Many bloggers only blog about the awesome parts of life, and readers get an edited and inaccurate view. I am guilty of this, not because I want to seem perfect, but more because I want my blog to be a positive space. An optimist at heart, I don't want to wallow in the negative aspects of my life. However, it's not healthy to pretend like unpleasant crap doesn't happen. That's why I told you guys I was sad about the move and leaving my friends and life. Life always seems to be a balancing act between good and bad, and I like to see the good stuff as making the bad stuff worth it. That's what allows me to be happy.
But lest you think that things around here are too good to be true, here's a counterbalance to my last post in which I let you in on a few sucky but not unbearable things:
feeling lonely and a little lost :: bickering with my husband because we are stressed, tired/achy, and sick of moving :: terrified kitties hissing at each other and hiding in every conceivable place, including behind the toilet :: no furniture to sit on for days :: having bad dreams about missing my friends
