Moving a Lot

Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy

I’ve always been moving here and there and it’s really hard for me to put down roots but now that I’m here in Texas I sure hope I get to stay. I’m a consultant so my job is what’s got me constantly moving around the country and when I’m not actually moving my home I’m staying in hotels all the time. It’s really hard for me to maintain any functional relationships like this and also I’d like to get a dog, too, but I guess that’s not happening anytime soon. My new house is SO cute and it just breaks my heart every time I have to pack a bag and leave it for a week at a time. When I am home I’ve been trying to work on the décor inside and make sure I’m saving as much money as I can with things like Reliant Energy info for Rusk Texas since I’m not home a lot to use the AC. I’ve met one of my neighbors and they seem really, really nice – they’ve even offered to get my plants for me while I’m gone so they won’t die! I don’t know, this consulting thing is nice because I make a lot of money but at the same time it’s like how long can I keep on living this way without going crazy? I can’t exactly live like a nomad for the rest of my life so I think it’s time for me to figure out what I want to do this time next year and work towards that goal. Who would have thought I’d end up at this crossroads at such a young age, or with so much money in the bank? I think it’s time I manned up and decided what is most important to me in life since I’ve got the money and that doesn’t seem to be making me happy, you know?
