I do not want to move...VENT **UPDATE**

This will be my 5th move in 5 years. I am so tired of moving. DH doesn't get it, he's like change is inevitable, etc. Or he says you are not doing the physical work, you can use the moving days to relax. But those are not the issues, I am comfortable. For the first time in a years I feel settled and comfortable in a home of my own. I love the area, my sick mom is a few doors away, I like my congregation and am making some friends, entertainment and shopping is good, we have space, we painted, I had plans for the half bath. Then we get notice end of November that rent is increasing more than $200 with renewal and with the car note its not doable.

The place we are moving to we are buying, its a good price but its in my old neighborhood, my memories there are not tragic or anything, some bad, some good but I just liked being somewhere new. To me going back there feels like regression, idk. I'm usually pretty accepting of change but this one is so hard for me and as time comes closer it gets worse. We move Tuesday.

So we finally moved, it'll be two weeks tomorrow. I love the renovations they did, especially the kitchen lol. We are slowly personalizing it. Its nice to be close to some old friends again. I think I'm adjusting well, focusing on the positives :)

 try to make your new home as comfortable and cozy as you can. find a space just for you and decorate it with things that inspire you.

I wouldn't want to move either. An increase of $200 is a LOT of money. Too bad you can't afford it. The other ladies are probably right.

Me again. You will settle in, etc. moving is hard for me. I have lived in the same neighborhood for over 30 years! Sorry you have to go through this over and over. Just when you get your 'nest' the way you like it, with your mom and friends around you, it's time to uproot and do it all over again :(hugs

Hope your moving day goes well on Tuesday.  Sorry that you have to leave a home you are enjoying.  May you find ways to make this home that will be yours for a while as cozy as the one you are in now.   Maybe ther will be new things about the neighborhood that you didnt' discover the first time,

Moving is hard.  May you find some unexpected joys in your new home. Shannon
