I am kinda Angry but i shouldn't be

Postby littlebeaver » Wed Feb 20, 2013 3:45 pm



We just got word that we are going to Mississippi for a two year project..... :twisted: :twisted: I do not wish to move to Miss. :twisted: see we were told that my wife's job would be based in KC and no more moving , [Construction] she's a QC manager and I kinda follow her around now...we bought a house in Kansas City about five years ago and I have put so much time and money into it, I was making it my own, I built a nice shed in the back and put on new trim throughout the entire house, custom painted the garage floor with that expoxy stuff, I like my house, two car garage with the openers and all..I like it..and I can't stand renting anymore even if the company pays for it....So like a small child I am angry.. she makes a good salary so I should shut up about it and not complain but we have a daughter in high school[10th grade] and it really hurts me to take her away from her friends and she had friends in Kansas she would have joined back up with going back...We are in San Antonio now and she loves it here, it just happens to be my home town but this move is going to be 8 States that my wife and I lived in.... If she doesn't like Miss. her and me are going back to Kansas and the wife will stay....So now you know why I am angry because we were told we wouldn't have to move anymore once we got located in KC...Ah fudge, I thought we were going back home..Fudge fudge fudge....Starkville Miss. will probably be our new home in June......I wanta kick something right now... :oops: :twisted: Texas, Il. Al, SC, KY,MO, KS, back here to TX and now Miss. :shock: We are lucky though that she still has a job with the economy the way it is and the company pays for most everything and all,,I will shut up now..I just thought she was going to be working out of the main office is all and I could stay in my own house for a spell..She started making way more than me so I had to come to the realization that she was the bread winner so I follow her now and I do my thing.....I asked her is the company will buy me a new Goldwing for this :shock:

When I was in the Army, my wife followed me, and I never even thought about what it must have been like for her and my son, who was 16 the last time we moved prior to his growing up and out. We are Canadian, but our last move was to New Mexico, where I worked for NASA on White Sands Missile Range. My wife did not like New Mexico, but I loved it. My son also loved it, so my wife sucked it up and went along to get along. Well, when the job was done, I retired, and she got her choice of where to live, which is where we have now been for almost 24 years. When I read this, I went and asked if she had felt as you do Martin, and she said that she had felt exactly like that. She also said, however, that she signed on to follow me around, so it wasn't as if it was a surprise. She did get to stay in her homes when I deployed, so she said it was not all bad. As you mentioned, in this economy, one takes what one can get. Remember that Mississippi is closer to the Central U.S. than San Antonio was, so you can visit and be visited more easily by more people. I doubt they have decent Tacos in Mississippi though. Hope you like fish and rice.

Why did I kinda know you were going to ask for a new Goldwing :lol: :lol: What news Little Beaver, I feel for the whole family, At least she has a job you said, more then a lot of others.In fact it's soon my wife which is a lot younger then me will loose her job along with our son that works at the same place.Life just throws curves at us all the time, and we have to roll with the punches.I sure hope things will work out for you guys.I keep looking at a reminder in my room and pray that things work out.

Hate to hear it, I know from experience (twice) what it's like to put your heart and soul into a house, and then be forced to uproot and move somewhere else.

Oh, and viking...your wife picked North Bay by CHOICE?!?! :)

On the flip side I've lived in the same place for +30 years and wish sometimes that my work had taken us to other places. I guess there's always two sides to the coin but 8 times seems a little much. Hard on the kids, especially teens.

I feel for you, Martin. We are full time RVs, so can live anywhere that appeals to us, we used to move a couple of times a year, but that meant that we couldn't have the Goldwing with us, unless we made two trips to move the trailer, and come back to get the wing, so now we found that we love the Hill Country here in Texas enough that we have stayed here for the past 6 years. Still hope to meet you on a ride out here before you go to Miss. Hope it all works out well for you and your family, who knows you might like it.

I loved it there,,Louisville was fun...we lived over by Fort Knox and the wife's project was on base,,,on the 4th of July the base had a big firework display and we took our pickup down there and sat in the back of it and enjoyed the fireworks and had a grand time along with hundreds of others.. Whata blast that was...I get all excited when we are altogether and we do something fun like that.. :lol: :lol: :lol: I'm a simple SOB... :lol:

I'm a strong believer in "it is what you make of it", I have lived in England, France, Germany, California, Texas and now Washington state. the kids have always adapted quickly and made new friends, they stay in touch with older friends through facebook and email. Every time you move you have the opportunity to learn new things, discover new places and make new friends.. Nothing is permanent, you will no doubt have the chance to move again in a few years if you don't like it, but if you move there already thinking you wont like it, you are going to be in for a disappointing time whilst you are there.. Try and look on the bright side, every where has something to offer, you just need to find it.. I loved Texas and hope to move back there in a few more years but I have enjoyed every location that I have lived in.. I hope you find a way to enjoy Mississippi..

Yep, you are correct, it is what we make it, and we shall make it the best adventure yet...I swear I'm getting a boat for the lake or something out of this deal...I already have the coolest bike ever..It needs nothing...My house is getting lots of snow right now or tonight, someone said 12" of the white stuff tonight...Leavenworth is getting 16" hello...and we are missing it, gosh darn it..I had a toyota 4x4 4 runner we had so much fun in it when it snowed, I'd get the kids in the it and we would go out and help people that were stuck and play around in it...The girls loved it..I was a wild man in that vehicle, I taught each of them to shift through the gears when they were just little guys...We made a mistake by selling it.. :lol: :lol: We will make the best of Miss.. I'm sure of it..Hey it's like 5 hours from Destin Florida...Hello.... :shock:

I feel for you LittleBeaver, but as you move through life, nothing stays the same. If you make this sacrifice now, who knows what is around the corner? You seem the sort of person that is resilient enough to overcome most setbacks, so get back on the horse, and ride it again. Life is full of surprises.

She had a sister here and the rest of her family is in Newfoundland. Nobody "willingly" moves back to Newfoundland after they have seen Pairee (a take on the theme that nobody moves back to the farm after they have seen Paris). At least my wife was open minded enough to choose a retirement home on the main continent. That Northern Island Paradise she comes from is too hard and expensive to get on and off.

Martin, your Kansas home will be waiting when you finally get to move back there. Just click your red slippers three times... :D

Martin, You gotta trade that power boat in for a sailboat if you are going to Hawaii. I would even volunteer to go with you. Like boats? Try this one :D



That was my dreamboat, but since the wife got an inner ear//balance affliction, probably distantly related to the stroke she had last month, I sold it. No more boat ownership for me unless I lose this wife....... :shock:

There's no school in the Columbus area that will come close to her school here, we may end up back in KC if she can't handle the schools there. :shock: .....with all the drama here I think she's about ready to move, other girls are getting under her skin.. I rode right by your house the other day, sorry I didn't contact you but maybe we can't have some fish at Laguna Madre on Rigsby and 410 sometime ,Think the guys would like that place???, I love their shrimp and oysters..OMG..the fishermans Platters is so freakin good..Or Or the Texas Pride BQ place is ok ...Hey do you think the guys and gals here would like that place...???.

I would assume anyone that likes seafood would like Laguna Madre, but when it come to BBQ....I get about a 50/50 thumbs up and down. Personally I don't care for their BBQ but that's just me...
Was thinkin....what about a meet and greet, families all invited at my place. We could have brisket,ribs,chicken.sausage, pot of pinto beans, some good german potato salad. For those who may have passed through the philippines back in the day..throw in some Pancit, fried rice, lumpia, some adobo maybe?? and of course some tacos, enchiladas, spanish rice,chips and dips. and of course other suggestions could be added. for BBQ, could add pulled pork too. (gonna butcher a hog shortly).
I could go a step further and way we could make it a Sat.Sun. deal, come either day, or stay for both. bring a tent,or camper,share floor sq footage somewhere in the house with air mattress. It is a fair size house at 3000sqft with 2.5 baths.
Besides Beve, ANYONE and EVERYONE please chime in...what you think if your close enuf to make it..We can work on a date.
