    Change is not always bad.. or permanent.
    And, even if you don't have chickens, you know you always have us. There is a special seat at this café just for you.

    RANT! [​IMG] It's a beautiful weekend day here in W central NJ. Just got back from doing a favor for a friend. Our windy country roads are filled with phalanxes of bicyclists five abreast across the roads. [​IMG] Do they really think they are invulnerable? Or have those hard bike seats destroyed their brains along with other 'things'? [​IMG]

    I've had a time or two where I have felt like a little boat tossed about in a big sea. It's not too much fun, that's for sure. But then I met my DH (after 19 years in a not so great marriage). He never seemed to worry about anything. He always tells me "God has a plan". It took me awhile, but I think he is right. All the things I was worried about (and I worry A LOT) seemed to work out just fine.

    It's ok to worry and be upset, but that after a while it doesn't help. Just remember God has a plan, even if you don't know what it is. :hugs

    I'm a very good worrier, got that from my mom. I was so good at it, she didn't have to bother worrying any more. Not only that I seem to be contagious - people spending too much time around me (like maybe 20 minutes) cower and crawl away with worries that never had till I pointed them out. IT is true that most of the things you worry about will never happen. So I HAVE to worry or THAT won't come to pass. See my predic?ament

    Hi everyone.

    Thank you for your support. I am accepting of our situation and I can even see that potentially this could be the beginning of a wonderful life together for hubby and I, away from the stress and constant demand of his family farm. It will also be a much more secure financial future for us, and I am very grateful that hubby has been offered the opportunity he has. I think I am just very stressed and very worried. The IVF is a big demand both physically and emotionally on it's own - and now we have a 3 hour move, a new job, the loss of the chooks and packing etc to bring on board too. I can't help but feel anxious, which I know is wrong, but how do you stop worrying? It's just my nature. Anyway, I am very grateful of your support and patience with me at this time, and am so happy I will still be welcome at the café table, even though I will no longer have my feather babies. [​IMG]

    I am having a quiet, 'at home' day today before a big day of house hunting tomorrow. Yesterday hubby and I found THE PERFECT house online, a 10 minute walk from his new job. Even better, it is UNDER what we had budgeted for, so we are desperate to get it. As we have 2 cats this will be a tough place to get, but hubby and I are going to offer up a double bond payment to see if that will sway the owner into taking us on. Fingers crossed, as it is a lovely place, in a great location. No chickens of course, but I think we could be very happy there. The town is quite isolated but I expect demand for this particular property will be high as it's so cheap. Anyway, we are good people with a solid rental reference history, and we are both professionally employed, so maybe on paper we will look ok? I'll keep you posted.

    Maybe they don't allow pet chickens?
