    Currently feeling muted... muted is the word. I feel as if what I need to do for myself and what I need to do for my kids is at odds.It makes sense. I have been slowly adjusting to being an empty nester. But, I am not, in fact, an empty nester. My sole teen remaining under my wing wants me home. It will be 4 weekends in a row that the man and I have been out of town separately, putting pressure on the week. Feeling defeated.

    Thank you, Batya. My exH skipped his weekend without notice and teen has been choosing to stay with me in some other instances, and feeling a bit insecure in her skin. Feels like there isn't enough of me to go around, the part that feeds her nixes the part that feeds me.

    And of course being her mom feeds me more than anything... balance, though.

    I understand - I am sorry your ex-h is behaving this way!

    New guy is proving himself bf material. "You're worth waiting for" and no pressure. Also had good conversations with my high schooler, helping her launch a little more comfortably.

    Feeling better.

    He may be a keeper says Friend 1.

    Move into his house when you're an empty nester, say Friends 2 and 3, who don't know and couldn't be more different from Friend 1.

    I have just spent a week 24/7 with him in his house, from the first night he owned it till now. Quarantined. Sick. Work, eat, play in the same small one floor house. A week.

    And enjoyed it.

    Along with Batya I'm saying: hope you're not sick sick.

    Otherwise? Sounds like a lovely time during a very strange time. A close friend is in a similar place: has been holed up with someone he'd recently started seeing for the past week. And, best I can tell, enjoying it.

    Thanks for the well wishes.

    Kids are convinced I had IT but I am not so sure. Either way, has been a nice time, all things considered.

    Hope everyone is OK!
