Every day I tell myself that I can do this. . . I can manage these 3 kids on my own with no family close by and no friends yet. I’ve just started working from home for a great lawyer based on the Peninsula but it will be a few months at least until I’m caught up with bills and can feed my kids something better than pasta 4 times a week! 🙂
Right now Richard is okay with me lugging the boys with me any time I need to meet with him at his home office but I imagine that will get old to ANY normal human being. It’s difficult especially with the boys’ ages being 4, 2, and almost 1! Oh how I wish my mom was here with me to help a bit. She really wants me to move back to Indiana but I really can’t imagine leaving California. At the same time I tend to feel out of place here. . . not one lick of me is a California girl! But there’s so much here for the kids that just doesn’t exist in Indiana. I can’t bear the thought of pulling them away from this.
Now I’m considering moving away from Sacramento and closer to the Peninsula. I hear it is gruesomely expensive. Anyone have any input as to what would be a good city? Anyone have any advice on moving kids too frequently in a short amount of time? They’re young enough and seem fine with whatever I decide but I’d hate for there to be some long-term impact. Not to mention our neighborhood is a bit aged up here in Sacramento. lol. I need some young blood around me so I can socialize and have a life again! I would love any suggestions!
