I just decided to Google "homeschool empty nest" and
I found your post. Sounds like you know exactly
what I am going through. I know it's been a few
months, and I don't know if you'll even see this,
but I need to unload to someone, and don't know
where else I can! :)

I actually have been feeling this for a couple years
now. My youngest is 16, and the 18 yr old was still
'doing school' this past year, but both of them are
just going through the motions, wanting to get it
over with. I think that somehow I just gave up.
Once I wasn't really able to be involved with their
day-to-day instruction, I didn't know what to do
with myself. I still tried, the past few years, to
work with them, but they didn't want me to, and it
left me without much purpose.

I honestly feel like I have no real reason to get up
in the morning. Sure, I do laundry and occasionally
cook a meal, but I'm not sure what to do with my
days. It's so weird. I know that I need to find
something else to focus on, but haven't been able to
find it yet. It doesn't help that I'm sort of a
stranger in this town and don't know anyone. Where
do I begin? I don't want to go get a job, but what
else is there? No place I know of in our little
town to pitch in and volunteer. And I'm not very

Like I said, I don't know if you are still notified
about this thread, but if you are, you're welcome to
write me through my blog. I haven't written there
for awhile, but I do check it occasionally. I think
we need a support group!
