    Didn't think I would have a hard time with my daughter moving out. She tried earlier this summer, only took her clothes but it was still very hard on me.

    NOW....In Sept. she got married at the courthouse, which was a very big shock. We are just hoping for the best and helping them anyway we can. I just lend my ear when she needs to vent and keep my mouth shut.

    They just got an apartment and are moving out today. Now that all her stuff is gone from her room, I don't know what to do....cry or be excited. She is after all starting her new Chapter in life but it's gonna be a hard one.

    Thank you for letting me vent and get this off my chest.

    These transitions can be painful. I think quilting helps me to keep calm.

    You will be fine...its hard for the first few months...I found once I cleaned out the boys rooms it helped alot! One is now a guest room for when they visit. They like it too...it feels like a visit instead of their old rooms...the other room we changed into an office/music room for my husband. I wish I had sewn back then. Instead of buying a guest bed I would have bought a sewing table.

    It's going to take time. I first thought when my daughter left to college she was going to move back home. But, she joined Americorp and moved to Portland, Oregon. I was emotional. She is my only child. But, after she left, I did cry, but I felt excited too. I felt guilty that I was getting excited at first, but then I figured, hey I have to keep on living too. I wish her well, I send her my love all the time, and when we can we visit each other. So, take your time and feel your emotions, then get in gear and do what you like to do best - God bless!

    It is hard to loose the kids. Especially when you are worried about their choices. Continueto be supportive and then if things get bad for her, she will know that she can come home to Mom.

    Wish her well and move your sewing into her room! That way you have a new sewing room and you can be close to her also!
