Parks Should be Happy Places

I took my kids to the park today and instead if having fun, I felt sad. I was sad about the crummy weather we are having and I was sad that I was supposed to have a play date with K and it fell through. But mostly, I was sad because my time at that park is coming to an end. My time in this city is coming to an end.
5 weeks left. 5 weeks left of my friendships, and my routines, and my life as I know it.
5 weeks isn’t very long.
So, there I sat on the swings staring down at my feet and wondering how I ever got to this place in my life.

  1. ((hugs)) I imagine this time of waiting is harder than the move itself (maybe). Sorry that it has you down.


    1. I think you are right. As much as I don’t want to leave, I just want this part of the process to be over. It’s a paradox really…


  2. I’m sorry you’re sad! If it makes you feel better (which it probably won’t), our weather over here is awful. And we’re supposed to get like 15 cm of snow tonight. Ugh.


    1. Snow is always worse than just “bad weather.” I hate spring in Canada. Unless you live in Vancouver or Toronto (or the surrounding areas), the season doesn’t really exist.


  3. I love those shoes – so cute!

    I’m in my last month here in Frankfurt too. I feel bad because I’ve disliked life here for a long while but at the same time I’m finding it hard to come to terms with my routines disappearing and my friendship circles changing.
    Hang in there. We’ll both make it through.


    1. Thanks! I searched all over the place for those shoes last year… I just had to have them!

      It sucks to move on. It seems like we dread change more than we dread the things we are familiar with. Good luck to you. Where are you moving to?


Tell me what you think, I'd like to know...
