I regret moving (I just need to vent).


General Talk

Thanks for your story and input SE :) That is exactly how I feel. The nature, the forests. All of that I miss so much, and FL doesn't have it whatsoever.

I miss this:


and this:

Florida just doesn't seem like home anymore. How I expected to feel when we moved back isn't even close to how I really feel now. I wonder if we could move back...

I regret moving (I just need to vent).


General Talk

Have you ever moved away from home, found somewhere beautiful to live, but moved back to where you are from because you have an emotional attachment to it?

I am from Florida, Sarasota to be exact. One of the most expensive cities in Florida, because we have the nations #1 beach. My husband is from Ohio.

We moved from Florida to Ohio and lived there for a little over a year. I loved it. It was beyond breathtaking. The seasons were incredible, the people were friendly, and living was cheap. I missed my friends and my family, who were all still in Florida. They would remind me daily about how much they miss us and wanted us to come back. I got pregnant and when winter hit in Ohio (if you are from up north you'll vouch that this past winter was AWFUL!) I had a newborn (and a 2 year old). I was cooped up inside and miserable (I have a feeling post partum depression hit a tiny bit as well). All I wanted to do was go back to Florida, where the heat was and where my friends/family were. I talked my husband into it although he didn't want to go back whatsoever (he only has bad memories from Florida, aside from meeting me).

We've been here since the end of January.

I forgot how miserably hot and humid it is, how rude everyone is who lives here, how expensive the cost of living is. I forgot that there is little to no nature whatsoever aside from a million palm trees. I was given a link, it said that a quarter of a MILLION people moved to Florida within the year we were in Ohio. What used to take us 10 minutes to get to, now takes us 45. It's nearly impossible to get to the beaches and it costs almost $800 for a ONE BEDROOM APARTMENT (if you're lucky enough to even find one).

The past winter in Ohio, yeah it sucked, it really did. But the more I think about it the more I realize that the only reason I disliked it was because I had a newborn, I couldn't go play in it- I was too worried about keeping him warm. When my boys are between the ages of 3-5 they would have SO much fun playing in the snow...and I could play in it with them! When spring hits the beautiful nature would come back and we could go hiking in the woods and go exploring...

I didn't think I would miss living there, I really didn't. But... all of the reasons we moved back are non-existent now. My family, we lived with them for a month when we first moved back and we quickly found out EXACTLY how they really felt about us... I've always been the black sheep of my family (of 7) so it didn't really surprise me. My so-called friends that COULDN'T WAIT to see me, the ones that BEGGED US to move back, I haven't seen even 5% of them since we moved back. Cost of living is too expensive, my husband is MISERABLE because he's working 70+ hours a week and we're BARELY getting by!

I am at war with myself. I tell Anthony (my husband) daily that I think I made a big mistake moving back here. I really do wish we had never come back. The few friends that I did make in Ohio were better people all around than ANY of my friends here. Not to mention the fact that I'm TERRIFIED that my boys will get into the AWFUL drug scene down there, especially since the education system here is terrible...... I don't know what to do. I really don't. :'(

Sorry, this was long and I rambled a lot.... I just have no one else/no where else to post this to and I needed to get it all out. If you actually read it all, what would you do?

Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo with Peppermint??


Dread Products

Anyone ever used this on their locks?Ragingrootsstudio.com (or whatnot) recommends it but it doesn't say whether it's okay to use in hard water.Someone on a forum (on this site actually!) said "If there's a Trader Joe's nearby, try their Tea Tree Tingle shampoo. It's SLS, SLES free and has a ton of awesome botanicals and essential oils in there... peppermint and tea tree = happy scalp." on a post where someone was complaining about residue.Advice? Right now I'm using a clarifying shampoo.

Any North Carolina dreadies?


General Talk

That's actually where we are hoping to move :) Between there and Greensboro (because I heard that Asheville is kind of on the expensive side).

I live in Asheville NC. It's a nice place if you like outdoors. It's also very artistic area with a large diversity. It was called the New Age Mecca and it's definitely a place of many ideas and ways of life.

If you are interested they have a paper called The Mountain Xpress [http://mountainx.com/ ]that you can get online. Also check out Romantic Asheville on youtube. They have videos. If you like local beers with funky names and great tastes, community drumming on Friday nights, and outdoor activities, Asheville could be the place to visit. Good luck!

Any North Carolina dreadies?


General Talk

Just wondering if any of you live in North Carolina.I am debating on saving up to move there next year. It sounds like exactly what I'm looking for... Not too hot (like Florida), not too cold (like Ohio), and there's mountains and beautiful scenery.After moving back to Florida... It just doesn't feel like home anymore whatsoever.
