    Default What now?

    Four of my five kids (the four that were currently with us, the 5th was already in Nebraska) left today for Nebraska to visit both sets of grandparents for 5 weeks (18 days each place actually, very equitable). Now, after 6 hours without them, I feel like, "what now?" I was looking forward to their trip. They are going to have a great time. Nebraska for Fourth of July is more fun. Swimming is more fun (because it's hot). But the next few days are going to be an adjustment. Not sure I can scrap with their pictures right now, either. I'm glad I have another 11 years before the youngest leaves for college. I don't think I'm going to like an empty nest. Thanks for listening.

    so sorry hon...it will get a bit better as the days go on. i use to love those days of a break, and then my youngest went to college and graduates this winter and empty nest hit me big time...so spend as much time as possible with them now...and take advantage of the breaks...use them wisely to relax, recharge, and take care of things that are easier to do while they are gone

    guess I'm a tad late

    Thanks everyone! It's nice to read the cheery words. They all made it safely to Nebraska. I always feel better when the plane lands. Having 4 of 5 on the same plane made me nervous. Em, I hope we do get a chance to meetup! It's really too bad we have to find a place and find time to move during our 5 week break!

    So glad they all made it safely. Can you Skype with them? I'm with Ginger, they drive me crazy, but once they leave....boohoo, I'm so sad! LOL.

    You know hubs and I never left spent overnight on a getaway ever since the 3rd was born....much to my hubs dismay. I told him we have all the time to do that when they are grown, have families of their own, or don't want to be around us..lol. Besides, if we ever do go anywhere, I really want the kids with us.

    I feel the same way..they drive me nuts, but when they are away I missed them and they are all I can think about!! In fact most of my alone time is going to the store and it always seems I am trying to buy something for them or fine something they would like
