Well, I am about to turn 44 this week and my "baby" left about 2 months ago. I have 3 children and (at least in my area) I am very young to be in this position. Many of my friends & peers still have children in school, even elementary school, so it is hard find peers I can relate to...

Try taking up a new hobby! Make new friends! Do something you have always wanted to do but didn't have the chance to! Make a bucket list and complete it! These are obviously things I would do! If you want more ideas let me know!

Oh I am! I started preparing for this like 6 years ago, when my oldest was in high school. I am enjoying having the freedom for the most part. Just looking to connect with other moms in my position

I find posts like this hard to understand because I often find myself really looking forward to an empty nest. (Harsh? Try "real"!) Having been sexually abstinent for 14 years, I tell myself that when in four years or so my daughter goes off to university, I'll throw myself back into promiscuity and knowingly putting my life at risk as I indulge my masochistic side. {Although - who am I kidding, planning on doing all that again, when at my age, and at my weight, I'm invisible...]

You are very young indeed. I am 52 with a 7th and 8th grader . I would travel, meet up with my friends in other states, hop back to school-photography , its time to reinvent yourself. You can do this!! When my kids graduate I will be in a wheelchair.
