I became an empty Nester today!

We had 3 kids move out into their own places last month and our baby moved into her own apartment today . I get to run our farm alone now as DH is working full time driving the OATS bus. I thought DH was crazy to retire us to a 99 acre farm. But I'm glad he did! I never dreamed at age 58 I could grab a 50 lb bag of feed and run a mile with it but I do so all the time. Folks think I'm 40 at most and I can well imagine what shape I'd be in if we had retired to a little place and sat around all the time!
Got us down to 2 horses today. Turning another 40 acres over to row crops. With our garden project providing organic lettuces to restaurants and the row crops I'm hoping to get a good amount put on the principal of the house. We refied this year so if we do nothing it will be paid off in 10 years. We are hoping to cut it in half and maybe even better.
Empty nesting and loving it!
