There are a lot of reasons for absences around here. One may just get tired of the day to day fights around here and decide to take a break for awhile, one might find someone that they'd like to develop a relationship with, so they are looking into that for awhile, one might just be fed up the looking so they decide to take a break from it for awhile. Or they could be like me and have a big life change and had to get accustomed to it to function again.

I've been waiting for this day for years and years. BOTH OF MY KIDS FINIALLY MOVED OUT. I am now living by myself for the first time in my life. Not in my mother's house, not in the house with my husband, not in a house with my kids, nope, not me. Just me and Sassy here in this house. (Sassy is a 3 and a half pound Chihuahua) I have never felt so free in my life. And like a Wal-Mart. My kids seem to think they can come to my house to shop for anything and everything they need. I'm thinking that I may need to be reigning in those keys that have gotten out and into the hands of my kids. So my fridge can't be raided when I'm at work, or my basement can't be the bargin basement of the century. What do you think?

I've also got it into my head that I might actually find myself a man now that I'm childless. But that is the scary part of this too. lol What if I don't find someone? What if I'm stuck here, just me and Sassy? Will I now become the middle-aged lady on the hill with the chihuahua with many sweaters? (You know as tiny as she is she gets cold)

Guess this will be the new chapter in my life and you guys are gonna be the unwilling companions in it whether you like it or not. lol Sorry. But it's not like I have that many friends to help me through this. Unchartered territory for me. Any advice?

First get real comfy with your own company and then they will show up as soon as you don't care if you have one or not..

Yep Sam is right...............

Living by yourself can be real interesting but it also gives you a whole new freedom, you can come and go as you please, fix what you want to eat for every meal, no fighting, anything on tv you can now rule the remote.......enjoy it and take time to find out the things you like and dislike.....its like a whole new world.........

Change the locks on your doors. Get a large tv and your choice of hd movie player.. sit back and watch all your favorite movies as loud as you possibly can.... Stock up on all those great munchies you always wanted to have but never got a chance to get to when u had people in the house and enjoy the freedom...

Its what i did. and it was awesome. 20 years old, 56inch tv and i watched everything from independence day and air force one to I, Robot and Hitman... it will teach my neighbors to have a party lasting till 4 am on a sunday again.

I've been a widow for 5 years now after a 30 year marriage. Being alone took some getting use to and for awhile I hit the panic button and went sorta crazy. My advice? Take it slow and easy...get to know who you are besides "mom" and "wife" will find some very delightful things about yourself and yes....the FREEDOM is a heady my age, I don't think I ever wanna change my lifestyle...I love the solitude and peace.

As for the kiddies? You'll have a few years of the "in and out....can ya store this....can I have that...what ya got to eat...." but that will diminish with time...I think.. At least mine did but it took a long time and lots of patience. Ya just hoard the alone time between pitter patter of grown feet invading ur space.

A really good friend gave me a great piece of advice once. She said, "In order to take on a new relationship, you have to be comfortable being alone with yourself, first!"
Congratulations on the kids moving out! Now...take a lot of time for yourself- concentrate on things you feel you may have missed out on. Take a class. Take a vacation. Anything YOU want to do....
And like the squirrel said, when you're comfy with yourself, the men will start ringing your doorbell!

There you are!!! I was wondering about you! Glad to know you're doing well!

I envy you in that you are free...though at the same time I will say it's hard to think about the last one growing up and out. I'm not sure what to do about your alone-ness, but I think staying open to possibilities will be key. I know you'll be fine!

I know you're probably feeling many different things, and I hope excitement is at the forefront.
Just try to enjoy starting a new chapter in life, relax and take advantage of some solitude.

The ladies are right, too. Don't look too hard and get comfortable with yourself and when it happens, it will be awesome!!!

Quit thinking of being by yourself as being "stuck". Take charge of your life and make it exactly what you want it to be. Finding a companion should be a bonus, not your primary goal. That way......... you're not wasting time waiting for it to happen.
