Unhappy Moving...

Hi, everyone! ...this might be my last day on for awhile... MIGHT! ...we might be moving this weekend up to South Dakota, my dad got a job up there. I have to turn in my school laptop today. If I am moving, please don't remove me as a member of MOM, I'll come on whenever I can, but I don't know how often I will be on. It depends on what school my dad decides to put us in...

Don't worry Katanna, your membership will be preserved! The worst I do is remove someone to an Inactive group if they haven't been on in months and months.

Good luck with the move and settling in to a new home and school. That's not always fun as a kid...or as an adult either for that matter.

Thanks!

Yeah, it's not that fun...we've moved around alot since my dad was in the army. It's a lot harder when moving in the middle of the year, i've only had to do it once before...but that was in 4th grade...

My dad doesn't really want us to move either. Let's hope that my dad changes his mind about moving...

Katanna...Dad's have to do things for their families that they don't want to do, but they do it because its best for everyone in his family. I hope that your new school is even better than this last one...and that your family settles in wonderfully well...see you when you get back on.

Thanks for letting us know what's happening. Many years ago I was a "Navy brat" and I still remember how hard it is to change schools in the middle of the year. I remember a move in 8th grade in November particuarly. I know it's hard now but try to keep positive thoughts about it all. Think of it as an adventure. When you're older you'll treasure the experiences of different places and different people. And find the local library as soon as you can so you can let us all know how you are doing!

Good luck with the move. I've moved once during a school year and it wasn't fun, but I adjusted quickly. I'm sure you'll do the same.

Life sucks when you have to move, especially halfway through the school year. Let me see: for myself - 3 primary schools and 1 high school, both brothers went through 4 primary schools and 2 high schools and youngest sister - 2 primary schools and 2 high schools. Hmm, definitely know the feeling of having to go through new friends, teachers etc. GOOD LUCK WITH IT THOUGH! I think you'll come on top of it all and get through without having too many problems with it. If you do, come back to MoM and tell us all so we can help you through it.

...well...that is...what I mean is... *sigh* ...I dunno...I'm happy that we aren't moving, but I'm upset because we went through all of that stress and we had to pack up some stuff and fix up the horse trailer...we went through a whole bunch of stuff, and we aren't even going to move now...

We can't move because it's on an indian reservation and there aren't very many houses available, and we kept on calling this one guy that was selling a place, but he never called us back. I think my dad is going to turn down the job...I guess that I probably would if I were him...the last person that had the job is dead, and the tribal council won't tell him why.

Sorta good news then. Sux you got stressed out like that and how things went for your father about the job, but good that you are at least spared the stress of Moving Day.

Hope it all works out for you and your family.
