Empty Nest

Debbie - posted on 02/15/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have been teaching for 29 years and I still love it just like I did the day I started. I don't like what they have done to education but I still like to teach. I always loved coming home and sitting at the table and hearing about my girl's day. Then, I loved seeing them coming home with clothes for me to wash and us catching up on things. One got married this summer and the other got an apartment this summer. I am so proud for them but my little chatty birds are gone. I get a phone call everyday but now I know why they made the statement"Empty Nest". My husband and I have watched a lot of movies and talk about how we better enjoy the peace. Someday we know that grandbabies will fill our home and the system will start all over again but it sure is quiet right now.

I know that feeling!

My younger daughter started Uni in September and it is SO QUIET here! My older one is still at uni and usually visits each week, but the younger one is much further away and can only visit occasionally!
