Gone like grown or gone like out for the night? When our kids are both grown we plan to buy an rv and travel. :) When they are spending the night out I just go to bed early. Lol

Get a hobby or a job....just something you enjoy doing.  If you just sit around the house, you are going to go crazy!

Now its time for you . To find you and your passions for life. Join those groups you used to dream about. Take a class or two on something that interests you. Connect with friends that are in the same boat.Rekindle your marriage. Travel, sit in the sun, drink wine, skinny dip in the pool whatever you desire.This is your time !

Take clases you always wanted to take, find a job or start up  a hobby.  Tons of things to do just have to figure out how to keep busy until the grand kids start coming over.

I had a life before kids, while the kids were home, and now that they are gown and leaving I will continue to enjoy the things I've always enjoyed.  My kids were (and still are) very important to me, but they were never the only thing in my life.  I tried to be more well-rounded then that.  Go out and find something you can be passionate about, the sky's the limit.

When my kids are gone I will probably be a homemaker lol. I know we will start traveling that's for sure.

Think of a cause you car about and volunteer.  Or find a part-time job doing something you enjoy.  Or start a new hobby.

 Sounds like it's time for hobbies!  Try taking up knitting or crocheting, and you can start making adorable baby clothes and blankets for your future grandchildren.
