We are moving my youngest daughter to college! She is the last to leave the nest so I am officially an empty nester. I do not know what I will do with my time, although over the last couple of years, I have had a glimpse into this upcoming period of my life. Summer has not needed me so much since she began to drive a couple of years ago. And I have relinquished a lot of my school mom activities and responsibilities as the girls got older. I was always the room mom when they were in elementary school. I organized the seasonal parties, called the other mothers for assistance, bought the teacher gifts, chaperoned school field trips and dances, and sent homemade cookies to class about once a month. I made sure my girls were happy and had a great learning and socializing experience in school. Now, I may call expertsatellite and add some more cooking and travel channels for my viewing since I will have so much extra time on my hands now!
