Reasons why it sucks to leave Detroit.

In the next couple of days, I have to say goodbye to:

1) Anna, my very bestest Detroit friend for the last few years
2) My students
3) My "kids" (the S's)
4) Jeff (which actually makes me sad, even though I know it's for the best and I'm not in love with him anymore. Even so, I had such HIGH hopes when I moved in here, and we HAVE been really close the last year and a half, even after we broke up)

Worst of all,

5) I have to live WITH MY PARENTS. More specifically, MY MOTHER.

Reasons why I'm getting excited to go back to Holland.

1) I get to hang out with my sisters
2) More time with my nieces and nephews (I've missed a LOT living out here)
3) Kacey and Kishelle--I'll be able to renew my friendship with my best high school friends

Awww, I'm #1!
I'm gonna miss you. But I'm still going to see you so I'm trying not let myself be too sad. 3 hours away is nothin'!
Focus on the positives - Being with your sisters and nieces & nephews & family. Having some time to be off work for a bit. Saving money by staying with your mom. Etc :)

LOL Jen.

See how Anna rates ;) heehee

Funny though because when I read Holland, I was thinking, "She is moving out of the country? When the hell did that happen?!?" haha

I drew a map on of Michigan on the board to show the kids where we are (Detroit) compared to where I'm moving (West Michigan, directly across the state)...mind you, this is SIXTH GRADE, and I've been teaching them GEOGRAPHY (among other subjects). One kid looks at the map and says, "You're moving to Chicago?!"

Oy vey.

It's not exactly a picnic living with you either, you know.

Maybe while you're there you could give the blog a new look. You could play with colors, templates, spruce it up for the holidays! Everybody's doing it- Kish, Rob, Christina!
