Change Is Hard
Well, we have been in Omaha several months now and dont get me wrong I do like it but I think I am homesick. I miss New York, I miss our family, I miss our friends, I miss Paula coming every Wednesday come rain or shine, I miss Brittany coming on Mondays, I miss Katie coming a few times a week, I miss going out to dinner with friends (however rare that was), I miss my house, I miss the mountains, I miss the places we used to love to go and eat at, I miss taking the kids to Explore, I miss taking them to Crandall Park, I miss my morning walks around town with them, I even miss NY DMV (we just had to over $700 just to register our vehicles). I guess I am just homesick. I think sometimes change is hard. Any change is hard, especially when you have certain expectations. Not that I am disappointed because I am not, thats not what I mean. I just didnt expect to pay that much just to register cars, I didnt expect the cost of living to be as high, I didnt expect Jeff to not be working yet, I didnt expect to have a landlord that literally said to me "I dont give a sh*t about your kids", I didnt expect that the kids would get so many colds when moving here, I didnt expect it to be so difficult to get the children on state insurance, etc. , etc., etc. But we are closer to family and I am so glad for that. And I am sure some of this is normal right? Its normal to feel a little blah in a new place right? We did just join a triplets group and I am excited about that. I am hoping to meet some people and get to know the Omaha ropes. Guess I am just having a blah kind of a day.
