Hi everyone. I am brand new the the boards and to this site. I just love meeting new people and enjoy insight from others!
I hope you don't mind - I don't have any children - yet! My dh and I have been married for almost two years. But I hope to be a mom someday, and look forward to all I can learn on here!

Welcome to all the newcomers!

PrairieRose - I too am starting to have some of my kids leave the nest. I have four children, and two have left so far. The oldest at home is gone some evenings, and when the youngest spends the night at a friends the house it is so quiet around here. I am starting to think about what kind of hobbies to get back into that I had given up over the years so I have something to do in my spare time.
Have a great day... Debra Sox

Hey everyone, thanks for the warm welcome. I am looking forward to *hanging out* here and making some new friends. I'll be posting on the other threads as well.

Workatmomof4: GET READY! It's very different than I imagined the empty nest would be. I had envisioned having much more time to do whatever I wanted to do......! Granted I don't cook/clean/do laundry as much as I used to the days still just fly by. It's not all bad, I'm enjoying the quiet more now than earlier in the year . You still have a little while (what 2-4 yrs.?) to go so you'll be adjusting in the meanwhile. I know what you mean about the older kids being out and about all of the time.....I guess that's part of the weaning process for us all. I look forward to hearing more from you, and everyone here.

MrsManiac, that is soooo neat! Have you ever read the book, 'How Green Was My Valley', by Richard Llewellyn? that's where my name came's a great story. I just know you'd love it. And hey, if you're Heinz 57, there just may be some Welsh blood in your family!

Kimmyo, thank you for the warm welcome. I do appreciate it. Say, didn't you say you live in Alabama? My DD was born in Birmingham, lived there for five years, and also lived in Huntsville, where my ex and his family still live...we get along well now.
We used to live down in Five Points, the historical part of downtown. I miss the Krispy Kremes, both there and in Birmin'ham, still!
