Week Update: Thoughts on staying
No ma'am. I was supposed to be in Wooster Ohio, attending the wedding of my dear Bluffton friend, Stephanie. But stress, money and allergies got the best of me and I decided to not drive 28 hours in 3 days. I know I made the right decision but it still sucks, especially watching the wedding reception unfold last night via Instagram.
I love living by myself and am slowly starting to really enjoy my new rental house. But my budget is even tighter now, meaning I have to make those hard choices of not traveling and being where I want to be.
Kansas was never intended to be a long-term plan. But now that I've been here, plus or minus, 4 years the thought of leaving feels a little impossible. After all, I like my job (and at this point have no idea what else I would do), I love my boyfriend (who just started a new position as well), and feel fairly rooted here. Moving someplace different, especially some place where I know no one, is frightening.
But I am getting ahead of myself. After all, who knows what the future will bring. Hell, I didn't even know I would be moving (just down the street) a month ago. Stuff happens. The best I can do is try to be like my sister's old dog, Scooter, and just live in the moment. (Or I guess Scout, who is very moment based too. Well, expect sometimes she cries for her dinner way before it's time to eat. I know, a girl after my own heart).
Yes. I am glad I stayed home.
