I think that's everyone!

Well, I believe I have added everyone from class on my reader's list. If any of you notice I missed someone, please let me know.

I was thinking, I bet we could make a discussion group for single, married, dating, with children, employed, unemployed, and then by what career we are pursuing.

What do you think? Is it too much?

Anyhow, I am getting bored with facebook! I only got on facebook last year because my best gal pal got off myspace where I was on, and created a profile on facebook. She kept telling me how much better facebook is.

Myspace became to overwhelming anyhow...

Facebook was better a year ago, now it's not the same with all the changes. I just like to read and see what everyone is doing since most my friends or all my close friends live in Texas where I am from. I love where I live, love the beauty and weather, but there is truly no place like home. I'll put up with the yucky scorching heat and humidity during Houston's summers, and the cold rainy winters along with the joint pain that comes with it to be with the rest of my family and friends again.

Don't get me wrong, moving to Peoria, Arizona or Phoenix has been a blessing. It has been a positive move for all of us. Try as I may to make friends here, it's just not the same. Although, maybe I'm just stubborn, and I think my friends in Texas are so much better. They weren't just friends though. They were there for me through good and bad, tears of pain and joy, many days of fun and laughter. We always said, "it's not where you're at, but who you're with." My closer circle of friends we called the "la familia" or the "famdamily."

I always had a shoulder to lean on, a friend to confide in, there was always an invitation for get-togethers on the weekends and even during the week. I already had my group of friends I would do things with my son and their children. I had a hook up for everything, eating spots, clubs, limos, wrecker, electrical, ac/heating, etc. As a matter of fact when I visited my parents last summer, their air condition went out. A friend of mine replaced a part, and only charged my parents for the cost of the part, which was $70. Yep, those are the kinds of friends I have.

So does anyone here have any advice for how to adjust to a new move or maybe when is it time to head back home?


  1. Hey! I know how rough it can be moving to a completely different state. When I was in middle school my family moved from Ohio to Missouri. It was a huge move and I missed all of my friends and family that we left behind. It was so hard for me not to be depressed but I did the best that I could. I would always write my friends and anticipate on their letter back. But in the meantime while living in Missouri I kept a positive attitude and went to events and went to hang out over some of the girls houses and it was fun I did make friends there and we still to this day continue to talk and it has been 8 or 9 years since I have seen them all because we did end up moving back to Ohio.

    So if I can give you the best advice, it would be try and make friends. Go out and mingle. Meet someone who has a child as well. Play dates are always fun =)

    Facebook is a great place to network and keep up with family and friends. That is what I use. I agree, it has changed ALOT especially with the new layout. I HATE IT!!

  2. Kristen, thanks for your response! I guess, I just need to keep mingling!
