Astonished

That is how I feel since I've came back to my old haunts...
I feel as if I am living in my body but in a place where I'm not supposed to be.
I know it sounds strange...
everything is where I left it, friends continue to call and we keep engaging in the same activities...
yet, why am I doing all this again?

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind being back. In fact, it is nice to be back to familiar friends, familiar school, familiar places.
I don't have to go through the adjustment of a new place, new friends, new routine, new language, new culture...that all comes with moving locations.

I just have to get used to the idea that I really am back.
The tears I shed...the goodbyes I said..
I should write a Country song about this one ;)

I think that makes sense - you had prepared for a move- mentally, emotionally, and physically. You did kinda move, but I think it would feel strange to have gone through all those steps and now you are right where you were before all that preparation.

OK, I've been workin' on this country song idea for you...an a one, an a two, an a...

Well, I jus' came back to leave you again!
This time it really is the end!
I'm on a one-way track,
I ain't never comin' back!
Oh hell, how'd I get back here again?! : )

Like lailani writes - that makes sense.
Now it takes some time to settle down...with time.
Have a good week ahead!

I know what you mean. When we were supposed to move from US back to Brazil, his ex-company took 12 months to decide if we should come back or not. And they gave us 45 days notice to move back. Since we don't have any kids, they thought it was all right to mess up with our lives.

I hope everything gets better soon!
