They're leaving home and it's just the two of us again

How quickly it comes around. This month, myself and himself find ourselves right back where we started when we got married 26 years ago. Our son has moved into a rented apartment and our 23-year-old daughter is heading to the US. It is just the two of us now.
I am not a clingy mother and I never dreaded the day when my two 'chicks' would fly the coop to lead their own lives. I have a busy work life and am not at home all day waiting on them hand and foot.
But Mammy 'bird' is admittedly feeling a little lonely. Like the birth of your first child, you know the day will come but you aren't sure how to handle it when it arrives.
