    Hanging out with my family all day. Related: when your parents live in an empty nest, they get it a dog and sta loving it more than you.

  2. Irene says

    The difference in attitude is stark. It highlights the question of how much a writer can guard inner self/loved ones and still, well, write (or rather write with authenticity). More difficult in poetry than a novel, maybe? Just read your Empty Nest joke and enjoyed it very much. Let out such a loud sigh after reading it that my grandson became so concerned he stopped talking about Star Wars (for a nano-second)

  3. David Risley says

    I had a Garage Sale few months ago to cleanse & remove the clutter plus made a few bucks at the same time. No More clutter

  4. Looking Forward says

    If anything, I’d been rather looking forward to the day when the last of our four boys would leave home, and my wife and I would have the house and our lives to ourselves.

  5. says

    Mourning doves are very sweet. They make a soft cooing sound that sounds a little sad. The ones in our yard are always seen in pairs and eat at our feeder and often perch on our deck.

    My parents are really excited to see to me. Their empty nest syndrome hits them in the spring b/c there aren’t football games to come to.

    “When did kids become the equivalent of second-hand smoke? Blame a wave of childless adults with money to spare. “Empty nesters continue to wield a huge swath of discretionary spending dollars, and population dips in first-world countries mean more childless couples than ever,” writes AdWeek’s Klara.

    Catering to the child-free community may be good for business but is it good for parents? It could help narrow choices and make kid-friendly environments even kid-friendlier. And let’s be honest, babies won’t miss flying first class. They won’t even remember it. But their moms and dads will.

    Most parents with young children have self-imposed limits on spending and leisure. This new movement imposes limits set by the public. And the public isn’t as child-friendly as it used to be. As businesses respond to their new breed of ‘first-class’ clientele, are parents in danger of becoming second-class citizens?”
