Early onset of Empty Nest syndrome.

Hello readers.  I’m not sure if you caught my last post about being in a funk, but just by writing that post, admitting to it, embracing it, I feel better.  It was inhibiting more than my creativity for the past few weeks.

I’ve concluded that I’ve got early onset of empty nest syndrome.  One kid already in college and the other a junior in high school, who is driving her self and working, makes for a lonely mom. I’ve been busy for years with kid stuff and going to college and working I barely had free time, now I’ve got a ton of free time and I don’t know what to do with myself.

Anyways…  I’m wondering about you my dear reader.  Since there’s about 25 of you who follow my blog, plus the feed to my Facebook, Twitter, & Tumblr accounts I figured I’d get some good replies. So feel free to reply on whatever social media site you’re reading this on.

How often do you get in a funk & what gets you out of it?  Do you know what triggers it? Does being in a funk make it harder to blog? (if you blog) How does being in a funk disrupt your creativity?

I’m back to my mantra every morning… “Today is a good day.”

  1. I am on the couch after watching several episodes of 30 Rock thinking “i should really get moving” because I have stuff to do- make chicken wings, work on Shawn’s costume. It’s Saturday, right? Been in a funk for weeks now. But today, right now, I’m going to get up, and get out, and go get those things done. Thanks lady! 🙂

  2. Been there. Quietest my house was in 30 years — the day I dropped my last babe off at college. Quiet. The good news is that a new career awaited — as a writer, blogger, you have lots to look forward to!

    1. Thanks for reading.
      Yes I do have a lot to look forward to. I am half excited & half scared. 🙂 Wondering what direction to go in.
      Spent tonight baking with my daughter, it was a blast. Pumpkin whoopee pies. I will miss these moments.
