Empty nester. That's the label people use to describe my home life. I struggle with this concept. I remember empty nesters. They were close to retirement, in their 50's, married and financially well off. I'm none of those things.

I just made a career change. My mother lives with me and she is in school full-time getting her PhD. I'm periennially single. And, in debt from getting the kids through school.

I have always planned to recreate myself and my life when the kids were gone. But quite honestly, I thought my circumstances would be different. Nothing is on schedule or even close to my long term plan.

So, now what?

I need a new plan.
