Hi SaraGreenTea and Feeling Alone....a belated welcome to the forum. Hope you are both doing better now? This empty nest thing can really get some of us down at times but as was mentioned, just try and keep busy and keep moving on. Sooner or later you will find yourself adjusting.


Would love to hear and update from both of  you when/if  you have the time.


Take care!  :tinypinkflowers:

Jeanine, it's so good to hear from you. One of the things I'm really not liking about empty nest is just that weird, new feeling of no one to talk to. No one walking in the door to stay. No one else using the kitchen (my daughter loved cleaning up) etc. etc. I started work today. I'm an ESL teacher (instructor). Today I didn't have students but they'll start tomorrow. I'm not ready even though I know that I'd probably go insane if I didn't have work. :-( Sara

p.s. I hate the way I feel right now. Like there's a fog on my brain, no motivation. I burst into tears now and then. Little things trigger...like coming in the house and closing the door. Locking it because you know no one else is coming home. I'm so very very tired, partly because I've had a shoulder issue all summer and have slept through the night twice in the past 4 months. Sigh. Yes, I'm trying to keep busy and have had some lovely social events, including all 3 of my kids coming home for dinner and cards on Sunday. It's only been a month. I'm telling myself to take it one day at a time. 7:33 and all I want to do is go to bed. :-( Sorry...

Awww Sara,  I know the 'visits' arent they same as them staying.  I really sympathize with you.  One thing about our women brains is we can still be thinking of them, no matter how busy we are.  It's a challenge, but one day at a time dear friend...

Hi Sara thanks for checking in and don't be sorry, those emotions just seem to come in waves sometimes. Just keep telling  yourself to take it one day at a time and sooner or later you'll start having more 'good' days then bad. (sorry about your shoulder, hope it gets better soon so you can get some sleep)


Sounds like you have a great job that should keep you busy but what exactly is an ESL teacher?


Hang in there and don't be sorry about coming here to 'talk', we'll listen.  :grouphugsign:
