I Am Tired Of Waiting...

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

58 more days until me, my DH and our 2 dogs leave Illinois to move back home to live with my Mom. We're more than half-way packed and I am getting antsy to leave. If I didn't have any work ethic I would just up and leave my part-time job and go in a few days. But, I guess my parents did something right when they raised me and I take other people's feelings into consideration. It would be different if I could get others to cover my time slots, but all the other pages are in school.

We do get a lot more privacy and space while living in the apt. But waiting is not my forte or my husbands hahaha! That's why in 2005 when my DH asked if I wanted to move to South Carolina, we were gone in 2 weeks. All packed up with an apt. waiting for us. I love doing most things spur of the moment.

Right now the waiting is driving me crazy because one day I will be so happy that I'm moving back home and can see my family whenever I want. Then the next day I will be miserable because I can see my family whenever I want emoticon

I am moving in with my Mom and my very open mind. She is 80 years old, but very busy and has her way of doing everything. I am a very outgoing personality shall we say and like things done my way. I will have to let go of a lot of things once I move there and I know it will revert me back to some of my childhood problems. One which was eating for any reason possible when I was bored, happy, aggravated or my Mom said I was too fat or too skinny. I'm hoping some of those issues will be resolved quickly. I was quite shy as a child and didn't let my feelings known. Now if I am troubled by something I will let her know right away in the kindest way possible.

We will also be hoping that my DH can start working and we can get on our feet again. I will have a hard time getting a job at first, because I can't leave the dogs until they are comfortable and I know they won't ruin her stuff.

So, as you can all see, I have a lot on my mind. Probably the reason I haven't gotten into Sparks as much lately. I know the computer will once again be my retreat when I move. I will have a fun time showing it to my Mom and teaching her a few things she can do on it. And we will be taking walks together, maybe with the dogs, and be able to talk openly about what we need from each other.

Hope everyone is doing well and has a great week!

    Even with all the challenges, it's a great opportunity to make some wonderful new memories with your Mom. I'm happy for you both.

    I and my husband lived with my mom for about 6 months while her house deal was closing because I was gong to rent the house she was in. We all worked and I still vowed I would never live with her again.
    I hope it works out for you. If your mom is a good cook and baker like mine--don't gain too much weight eating all that old fashioned fattening food.

    Sounds like a big adjustment ahead for you. I know you'll make it work out and I really hope the job scene works out for you all. Enjoy your family and your new adventures.....as soon as you get to move!
