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?
