Quill Posted July 6, 2012 Share Posted July 6, 2012 This seems to hit me all the time now. I just so often wish we could move to another state. A lot of that time, the state I want to move to is VA, which would not be drastically different, but plenty of times I think...WY or Alaska or CO. I don't know what it is with me. I just crave something different soooo much! I read about that mom with the six kids piled up on the bicycle and it makes me think, "See? Doing something interesting. Can't bike a pile of kids around here. I'd be a speed bump if I even tried to bike my own self any further than the end of my driveway!" When I was in Alaska, I kept thinking, "I am soooo happy here. This is natural and beautiful and bold and different." When I was in CO, similar, plus I had my brother and his incredibly dear wife and in-laws, sweetening the deal and making me want to live there. It's nothing wrong with our house or our actual location; in fact, I love my individual lot back in the woods, it's lovely. We have great friends and family and awesome parks and a piano teacher and a good pediatrician and all those great things. It's not that I don't like being *here*. It's just that I'm yearning for something to be different. I find myself envying people who pulled up and built an orphanage in Mexico or moved to Malaysia. ;) I'm revving up to re-paint the heck out of my house, in part because I'm hoping it will satisfy a little of that "want something different" urge that is buggin' me all the time. :glare: Is something terribly wrong with me? Is it a 40+ thing rearing its ugly head again? In practical terms, it is not feasible for us to move soon or very far; overdeveloped sense of responsibility and all. :tongue_smilie: But I find myself calculating the point at which it will be more feasible than it is now (2017, but who's counting?). Can you relate? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
