I was an empty nester once and was just getting to a point where I might enjoy it and the oldest one came back, with 2 kids and pregnant with a third. She has been here 3 years, when the agreement was long enough for her to have the 3rd baby and go to school for about a year to improve herself. Then the youngest one came back. well here we are 3 years later and finally the oldest is moving out again. The youngest moved out about 6 months back. Do I have to downsize to get them to stay out this time or do I have to be really mean? cuz I am not mean. I have the biggest heart my friends have ever known, I am told. My husband is irritated and just wants to kick them out and say stay out. I can't do that. I hope to be an empty nester again in July. Any suggestions?
