“Looking for suggestions and or advice for myself as an empty nest mom, again…
Three kids, all grown. One lives one hour away and feels that it is just way too far to come and visit.
One currently moved in two months ago to go back to school. Has the whole basement, bedroom and bathroom to herself. Just yesterday found out that she is moving back out to live in an RV and blames her decision on me. Apparently asking her to keep her three dogs quiet at night and not slamming doors is too much to ask.
I spent one year, lots of money and time getting the basement ready. Even buying large kennels for the three dogs. You know… wanted her to be comfortable and happy.
Having the blame put on me is what hurts the most. Heartbreaking. Tears have been on and off for several days now. I have tried to fill the void with friends, horses, chickens and my dog but nothing is even coming close to healing my broken heart. What can I do now? I can’t seem to pull myself together.” -Anonymous
