We are seeds looking for the perfect soil to grow and thrive !!!
We are moving again. This time it also a cross country move from New York to Texas. I have got only 2 weeks to pack our life here. So we won’t be seen here for next month or two.
It is just a pain to do all the packing and move and set our life every year. And we loose the friends we made. Now that Aarav has started school he will have to adjust to the new atmosphere ,teachers and friends. When you move you even have to find out perfect store for the things you need at the perfect prices.
Owww…. poor me. Now read this :
Since we are new in USA we wanted to explore the country before we settle down in one place. Our kids are still young so we don’t need to worry about proper schooling yet.Best of all my husband is in software industry and can find new project (not easily) in different parts of the country. So we decided to explore all the new places,make new friends and find out what’s best for us. Now we move almost every year.
Now most of you are jealous,thinking Wow….what a great way to travel !!! Well the thing is we didn’t decided to live this way (we are not the adventurous people) but this is something we have to except. So lately I have come out from the moving-is-a-big-pain from moving-is-awesome mood.
Last year I was really in the bad state of mind. But than I thought why ? I have a perfect healthy loving family. Some friends even from far away stick with me all the time and want to see me happy. And if not for moving we wouldn’t have seen places or meet new friends or discover new things we as a family enjoy most(instead of mowing lawns or cleaning a big house). If only I can see the brighter side of this than my kids won’t feel the negative effects.
So now I am one happy mommy, who is packing a whole house with two little monsters who are as happy as any kids to play with all the random stuffs (bags,tapes,hats,broken toys,pots and pans). All I am trying to teach them (and myself) is letting go of our favorite things (even the most favorite toys) shouldn’t be sad or painful. Cause there are more stuff waiting for us at the new destination.
Here are some moments from our days here in New York :
