For the past 25 years I have been a stay-at-home mom. My "kids" are 24 and 22 and even though they haven't quite moved out yet (daughter will be this Sept) and our son is talking about wanting to live in the city to finish his 4th year of University, I already feel like my job is done and I kind of feel useless now. Nobody needs mothering anymore, they don't need me to organize their lives and frankly I hover too much. My whole focus has been raising them, with my husband, and now I just feel like I have no purpose. I have no idea what I'd like to do, nothing seems to grab me. I just want to feel needed again! My husband and I have a great marriage, that's not a problem, but he is busy with his career still, and I'm seem to be just filling my days with my to-do list jobs until a good show comes on tv at night.
