What I'm gonna miss!!!

Ok so to begin with I need to say that these pic's have nothing to do with anything. I just thought I'd put them up so you could have the latest and greatest of the kiddies. So if your thinking "What the heck does that have to do with anything" Well it doesn't so don't worry!! I just like my kids and my family haven't seen them for a little bit cause all my latest posts haven't had any pic's in them and when it all comes down to it I am suppose to be blogging for them!!
So getting to the point of this blog. This'll be my official LAST post I"ll be doing here in Utah. Ooooooooooooooooo boooo hoooooo poor Melissa. Really it doesn't count since the blogging world is it's own little planet so moving states doesn't matter in cyber space. You won't even notice. Except for the fact that I've been blogging almost daily for the last while and you won't be hearing from me for at least a week or probably more. Man how is everyone going to manage. Jokes man jokes. That sentence is totally sarcastic ok. I'm not up myself ..................... much!!
I"m going to miss many many things about Utah. I can't even believe I"m saying that. If you'd said "Your totally going to miss Utah Melissa" when I first moved here I'd be like "whatever man I hate this place"
But times gone by and I'm gonna miss it.
*First of all my house!!! I dunno if I"m ready to move BACK into an apartment or 'flat' as we call it back in good old NZ. Man I'm loosing about 400 feet in this move. It could be worse. So hopefully we can fit everything in and work through it. My kids will be sharing a room. They did in NZ so it should be all good baby.
*Family. I'm gonna miss my mother in law who is a few minutes up the road. She loves my kids to the fullest and is the best grandmother I could ask for. I can't improve her in anyway as a grandma and it's gonna be hard for not just me, but my children to not be 5 minutes away from her and their popa as well. I don't know who's gonna feed us and babysit my children at the last minute! I'm also gonna miss being around for when family comes into town and we all get together and eat and laugh and let the kids run wild around grandmas house. I'll miss my nakaya/johnson/dodd family.
*I'm gonna miss all of my 'mates' I've made here and become close to.
You all know who you are. And you all know how much I love you, yes you. I think you're all beautiful and I'm truely grateful for all of your friendships. What would I do without you all? You all make and keep me sane, you all motivate me, inspire me, support me, cry with me, laugh with me and make me feel beautiful in every way.
Thanks for accepting me for who I am and not judging me. Thanks for your love. It's meant the world to me and has made the difference between me loving Utah and just putting up with it.
I don't know how I"m going to cope without seeing you all and being able to talk and have fun with everyone. I hope I do ok without all of you. So if all of you can download then you can talk to me daily and see me and the kids. Just add me. melissanakaya. It'll be easy and it's free LOL
*I'm gonna miss how close all the shops are and the amounts of shops there are here in Bountiful AND also if Bountiful doesn't have it, I'm gonna miss being able to just drive 10 mins more and getting to where I need to be.
*Money!!!! I'm going to miss how much money we have at the moment and the fact we're in no debt (except our house)
*Ward. I'm gonna miss my ward. I'm gonna miss how great it is.
*My street. I'm gonna miss all the families and relationships on my street as well as how quiet it is and the friendships my son has with the neighbourhood kids. Time to toughen up Melissa and actually parent now instead of letting the 'village' parent your child.
*Gym. I'm gonna miss how close the gym is and how comfortable I feel their with the classes and teachers. I'm gonna miss how cheap it is as well.
*Smiths. I love Smiths. I can drop Masaru off and go shop for an hour and most of the time, get the best prices and they just signed me up for a baby club and said I can get all this money back!! LITTLE TOO LATE SMITHS!!!!

Well now I've gotten that off my chest I need to try to get at least 5 hours sleep and be a busy worker bee tomorrow and friday to make this move a good one.
Usually when I get really stressed I go into shut down mode and Dru's left to pick up the pieces. I've only done it twice I think and I'm pretty sure both times were during a 'move'.
So far, so good this week. Two more days to get through and then I'm onto the next step.
It doesn't help that I haven't been eating right or exersizing the last 2 weeks either. I need those two things to keep me sane!
Alright, alright I"ve blabbed enough now.
Thanks for reading if you're down to this bottom part. Great committment.
