Anytime..:-) I kind of know how you feel with the moving part. I live in the US for about almost for years now and I also struggled sometimes with motivation and lonelyness. That was for me the toughest part.Especially after I got my daughter.Because I would have love to get more friends visits, meeting with those who also already have kids, someone helping me out with my daughter here and there. And I know my friends would have live to do so.But since I'm here I have to adjust to the situation here. So if you don't have anybody there..who cares? Take your kids once in a while and get to the park, or join some mom groups in your area or ask your hubby to take over the older one for a while so you have at least some support

        I would love to take time to myself but my 7 month old doesn't do well with others and I dont have many friends where I live I moved from TX to Washington and and haven't met really anyone that I get along with so its hard to get out of the house. Pluse I have gained alot sine my pregnancie and I think that has alot to do with the way I feel but I can't find that energy or spark to motivate myself like I use to have.

          Spring ... moving can be hard ... and not having friends in the area can be a difficult non motivator! What about joining a gym ... this is a great way to loose weight and meet new people!
