Isn’t it ironic?

July 17, 2010


You know how I’m always whining about not having any girlfriends that live close? That I never get to go out and do anything with Bella? That I’m lonely and bored?
So now that we’re moving, I’ve made a really awesome girlfriend that meets up with me for lunch on Fridays. Ironic bonus? Our husbands like each other too.
Also, I take the car (new readers – we sold the other to save money) about twice a week to go visit my parents.
The farmers markets are here so I take Bella to those. One is within walking distance.
Our house won’t sell now that we need it to really bad. Oh, and showings have stopped. When Sam didn’t have the transfer approved yet it was showing twice a week and we were kinda freakin’ out.
So yeah. Life is weird.
In my heart I know moving is the right thing. Because when winter hits here again I will be stuck inside all day with no income. But since summer is here and things are so perfect and ideal, it just makes it that much harder to move. I think about it all the time. My little house. My family. An amazingly sweet friend.
I’m sorry, why are we moving again?
Oh, that’s right. Money. And jobs. And so Bella doesn’t have to go grow up in this town full of gossip, horrible schools, and small town politics. And deal with the kids of the people I grew up with.
Wait, nevermind. I still want to move.
Who knows? Maybe my parents and my friend Mandy will all move closer to us one day.
Until then (no pressure guys) I’ll just enjoy the time I get with them and the spectacular summer we have here.

*note to self – happy post next time. 🙂

    Love how you talked yourself out of moving then talked yourself right back into it, all in once sentence! Bravo! A woman after my own heart!

    I’m following you from Veronica’s group at Bloggy Mom’s.

    But what are all of your friends and family going to do when you decide to move closer to me?

    I know what you mean! All my girlfriends I met in college and none of us live close by. But now I made some great girlfriends who have kids and a couple of them are moving. It’s a bummer!
