Just cause...

Ever since we moved to New Orleans, I have fallen way behind on my blogging.  I use to look forward to doing it, and get excited to post.

 I really don't have an excuse...I just have never been good at change---with ANYTHING.  Too bad that is what life is all about.  When I changed to be a missionary, came home, when I moved, changed my status to being married, became a mom, became a mom of 2...

 I am not exactly sure why I take so long to adjust to knew roles and changes in my life...I actually like change, I think it is good for us, and necessary.  So why then, can't I ever just get into a new rhythm and flow.

I also believe that people get things out of life what they put into life.  Having said that, let me just say that I am still having a hard time adjusting to New Orleans.  I don't feel like I fit in anywhere, I feel ackward in every single way you could think of, socially, emotionally, financially...

 I just don't know.  Maybe that is really why I haven't  blogged at all ( doesn't explain my lack of picture taking for my second oldest)...I am hoping I can get out of my funk and back into a newer, better rhythm...

 HERE's to hoping....

Hey, why don't you start a play group? It sounds like you could really use what we all had when we got together weekly. (Heck, I could use it too.) If not then feel free to e-mail me and vent, whine, cheer, and otherwise talk my ear off. :) sunshineeyes at gmail dot com Hang in there!

Hey--I've felt the exact same way where I am. There's no groove. It all just feels weird/wrong. Truly frustrating--especially since where I lived before everything just clicked and was right. Praying you feel more "in the groove" soon!

Take your time! Although I guarantee that if you make the three hour drive to Pensacola and spend a day at that beautiful white sandy beach (a way to get out of a funk for sure) then you'll definitely have something to blog about!

I just found your blog (from Sherri's)...hope you don't mind me reading it? I love reading blogs!! We moved to Nebraska in August and I have had a hard time adjusting too...it usually doesn't take me long to like a place, but for some reason Nebraska just wasn't doing it for me. Are you in a military ward? We are. I thought it would be easier if we were, but sometimes I think we don't get noticed because SO many people are coming and going from the ward so it's a little difficult to connect and make friends. I have recently tried to find opportunities to serve others and have found that this has given me the most opportunities for making friends and feeling 'a part' of the area/ward. I think it helped to take a step back and try and new strategy to like the place...maybe that will work? Good luck!!
