As you know by now, I have been maladjusted to this "empty nesting" thing that was thrust upon me, even though it is within the scope of nature's plan. Since my last post I have polled any and all mothers who have lived through this process and find that I am not alone in my conflicted feelings, i.e. "This is cool, there is food in the refrigerator when I get home," but "I really miss my 'little' boy," etc. At first I was hurt because of the way it happened and, ultimately it was my decision, but the only one that could be made at the time. My son had agreed to honor the deal we made about living at home until he finished the first two years of college, but was not at all happy when he was physically at home (the frequency of which quickly dwindled). My dilemma? Did I make him stay at home and be miserable? Or let him out of the deal and basically boot him out the door and into the arms of the new family and life he had recently adopted.
