Working my way through being an empty nester

Guest post written by Maria Banks

I was always thinking about how I was going to deal with my kids going off to college. It was always something in the back of my head at each one of their birthdays. But now the time's come to actually handle it. I have three kids and the oldest one is starting college classes in just a few days. I think that my two younger kids are going to miss my son, but not quite as much as me.

As I was looking online to find some tips on how to deal and help my other two kids deal with their older brother not being around, I came across the website After I looked through it a little bit, I decided to change over our home internet service to one of the plans on there.
It helped going with him to first year orientation, so at least I have a better sense of where he's going to be. I was pretty impressed by the campus and his dorm, so I think that he's going to be OK.
