I would like to hear from moms that faced the empty nest and changed their focus.

My 17 year old daughter (the baby) has left the nest. Actually, she left it several months earlier than expected in that she decided to spend her final semester with my husband who is working and living (3 of 4 weeks each month) in the North Dakota oil patch. The good news is Tess is spending quality time with Ron which has not happened for a few years. The bad news is that I am suddenly alone. I knew this would happen next year when Tess went to college. It is hard transitioning from living my life with my daughter as first priority to something else. I have an older son, but when he left home, my daughter was only a toddler. I do work seasonally as a tax accountant. I guess I need to get more involved in outside activities now that I have much more time on my hands. How have other moms coped with the change?
