besides throw a party . My youngest kids are 15 and 13 and not high maintenance (yet--I hope my daughter stays pretty easy, but ya never know). I'm kind of having an identity crisis. Not sure what to do with myself. I'd love to do pet rescue, but I have too many pets and not enough room so that's out. Hub is still working so we can't travel. Any ideas? What do YOU plan on doing? Will you be sad? I think I'll miss being a mom if these two kids stay easy. However, easy kids don't need minute-by-minute monitoring either so there is less to do. I already feel like an empty nester.
