Be prepared, if you get stationed here, for a slightly manic me messaging you a crazy amount of "OH and go HERE!" for things like http://www.nwtrek.org/ orngbiggrin.gif

We found out where we were going a week ago. We are going back to the place we both struggled to get out of - southeast, GA. I've cried about it, bitched about it, stomped my feet about it and now come to a peace about it. Mom is in her mid 70s and we will only be an hour from her, which will be nice because I do worry about her often. She is excited about us being back and she gave so much to me, this will be a chance for us to be there for her. We will have to be very on point about setting limits with the rest of the family (most of who are very "toxic" people- i'm sure some of those who are FB friends have seen some of those posting on my statuses). I've made some "natural mom" friends in the area, so hopefully they will come help celebrate the 1 yr anniversary of Magnolias birth!

Well.

Dang.

I hope that you build yourself a fabulous community and stay away from the toxic people! New babies give us an awesome chance to remake our lives with baby friends.

 

Good luck!

Thanks Becky, I will certainly try! I've been pretty good at making mama friends on this base, so I"m hoping that continues to the next. I've found that if I put myself out there, there are other mamas who are desperately in need of friends too smile.gif
