Non financial brain dump...

March 8th, 2017 at 05:17 am

I am incredibly anxious this week. It's not like I haven't been aware for many months I am going through nearly every major life change this year. However, with the trip to MI This week, it really is hitting me hard.

I don't want any regrets. I know when I moved here, it wasn't the best decision. Overall, it worked out but in retrospect it wasn't a great decision.

I KNOW moving to MI is good for us. For one, after research my moving there will get my son in-state tuition this year. This is going to save thousands! I also know it is never a bad thing to be near friends and family.

Part of my anxiety is driving in March. The weather can be a factor. Luckily, I don't see any major storms on the horizon. Please pray and/or keep us in your thoughts the weather is decent for us on the trip there and back.

When I get to MI, I am going out with my cousin house/apt hunting to see if us sharing a place is viable. That may not work because of where she needs to live. It is further from Lansing than I prefer. I am also going to Lansing for a full day to look at places there.

In the end, it isn't like I would ever be homeless if I don't find something before the move. I can put my stuff in storage and stay with my parents for a month or two. However, I would have much more peace of mind if I have a place of my own to move to on June 1st.

On the marriage front, DH is freaking out that he will be homeless. However, he has made no effort or progress. It seems he expects me to take him in if nothing falls in his lap. I can't do it anymore.

    Will keep you in prayer Laura. I wonder if the anxiety has more to do with your husband not getting his own place? Worry over what he will try to do to keep staying with you. I understand the trip anxiety, too! It's all a big deal, hang in there!

    Laura, I hear you about the drive. Maybe give yourself permission to stay over in a motel when you otherwise might not, if the weather/ driving goes downhill.

    So sorry you are so anxious. Change is hard, even when it is for the betterment. Hang in there!

    I totally understand how hard change can be, even for good! I hope that the anxiety dissipates once you actually take the trip up there and find a place, often taking action gives you a sense of control that can be reassuring.

    Coming from the freezing north I fully understand your anxiety. Before departure it's a good idea to have a service station check fluid levels and belts. The best thing you can do is travel with a home made, 'emergency kit.' A few large plastic bags to put over your clothes to hold in warmth, a tin can with a few tea light candles [or a candle jar] & lighter provides sufficient heat if you feel conditions warrant pulling off the road, on to the shoulder. We always take a thermo of tea and box of breakfast bars on any winter trip, check the tire on every fill up and buy more gas as the fuel gauge turns to 1/4 tank.

    You'll n ever need those items but having them in the car boosts your confidence for the trip.
