Crying my eyes out.....

Well, I just had one of the most depressing days ever. This morning Idaho Power told us they are sending us to the Upper Salmon dam in Hagerman and they want us to our new place sometime in the next 3 or 4 weeks.

Move.

Move quickly.

Move a family of 8 to a much, much smaller house with less privacy.

One with a postage-stamp kitchen and no garden spot or fruit trees.

Do it with a new baby.

Start all over in a new ward.

I'm so bummed I want to go to bed and pretend it's just a nightmare..

Maybe tomorrow I can think of all the reasons this move might be good for us. Right now I can't think of any.

I'm so sorry Sariah!!! Your home there at Shoshone Falls seems just perfect for your family. What will this mean for your kids and clogging? How far will your commute be?

I hope things look brighter tomorrow!

Sariah, I've only known you for like 5 minutes, but can I just say that I feel your pain. I hate moving. Especially to a smaller house without a garden. Been there. I'm sorry. You can do it.

How about they just let you stay put and commute? Or you can just buy a house here and stay. I hear houses are cheap right now... That totally stinks. Hagerman isn't that far away. Maybe we can find a way...

I am so sorry to hear that! You have been so happy there. IT will be fun to have you a little closer to us though. That is one good reason. :^) Do you need help packing?? We have a long weekend coming, and our house is pretty much a museum at the moment, and hopefully we won't be able to be here anyway. Let us know if we can help!

Oh, Sariah. So sorry, I know that must be so stressful. I hope that you will have lots of help and can settle in at the new place quickly. Praying for you!

Oh Sariah, I'm sorry! I hope blessings start to show themselves...

As the tears roll down my face...I hope you know miracles happen daily. It will work out!

As soon as I read your news I was hurting for you. I didn't know what to say (there really are no words to comfort sometimes) so, I said a prayer for you. love, T

I'm sooo sorry. I totally understand though...we are only a family of six, not eight, but moving for us every three years because of the military causes me depression beyond what I can describe. Right when you get adjusted and make good friends, its time to up and move. I long for Danny's retirement where we'll make our final move!!! Don't get too down... it will turn out fine, you're lucky to have wonderful friends and family!
