The Move

It's already May?  We've been in Twin Falls for over a month now and I think I'm ready to talk about "the move." Well maybe not, but here it goes anyway.  Moving is hard! The few weeks before we left, I have never felt so stressed out (oh, except for when we moved the ten other times).  No seriously, I came down with a UTI, broke out in hives and was a big ball of anxiety. But through all of that, I reaped some serious blessings in the form of the most wonderful friends a gal could ask for.  Playdates were had, meals were given and more selfless service was given through house cleaning and box packing.  The day we moved looked something like this.. (okay, not matching cars, but you get the idea)

Our farewell party looked something like this... (again, you get it)

 I was so overwhelmed with how many people showed up to see us off and then to help us, I really couldn't believe we were leaving this place so full of kindness and love for a place we hardly knew at all. But, alas, the inevitable arrived and we waved goodbye with tear filled eyes and nervous hearts for what lay ahead.

Now, I could go on and on about how I am not feeling the love here and how I constantly beg (just myself in my own mind) to go back to how things were, but I won't because it won't help.  Instead, I'm deciding here and now to make the best of this situation and try to find happiness here...it's not Twin Falls, it's me.  There are plenty of good people in the world and plenty for me to do to make a difference.  Vice President of PTO- yes please! Say hello instead of waiting for someone to come to me- absolutely! Live well! It's my new motto, you can take it to mean whatever you want, but for me it means that whatever I'm doing, I'm going to try my darndest to do it well, to be happy. It doesn't mean unrealistic expectations or never allowing myself a bad moment (or day), it just means to try my darndest.   However, in the spirit of keeping it real I'll admit that in my mind I am giving this a year, then I shall reevaluate- just sayin. :)

Live Well!
