So this is a total vent and I just have to get it out. We moved to Houston about 10 months ago and since I work from home I haven’t met many people. I worked with awesome people in FL and had great friends from school so I always had something to do and someone to hang out with. Not to mention, we lived in Orlando so I had the freaking tourist capital at my fingertips. I’ve been feeling pretty depressed lately, and I know it’s because I’m just lonely here. I know I have my Fiance, but I’m not a very outgoing person, so it’s hard for me to find any good girl friends here, and let’s face it, he really couldn’t care less if we have birds or swirls on the invitations.
Anyway, today I was totally set over the edge. For the stupidest reason. Ever. Fiance loves to collect coins, and since we got engaged he’s been buying silver bullion to sell when the price goes up and we’ll use the money for the wedding. Perfect, I love him for saving for us and doing what he thinks is best. On the other hand, I’m sooooo sick of getting 2-3 packages for him every couple of days. It makes me more depressed that he’s constantly ordering things even though in the long run it’s for he wedding of my dreams. We don’t have a lot of expendable money right now so I haven’t ordered anything lately and I hate checking the mail only to find more packages for him.
I know how incredibly stupid and childish it sounds, but I can’t help it. Anyone else gone through something similar. Suggestions? Just need to vent? Feel free here

I’m sorry you are feeling down :-/ usually moving anywhere that you aren’t familiar with is hard and it takes awhile to adjust. I am not really an out going person either but sometimes it just takes trying new things and putting yourself out there. Like a yoga class, dance lessons, anything–I know those things cost money.
As for Fiance, sit him down and tell him its hard to watch him spend money when you haven’t in awhile and you’ve been feeling really down. I am sure he will understand and want to try to fix what you are going through.
Just remember communication is so important. And that “missing home” feeling doesn’t last forever. Usually by 2 years that feeling starts to subside. Can you save up some to take a quick trip home? It might cheer you up.

Aww, I’m sorry you are lonely 🙁 Maybe you could meet up with some of the Houston bees to get to know them??? I really think that could help pull you out of your funk. And tell Fiance to get those damn packages sent to his work 😉 (j/k)

@Heatherloveskenny: I got into a dog rescue group, and actually the only person that I actually consider a friend here I met through there, but she’s had some family issues lately, so I haven’t really been able to hang out with her either. Fiance does try to understand, but since he’s only buying things as an investment he kind of doesn’t see it the same way. We go home every 3-4 months, but it’s still hard because it’s only for 4 days and I’m used to having family around allll the time.
@MrsSl82be: I haven’t seen a whole lot of Houston bees on here. Lots of Austin and Dallas bees, but not really Houston. Good idea about him getting them sent to work 🙂 Then I don’t even have know about it. lol

- Wedding: March 2010 - Calamigos Ranch
Aren’t metal prices actually *high* right now? It doesn’t seem like the best investment, especially in the short term. I’d talk to him about opening a CD or something a little less risky, since you’ll need the money soon and not in 30 years.

@organizedbride11: Yeah. He knows I don’t like it here and feels really bad because we moved for his job, so I hate to keep bringing it up to him. It just makes him feel worse and that’s not what I’m trying to do.
@spaniel: Yes and no. Gold is really high and silver is starting to rise. I know a couple weeks ago he was able to get some really good deals, and the problem isn’t him actually buying them because he spends a lot of time researching market values and all that before he buys them. It’s just that I constantly have to check the mail and see new packages for him. I don’t really need anything, but I want to get things in the mail too. As pathetic as that sounds…lol
