Budget rental trucks have all kinds of goofy “moving tip”s …. this one is just stupid. Well, most of them are pretty stupid. I guess if you are using a rental truck you probably aren’t going very far. Like from Denver to California? Maybe you are just moving to a new home across town and you get to keep all your besties. You know, the friends who know you in your skinny jeans, your fat jeans, your pregnant jeans…. and let’s not forget your drunk jeans. I miss those friends….
I’ve made lots of friends since we moved. It’s only been a month and a half and I’m settling in nicely. In fact, I don’t hate it here. How could I? The weather is incredible and the people are so outrageously nice.
There is a “BUT” here, I promise….
BUT… it’s impossible to replace the friend you called in the middle of the night on your way to the ER when your kid was on death’s door. You don’t find the group of girlfriends you’ll share theater tickets with for 15 years over night and you don’t find the people who just “get” you and love you no matter how neurotic you are. It’s not that easy to find that person who “gets” you….
I cried for a week when I first got here. Now I just cry when I blog about it so I should probably just stop blogging about it because the reality is that I really like it here. My kids have adjusted well and, while I’m sure they feel the same about their friends as I do, they have made new friends and are all doing really well in school. I did my homework and their schools and teachers are excellent. My biggest concerns have all been put to rest and life is good.
They say it takes a year to feel “at home” but I wonder how long it’ll take before I stop wishing I could go plop down on my BFFs couch and just “chill”?
