My first time!!

Ok so get your head out of the gutter. (you know who you are) It's not about 'that' first time, although maybe someday it will be.

This is the 'first time' blogging on here for me.

I am not sure what I am doing on here. I feel like I want to blog but then I think, "who the hell is going to want to read my thoughts?" Know what I mean? I am starting all over with a new life so what do I write about? My old life or my new one??

My family has moved away from the place I called home and left everyone behind. Now, I have moved soooo many times in my life so this should not be a problem for me, right? Well this time it is. I really considered for the first time in my life that place home. I got involved with the community, schools and made some fantastic friends. You can go to the grocery store and most likely see someone you know and knows you back. Of course this was a downfall when I would go with bedhead, bags under the eyes and a stain on the shirt. Then you would always see someone no matter the time of day. I am sure you all can relate. Now I am in a city of 100,000 and I walk through the grocery store and think, "will I ever see a familiar face?" I have often jokingly called myself a gypsy with all the times I have moved and started over. Each time gets better but for now I am still back there in the grocery store that I recognize and recognizes me stained shirt and all.

I really enjoyed reading this blog, I know now, I'm not alone. I have been away from the placed I called home for 12 years and still feels like yesterday when i made that bold move. As soon as I moved away I had just started a family, everything was new... new husband, new kids, new house well... new to me!, new life, new town. I miss my home town but now if I had to move away from here I would lose it! I think you are doing the right thing by getting involve and making friends all over!!! I wish you the best! and God bless!!!
