Hi there, I just found this forum and the post from Middle Georgia. I too, am from GA (ain't it sweet?), and except for a few years in California and Texas have lived here all my life. So I truly am GRITS - Girl Raised In The South!
And, like the previous poster, we are new semi-empty nesters. My two youngest sons are now in college, but close enough to come home every weekend. The empty nester thing was pretty hard on me at first - a lot of tears, but I'm finally getting use to it. And am beginning to appreciate the freedom.
I am glad to be here and hope to make some friends.
