Update on moving

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive April 2006: Update on moving
By Conni on Sunday, April 23, 2006 - 03:12 pm:

I have mentioned on here that we might be moving this summer due to dh's job. They have him on a list of people to move for 18mos-2yrs and help with a project. Well, they have continued to pretty much treat all of the families/employees involved kind of cruddy. Leaving us in the dark for months, basically. Changing the plan repeatedly, etc... At first, it was June time frame, then July, Aug, Sept, and last week we heard NOVEMBER. ;) I told dh he might just be going alone. Because I find the whole thing ridiculous. I wont be moving my kids in Novemeber- so that means for the kids and I it would be January time frame. Considering just staying here and not moving with dh, to be honest with you.

Obviously, I am enrolling my kids in school here in the Fall and as of last week *I* am living like we are NOT moving. I am actually relieved for the first time in months. :)

I so know how you have been feeling! It is so exhausting to plan for the unkown..LOL :)

How does DH feel about you guys staying behind?

Glad to know you have relief, though!

Well, *if* the plan stays the same and they do move him in November, he would have to leave us behind until Christmas break anyway. (but its unlikely the plan will stay the same, I'm guessing) I am not sure if he thinks I am serious about staying behind or not. He said he didnt think that sounded like a good idea. (for him to live there 2yrs and us live here) I have a feeling they wont need him there for the full length of the project. They did come back and say they may have people there 6mos-2yrs... ROFL I assume the people who get assigned the 6 mo job- would really just be traveling back and forth between here and there, and not actually moving. kwim? I have it in my head now, that maybe they will do this with dh. Who knows! All I know is my big butt is stayin' put. I'll be happy to go visit him. :) After reading thru all the material on this, we figured out it's smarter to *keep* our house so that we will have a home to come back too. So we had changed our mind about selling our house. Which makes it even easier for me to just stay here.

My middle schooler *really* doesnt want to go anymore. He was excited about it at first. But then it drug on and like me, he has had too much time to think about it. Blake will have already started his school here and my jr high ds was never interested in moving- he was planning to stay here with my ex...

I will probably be posting again in another 6 mos saying we (kids and I) have to move because dh flipped out about leaving us here or something... *rolling eyes*

I have never seen such an unorganized process!!!

Weren't you planning to move? It is exhausting to not know what you are doing for sure!! Because if you are moving you do so many things different than if you are staying. Ya know? :) lol

{{{hugs}}} I think the waiting and not knowing is so much worse then the actual moving. I know I am much calmer now that I know where we are going, even though it isn't my 1st choice of places.

I think just acting like you are staying is the best thing for your sanity. You can always worry and stress if and when it happens.
