It's a company that promotes chemical free cleaning. You clean with just water and a microfiber cloth lined with silver. There's lots of savings for not buying cleaners, soaps and paper towels :D They originate in Norway. I'll see if I can post a link. If not, I'll send it to you on FB, k?

Edit: I clicked and it didn't work, but when I copy and paste, it works. Let me know if you want me to send it on FB.

Dreams, aspirations, goals...

To grow my Norwex business so someday I can stay home again (even tho I like my job!) and so Mister can work less (or stay home too #dream)

To lose my last 10 pounds that I've been saying for a couple years now - and which have grown to 15 emoticon

To spend more time with family - life's too short

I hear ya about wanting the "replay" or "rewind". I sometimes wish I could live some moments over cos it was simpler and happy. I try to savor those kinds of moments now.

I'm Catholic and am doing a series of 'The Best Advent Ever' (short videos, tips, prayers, etc.) for several weeks this Season and they ask us to ask ourselves what our purpose in life is and mention desiring something deeper in life and stuff like that. Pretty interesting take.

When I was younger, I wanted to go to so many places I had read or heard about. Never have made it to all of them. My kids go on vacation trips and cruises but when I think of where I want to go - it's always to where my family is. Most of them are in Hawaii, one daughter and her family is in WA state and I have cousins in TX and MO. But mostly I want to go to Hawaii to spend time with my family. It's not as big a deal to go see Europe or wherever anymore.

Family is the most important.

Restless is great word for what I am feeling!

I get easily disgusted with wasted moments in my life, I guess I want each to "matter"
I need an adventure!

If you could leave tomorrow and travel anywhere in the world,,,,,,where would you go first and what would you want to see or do?

It's not that I am bored, more on the daily list than I can possibly get done each day.
It is more of an internal longing for something that isn't part of life anymore.
Maybe it is just my age.....my youngest is 30 so I have been empty for 11 years.

I have traveled the world, climbed the corporate ladder but none of that compares with the joy that being a mother brings me. My children are my greatest accomplishment in life! I miss the sounds, smells, excitement of life with them in the same house.(No I do not want them to move back home emoticon ) I would just like to hit replay and savor those moments a bit longer.

Honestly when my grandchildren(I have 3,,, 2 an hour away and 1, 7 hours away) come, then go home, I miss my children even more!
I am overjoyed that my children(3) all have great lives, careers, marriages and healthy children! There are just days I long for the way it used to be!

The big sister program is a good idea, have also been kicking around looking into "habitat for humanity" or becoming a red cross volunteer,,,,My DIL is a NICU nurse so volunteering there is an option too. I need to find the balance again!

Lost my mom in March, a 24 year old nephew in October, then my best friend in November so I seem to be questioning living with purpose and examining the fragility of life a little much these days.

blessings!

JustBigJ, do you have grandchildren? Close by? How about babysitting a couple times a week for after school hours? Or tutoring? Or being a Big Brother, Big Sister?

My husband and I are so busy, we cherish quiet time! I homeschooled our youngest and got a full time job 2 years after she graduated from college. He works 6 days a week; I only do 3 ten hour days a week at my full time job and 3 days a month at my part time one, but I have hobbies and side businesses too so not too quiet too often here! emoticon

My empty nest is feeling...empty, lonely and quiet!
How about you?

Although my children have been gone for years, the quietness has really hit us lately.
We are thinking of downsizing, but really hate to leave our "home"
My husband said to me the other morning," this house needs a family!"

Any words of wisdom or random thoughts?

Well, technically maybe it wouldn't have been. My ex husband passed away 12 years ago...so don't really know that's how it would have gone. Either way, it wasn't meant to be.

Loved seeing your wedding dress on FB. It's beautiful. I made 2 of my daughters' senior prom dresses and loved it. But when the youngest asked me to make her wedding dress, I was hesitant - not wanting to mess it up or anything.

Seems I work too much…and really it's only 30 hours a week (but 10 hours a day). When I work a holiday, it messes the normal schedule cos the other gal can only work 40/wk so I get an extra 8. Which is fine, but it really messes with my personal schedule. haha

Dd moved back to her apt with her boyfriend. They had a bed bug infestation, but think that the bug bomb they did got rid of them. They had to throw out their bed and couch. They are sleeping on an air mattress in the living room. I was up there for the second time in one year last week. What a mess. I guess that is how she likes to live. Ugh!

On the good side, she is paying her bills (including two parking tickets) and working almost full-time. A friend said his son got trained in at the store by my daughter.

With just one month left of summer break, my summer job hours got cut to 10 hours from 20 hrs per week. That was unexpected.

More issues with my step-dad's health. He is back at the nursing home recovering from pneumonia. He is positive though and says he hopes to make it through the winter.

I have a tomato almost ripe so I may make a small bowl of salsa this weekend.

Dd has been looking for someplace else to live. She decided to go to the bank to get a home loan. She didn't qualify. One bank (she went to several) told her to apply for a rural development loan. She did and qualified for a loan that will buy her a fixer upper. Her boyfriend and his dad are in construction so between them and dh and I we would be able to get her house fixed up. She will look at some homes next week.

Dh is still working 6 days per week. He did get to have a track day last weekend. He came home so refreshed!

I am helping my mom and Step-dad these days. Rich has cancer and COPD. He is in transitional living now after being in the hospital 5 days. Mom doesn't drive so I had to take her to dr appt. on Tues. I was able to find transportation for her Fri appt. kind of like Medi Van.

My little container garden is coming right along. I have peppers and a few tomatoes on the plants now. Cilantro is coming up too.

Well, not empty nest anymore. Daughter moved home for the summer to save money. She is still gone a lot so it isn't too bad. She does eat some of our low carb snacks and that can be frustrating.

I started a new job for the summer watering plants. I work 20 hrs per week. DH keeps threatening to leave his job. I cringe since he needs to work to pay for his motorcycle racing hobby.

Life--always changing.

Hoorah! My daughter is back in school for management and business. She took 2 online courses for summer and is registered for 3 courses this fall. She is working full-time at a local grocery store as an assistant manager. She loves it.

She and her boyfriend want to earn money so they can rent a house and move from their apartment. We told them they could stain our deck and paint the spare bedroom (aka daughter's Pepto pink room). I will be getting the paint, stain and supplies today. Hoping they truly get those jobs done.

My daughter is thinking about college again. She checked with one of the colleges and found out she only needs to pass two classes to be admitted into the radiology tech program for 2016. This makes me happy. She would be living 2 hrs away, but pursing a degree that she has wanted since 9th grade.

On another note, the scale is still moving down!

New year, let's get talking again! It was so nice to have family home again for Christmas. 92 year old mom and my brother visited from Oregon, my daughter from Texas. She's 25 and has been away for awhile. She seems Sooooooo grown up now. She has her own life which is good to see! Her older sister lives in town, married and it was wonderful to spend Christmas with a 15 month old grandson. So cute, so fun!
What did you do?

I have two grown daughters, one lives nearby and the other several states away. The far away daughter is coming to visit this week! And bringing her boyfriend. Will be nice to see her. She has been away a long time. Last visit was fall to visit her one week old nephew. :)
Christmas visit was via Skype.

Who else here uses Skype to visit with offspring?

I'm a new 'Empty Nester'. My baby girl graduated college last week and moved 1,600 miles away. I have an adult 'kid' at home - I don't think he will ever leave - so the basement of the nest isn't empty.

I'm still here. I gave up on this team for a while because no one was posting. I agree that bad habits are hard to get rid of. I battle daily. I got mad at my husband today so I went on a long drive, when I returned I bought a box of white buttered popcorn and ate the whole thing.

Hi,

Bad habits have returned. I need to get back on track.

Who is still here in the Empty Nest (which is pretty empty, haha)?

Do we have a leader for this team? I don't see any action going on. It's to bad this team isn't active. I am sure there are a lot of empty nest folks out there.

Hello Empty Nesters! I just got back from a trip to New Orleans. Had to try the beignets. Yum! But, now back to plan and losing weight. I am on track to lose 54 pounds. The first 24 went off pretty easily but now I'm slowing down and getting bored. What are you doing to fight diet boredom. Also, I'm having cravings for my old bad habits.

Hey Empty Nesters. We need to get this team motivate. We can do it by supporting each other and checking in daily to make sure we are all reaching our goals.
Stay strong and be positive.

Had a great time in Vegas. Ate too much though so gained back my 2 lbs. But I think I am back where I was before I left. Gotta get more activity in!

Congrats on the weight loss. Keep up the good work. Just don't over do it to much while in Vegas.

Hi everyone. It sure is quiet around here. Let's get going. I know I have been slacking but I'm ready to get to it. I hope everyone has had a good week-end.
