Things I am hearing about my upcoming move:
-I hear you are moving to Virginia...that is great news! Why is this great news? Because I will be closer to Toledo? What difference does it make, you didn't come to visit me here what makes me think you will visit me there?
- Everything will work out, you will see. Hmmm, how so? You are one of those annoying "glass half full" people aren't you? Walk a mile in my shoes...then we'll talk.
-You will learn to love VA just as you have come to love LA. Congratulations! You have completely missed the point.
- Moving is part of Chad's job. Really, that hadn't occured to me before now!
Of course I am upset that I am moving, however that is not the issue. This issue is that I will have not one but two houses for sale and I will not be able to afford a third house (or my new car) until one or both other homes are sold. We have six months to do this. Most likely what will happen is my husband will have to move to Virginia (15+ hours away) by himself and live on base until we sell the houses. So that leaves me here in LA, with three kids, alone. I am not sure if I will be able to keep my job. I won't be able to keep the hours I currently work if I am alone. We definitely cannot afford that. Either way I am screwed. Do you see my point?
I don't handle stress well. I am literally on the verge of a nervous breakdown...throw Christmas into the mix and well you have a cocktail for disaster. Depressed doesn't even begin to cover it. So forgive me if I won't "get over it".
(Thank you for letting me vent.)
