Hi,

My name is Delilah and I am new to this site and pritty new to the internet, so I realy don't know how things work yet.  But I have 3 adult children, two boys 28,22, & a girl 21.  I have been married for 25 years and my husband and I and 22yr old son just moved to Jacksonville Fl. from Louisville Ky.  My other two stayed behind in Ky and I miss them very much, especially my daughter.  Now I am the only female in a house of 4 males (husband, son, and 2 of my sons friends staying temp) So not only new in town with no friends, job, (which my hubby dosn't want me to get)  now there's no girls to talk to or go shopping with either.  You ever tried to shop with your husband or son for clothes ect.. they get aggravated when you say "well i have to try them on" So even though I love the new house with a pool in the yard its still kinda lonely being the only girl, and with them grown up I have nothing to do anymore.  I do have 1 German shepherd  dog, and now have 7 cats. (but its not quite the same).

Welcome to the group Michele,
We'll help you get through this so hang in there :)

Quoting feelinbeautiful:

Hi, I'm Michele.  Have 6 kids between us (24, 22, 21, 18, 16 & 15 - 1 boy) & 2 granddaughters!  Another one on the way - hoping for a grandson!!!!

Anyway, we have 3 out of the nest and another leaving this week for college crying mini.  This is going to be soooo hard on me!  She is my 2nd to leave the nest & I'm NOT dealing with it well.  My 3 are the middle ages.....hubby already had 2 out when we married.  His youngest (15) lives with her mother.

I'm hoping to hear encouraging wise words of how it's going to be ok.  it's all for the good of the apples.  But it's killin' me to let go.....booohooo I know!

Wish me luck Fri & Sat. & if you hear of flooding in Tucson, Az this weekend it's just me crying!!   LOL

Welcome to the group Tracy,
Hopefully things get better where you are living now :)

Quoting trac70:

Hi,

I am a mom of four. I have a 21yr old daughter, a 19yr old son, a 12yr old son and a 9yr old son. My two oldest are out of the house, well MY house. They both have moved in with their father who lives about 4hrs away. I live with my husband and two youngest children. I am having alot of difficulty dealing with my two oldest being so far away. I am just not adjusting well at all. Here's the thing, WE moved four hours away not the oldest two. So, we have no roots where we are. Basically, I hate it here. We have been here for a year. I am having a hard time finding friends and I just don't feel connected here. I feel really isolated and like my life is back where we used to live.

So this is my attempt at talking to other mom's who have grown children and see how they made it through the transition.

Thanks,

Tracy

Hi my name is Debbie am a widow who is living with my daughter.  Whemn my youngest son got married and I was all alone.  My kids were worried about me since the place I lived in was falling apart as was the neighborhood.  I decided to go back to school and get some kind of degree.  I am still working on that.  I moved from Fla to South Carolina.  My daughter and I are getting along fine and getting to know each other alot better.  I am also getting to know my granddaugher as she is going to be living with us from now on

I have never been happier.  It will be good however to chat online with someone just like me

Hi My Name is Robin  I am 48 married 25 very long  years I have two kids  a daughter age 25 married 4 years  with  two kids of her own ages 2 ( girl) and age 6 months ( girl)

My son is 23 living with his girl friend and their  little Girl age 1

My biggest sadness is  My Daughter who lives  next door she is so much like her father it breaks my heart.. I cook dinner for her every night , I watch the girls  thur fri and sat nights  frm  3 pm to 1-2 am .Then i have to get up for work at 5 am and work till 1 pm I am not  well I have many medical  problems, yet I try to help as much s possible. Most days  she  drops off her 2 yr old to me for she says she is Tired & well My daughter is just  lazy, when i  rarely tell her not today  she  blows up on me. I have been disabled for  12 yrs  recently I  have tried to go back to work for the 465. I receive monthly is just not enough especially when  my daughter  needs  diapers  or formula , what upset me is she never ever pays me back always saying she  ( they are broke) yet every day she  buys fast food for lunch,I love my Grand daughters so much they are my reason for living,  yet there  are days I would love to disappear from it all. She never ever helps me out  with dinner dishes  or pick up after the kids, how can I get her to help me ?  SHE TELLS ME  SHE DOES NOT have to help for she does not LIVE HERE . With all the degrading  stress verbal abuse from my  husband  and  now working tending to the grand kids I am burning out fast and becoming very depressed how can I get her to see I need her help and to pay me back
