Relocation procrastination: The waiting game (again)

Posted on: 01/06/2011

Not that this is a bad thing. Now that I’ve got over the initial stress of trying to keep the house tidy every second of every day (an ideal recipe for a nervous breakdown), I have assumed that we will always get enough notice to make the place beautiful so I’m not stressing out every time the kids trample biscuit crumbs into the carpet.  I’m also making sure I enjoy what time I do have left while I’m still here.

I know some people who, once they know they’re moving, stop talking to their local friends and neighbours.  Admittedly house moving is stressful, but I would like to think that that’s when you enjoy your friends even more; they might even give you a hand with the packing while enjoying time together.   Some friendships don’t last after a move.  That’s as maybe – these days lives are tremendously busy – but surely that means it’s even more important that we savour the friendship now, while we can.

I found this weird. Why would people do that?

I think those people already had their hearts in the new place, and were starting to sever ties. Shame, really – these days it’s much easier to keep in touch no matter how far away you are.
