slobbering little post. That's what I feel today and isn't that what you're supposed to do...write about your true emotions and troubles?

Just the thought of having my kids leave scares the crap out of me!!! I don't want to be one of those stalking moms that calls their children 3 times a day!!! My mom did that at first and it drove me batty....
Hang in there...your can do whatever you want...hey, get naked and dance around the house. That'll make you feel better!?!

Beth, you are more than welcome to come and visit my overflowing nest any time, as long as you bring the booze and promise to watch the kids.

Hey, just as soon as I get off work you and I can hang out. I am an empty nester with a twist. Oldest daughter and I moved in together with her two kids. So I am a midlifer (man I hate that word) and you are welcome at my place anytime. Bring vino.

Heh, heh. My word verification is beeterd. :)))) Too funny. Oh, and disgusting.

Ahh,Beth!If I lived in Arizona I'd be at your house every week,tippin' a few back with you:)
My experience may not nearly qualify as an "empty nest" but I have had my stepdaughter since before she was a year old and everytime she goes home to her mom and step-dad's house I feel a little pang of pain until she comes back.The house just isn't as lively! She is only 7,so I can't imagine how it will be when she is old enough to be on her own and only come over when she feels like it!I sure wish this body of mine would have allowed me to have kids but in a fateful way I believe that's why she is in my life (looonnngggg story) but let's just say that before I met my hubby,he made her and we didn't know she existed until she was 7 months old (now that's a story sista') LOL
Have an awesome day,Rach
