What did you find odd after they left?

Yes, the utility bills went down and we got to spend more time together (as a couple). There was less noise around the house and fewer loads of laundry. However, the empty chairs at the table where the children used to sit while talking over dinner, were a constant reminder that they had now started a new phase of their lives. It took a while for us to adjust and eating dinner in a different place helped a lot.

The sudden silence was weird when our younger one moved to his dorm. No more daily shower running, soda cans popping, or bedroom doors opening.

Yes, that deafening silence and the sound of the crickets almost made me wail in more than once occasion. I kept looking back and regretting taking them (being around) for granted. Had I known what the empty nest portended, then maybe I would have maximized every opportunity I had. All the same, I have no regrets because they are all doing well, even though it took a while for each of them to fully adjust.

The real feeling of emptiness!  The house feels empty and a part of me feels like something is just missing.  I also have this feeling that I don't know how to describe, it's like I'm just waiting for something.  I don't know what or why.

At some point, I would get anxious and start questioning myself. Despite several calls from the kids, it dawned on us that we missed them a lot. It is much better now, but initially, everything seemed like a tough challenge.
