Olive Background

Wednesday, August 13, 2008


So I haven't posted lately because I am cranky.

I miss my friends.

I miss my family.

I miss Old Navy for back to school shopping.

I am sick of renovating.

I am sick of not having a basement to exile the kids to.

I am sick of spending money.

I am tired of uncertainty.

I am tired of "Mom" sounding like vulgar language.

I am tired.

Quite pooped, frankly.

Can I just say that we all miss you too!

Hang in there! I know it's hard moving, there's that "honeymoon" period and then you realize you're really here and you have no friends, etc. It sucks! Does school start soon there? That can help since you can meet other parents there, volunteer in their classes, etc. My other suggestion is to find a church if you haven't already, that's how we have made most of the friends we have now. Good luck!

Well my beautiful daughter-in-law. I wish I were there to give you a break. So being so far away, and not being able to kick you and Sean out your door for a nice dinner or a movie, I look for the perfect words that will give you encouragement. "This too will pass". In just a few weeks all the kids will be
off to school and you will have some quiet moments to reflect, refill and recouperate. Then things won't seem so bad. Call me if you would like to vent, or find some time when the kids are all gone to bed to have a moment to yourself. I pray for you all every day and love you all very much. G-Ma Zeck

Deb, I hope you don't mind me snooping but I found your link on Shelli's blog and had a look. You can look at my blog if you like as well. I am sad that you are sad but hey we have all felt that. My list could go on as well, like the fact that there are 10 thousand wasps in my wall and they keep coming in my house no matter how much Brent sprays them. Well, your all healthy and safe, that is a good thing.
