Staying Positive

14 Apr

I am aching to go home to Jana Rd.

I miss my friends.  I miss my kitchen.  I miss my insomniac neighbor whose living room light was my nightlight.  I miss my grocery store.  I miss having errands take 20 minutes because you almost never wait at stop lights.  I miss people saying ‘hi’ to me at the store, school, church, as I drive…

Easter was hard for me.  We tried a church & we’ll not go back.  The only person who talked to us was the Pastor & even he wasn’t all that friendly.  It’s Easter for crying out loud!  There’s tons of visitors – a great time to make some connections with people who possibly don’t have a church home but this church must have enough members so they don’t bother to find new ones.  The clincher was at the end of service, they ushered everyone out.  I hate that.  It is such a waste of time.  I suppose if you know people there, it’s a good chance to visit with your neighbor (& there was plenty of that going on during church) but if you’re a visitor, it feels like an eternity.

Enough whine, which by the way, I found a drinkable wine for people who don’t like wine.  Me for instance.  Manischewitz Premium White Concord goes down really easily, especially with this stuff.

Here’s a list of positive things about the move.

  1. Walking E~ to & from school.  I love this!  We get 2 miles of walking in without really even trying.
  2. My bedroom is great, it just needs some room darkening shades.  I have a walk-in closet & my own bathroom with my own sink.
  3. My dishwasher is super quiet.
  4. I love the double oven
  5. Target is the closest place to shop.  I have no idea where the Wal-Mart is even located!

I still want to go home though…

    Hey, sweetie, try to stay positive and call me whenever you need me. You know I’m here for you. Just try to look at all the bright sides … if you get down, just remember happy hour at Sonic EVERY DAY! You can treat yourself to a small limeade for only 75 cents! Yum! I hope you know that every time I come and visit, you and I (and possibly the kids) will have to go there at least once between 2 and 4 p.m. during the visit. 🙂 I love you. And remember, God has a plan for all of us … and He is always with you.
