It’s A New Year And I’m Feeling Eh2

happy new year

I made this with my Type Text app. I realize it’s off center.

So…here we are! I’m having a hard time adjusting to being back or whatever it is. We were in snowy gorgeousness for a week upstate, and now it’s just cold and dirty here. But I’m trying to be bright and positive, positive, positive (This is the scene in Knocked Up where Leslie Mann is trying to cheer up Katherine Heigl and she’s had a lot of Red Bull but I can’t find that scene so here is another fave).

Anyone have any resolutions about moving? Or staying? Or something else good?

    Oh the woes of ‘Should I stay or should I go!’ Well here I am, as one who “went,” to tell you that the grass may be greener on the other side, but the adjustment and change is like a slap in the face. It’s hard. Leaving New York is HARD. Period. I’m going through withdrawal at the moment. I miss the dirt. The grime. The disinterested people. The access. The lack of access. i miss it all!

    That said, change is good. (Sigh.) I know this is a transition period for us as we get used to NC living. Already there have been so many exciting positives, too: like awesomely mild winter weather (it’s 59 degrees today!), ridiculously fun, modern kids parks and playgrounds, so much to do as a family, etc… It’s happening. I’m just trying to embrace it all!

    Keep your chin up. NY is fabulous. But yes, “beyond” is pretty interesting too. Maybe time for a road trip? ; )

      That’s what I’ve heard. It’s all hard! I think we tend to blame the usual suspects when we’re down, at least I do. In my 20s it was because I was single, in my 30s it was because I didn’t have the career I wanted and now it’s often because we don’t have our roots firmly in the ground. Wait, did I just say all that?

      I know it’s a grass is greener deal. I’ll try to enjoy the things we DO have here that are great – like friends. And wine. And wine with friends. But yes, it’s the little surprises that make leaving so much fun.

      A road trip, at least! If we come your way I’ll let you know. In the meantime, keep us posted!
