Every Day Conversations / Re: Hey MaryB!!! How are ya?

That's good that your son considers you like that.  My son let Mother's day pass even though this was the first one in 9 years that he has been in my life.  Then 2 weeks later I guess his conscience got to him and he got me a flower and said it was for mother's day.  That or he wanted to honor his dad for Father's day so he felt he better..who knows!  I just know this young man is not the same young man he was before he got with those crazy family!

I wonder if our sons realize how important a hug from them is to us...I remember, "walking on egg shells" for a little bit when Chris came back. It's also probably harder to have them living with you than not living with you, like my son. Chris is the one who always calls and he wants to give me one of his computers too..sweet. He also knows that I'm trying to get a job, he's really kind about that..keeps making me feel good even though I feel awful not having a job yet.

I have to hold back from hugging him.  He is standoffish so I cant but yea I am so glad he is back in my life..  He has me running in circles.  I hear other son's that do for the mom but this one seems to think I live to wait on him, but after losing him once you can bet I'll do it.  He has changed so much because my old son would never treat me like this.

It is hard to catch up with debt sometimes. I know my son has some cc debt. At least he's working and working toward the goal of getting his own place, that's great! You can understand how he feels having to move home but I'm sure he appreciates having a home to get to stay in while he's figuring out how to move on! It's temporary for him and I'm sure you just love having him home!! When Chris was home last October, I just couldn't get over the idea that each morning I could see him sleeping in my home again, even though it was temporary. It helped me feel much better!

Oh yes, he has worked since he got here.  He has always carried a job.  But he came in with such debt, that unless he gets that taken care of he cannot afford to move out and according to him it's horrible to live with his parents...   :dunno:  but he has his own ways!  Like he tells me often, he is a grown man now!   :017:

Hi! I hope she keeps on healing..that must have been scary. It's hard sometimes to figure out what our kids are thinking or planning to do with their future. I feel like I'm more often here to just listen to him and I guess sometimes he actually takes my advice!? Does he have any plans on going anywhere? Is he working while he's at home?

 :039:  I am here.  Been dealing with a sick pup the past couple months.  She just had surgery the 17th so thank God is recovering. 
My son is standoffish.  He sticks to himself mostly, on that phone!   :dunno:
You are right, they are different.  I see the decisions he is making with his money and want to scream.  At this rate he may never be able to get his own place!

Empty Nest.."What's Next" for you?? / Re: Taking the Plunge!
« Last post by nvgt16 on Yesterday at 05:16:00 PM »
Hope you are enjoying your time volunteering! I have 3 kitties that are the world to me. They were my sole companions as we drove from RI to Fl last November! It's also a good way to check out the dogs/cats to see which one/s you might want to adopt when you are ready! Plus, you are making all the animals feel very special by spending time with them!! Enjoy!

Our Empty Nest / Re: Feeling Lonely
« Last post by nvgt16 on Yesterday at 05:10:52 PM »
I totally understand how you feel, I was the same way before I moved from RI to Fl last year. What helped me was that I joined a few, "Meetup" groups and then had some fun things to do on the weekends. Down here where I live in Fl, there aren't as many Meetup groups nearby but I had one friend down here, so we do things together every once in awhile. I generally meet up at the pool with some other people I've met since I came down here. I hope to join an online dating site sometime in the future. Hope it helps!

Every Day Conversations / Re: Coping Up With Technology

Hi, what helps me keep up with technology is the computer club that I joined here in Sun City Center. Not only are they able to help me fix problems with my computer but they also offer inexpensive courses to learn about the new technology.
