Spaced Out

Have you ever totally spaced out?

I kind of feel like that right now. It's pretty sad, actually! Today is my day off, and we got a lot accomplished today. Got and packed a few boxes, faxed some things to our realtor in Omaha, "strongly encouraged" our realtor in Ponca City, and went for a walk. But I feel like I should have a little more energy! Maybe I am still recovering from our FLOAT TRIP this weekend (more on that next post.) It seems like it takes longer and longer to recover after those types of activities, but I always have a blast!

It really stinks being "between jobs." On the one hand, you are looking forward to your next job and new house. On the other, you feel like you are letting people down that you are leaving. Your friends (people at church) start withdrawing from you...that's the worst feeling. The people you have been really close to...they know you are leaving and it hurts to keep talking to you when they know you are leaving! I know they still love me, it's just funny how humans act sometimes!

Can't wait to move on and quit being spaced out!

It does hurt when we have to part with friends, but it's wonderful to stay in contact over the years. We may make many moves in our lives, but we can still keep our friends and have new friends, too.

We've moved many times and I know EXACTLY what you're talking about! I hope you don't feel that way about us -- we still have an open invitation for dinner at our house -- homemade lasagna! You will be missed and we hope and pray to keep in touch for many years to come.

Grandpa and I have moved several times, and it is hard. You never forget the people you have met along the way. Your friends will always be your friends, maybe it is just a Christmas card or a phone call,and nothing takes away the wonderful things you remember about them. Each place will have a special meaning in your heart, that will always remain with you.
Love you all, Nana

I haven't moved that often, but what I do know is that you have the best intentions to keep in touch with those you became close with. However we arrive at our new Christian community and make new friends and begin to fill those voids. Then it seems as though you don't have the time or passion for keeping in touch with the friends you left behind. The internet has made this an easier prospect but you can only be stretched so thin. Karen and I will pray you, Tracy and Fisherman.
