The Kids Are Gone! Now What?

December 19, 2019

  1. Think of the opportunities.  The days of raising the kids has ended (for the most part) and you have more time.
  2. Is the house too big? All those extra rooms may not be necessary now. Downsizing may be an option.
  3. Is it time to remodel or update the house.  This can be fun and you could find new uses for those extra rooms.
  4. Starting a new hobby? Try to remember what you enjoyed before raising kids became your life. It’s your time.
  5. Vacations? Fun vacations with the kids, as adults, could be a great way to spend more time together.
  6. Vacations? Fun vacations without the kids!!
  7. Take it one day at a time.  We did our job and they are doing what we raised them to do.  The loss we feel does get better.
