Nikki74...I don't think I minded so much moving as a kid, I think what I didn't like was going to a new school all the time. I never had that group of kids that I went to school with since 1st grade. I have scattered friends all over. I think the way my Mom did it wasn't so much the best way, but I know she did what she could...sometimes not so good choices. As I got older I always felt like i needed to move if I was anywhere to long. Now don't get me wrong, I love to travel and see new places, but when I get somewhere new, I feel ok for about a year and then feel the need to move on. When I got married I had a hard time settling down, and really feeling like this is my home. I guess that's it...I never felt like I had a "home"...my grandparents home was the only stable place I knew. Even now 6yrs later...I do not feel like this is my home...my Dh feels like home to me...but not the house. Does that make sense??? I lived in a VW for 1/2 a year and I think I felt more at home in that tiny space, cause I knew it was not permanent.
We are actually planning on homeschooling, so school will be able to come with us wherever we go, though I do realise that they'll need to find friends to hang out with as well.
We are planning on settling down 'somewhere' after the next baby comes...atm we are where we are because the baby is due in six weeks, and we're hoping to move somewhere permanently early next year.
I'm just worried that even if we moved to my favourite place in the world (Australia), I'd still want to move on after a year... I just don't know that there's *anywhere* I could call home. And that's weird, because my parents moved once when I was a year old, once when I was twelve, and they're still in the same house 23 years later. Plus my dad has lived in the same town all his life...so it's not like I came from a wandering background, and nor did dh. I just don't know where we got this wanderlust from! And I enjoy it, but I want what's best for my children too.
