Well, I'm finally back online. To be honest we got connected last week, but I've been too tired to come read, or write, until today.
At the moment I still feel strangely disconnected. Not to the internet - to myself. Moving house was way more tiring and draining this time than the last two times. I honestly don't think any of us can cope with doing this moving constantly and yet we have no choice. The house we are in is minimum 6 months to maybe 30 months rental. We cannot start thinking of it as "home", because it isn't. Plus we are all missing the town we lived in for the past five years. Missing it way more than any of us expected.
So it's not a particularly happy bunch of people here and the choices on what to do about that are rather limited. We either move again to another rental after six months or we stay put for as long as possible.
If we move again it means more expense (everything from removal vans to changing the phone costs money), more stress and more exhaustion (none of us are that healthy at the moment so packing and shifting was a nightmare).
If we stay it's to live in a nice house that feels not at all like a home in an area that isn't "home".
At the moment we've unpacked the necessities and left the rest packed. I haven't even unpacked my clothes yet. I just couldn't be bothered. When we first moved in we all tried to look on the bright side, see the positives, but at the moment I feel too worn out to care if I come across as negative or not.
As for blogging... I'm not sure where I'm going with that either. I don't want to lose connections to all the friends I have here, but I really don't feel any energy for writing or replying much at the moment. I'm not sure what I want to write either, but then this blog started as my own personal journey so I suppose this is just part of that journey.
I hope everyone is keeping well and I'll try to get around to everyone's blogs to say hello.
