Hi everyone. My husband and I just moved to Pennsylvania a few months ago from New York. All of our family& friends are still in New York. I guess I just felt a bit lonesome because most of my family got together today in NY and we decided not to go because we have to got there in two weeks for my god daughters communion. The drive is a little over three hours and we decided to hold off on our visit. It was just sad when my brother called to wish us a happy Easter and my entire family was at his house having a great time. I know it sounds a bit petty but I felt so left out. I know that my hubby and I made the right decision to leave New York but I miss my family and friends so much. We have no one in Pennsylvania. Anyway , we had a nice Easter anyway( hubby and boys) I guess Im just abit homesick.

Where are you in PA? We are desperately trying to sell our house and move to PA! We're looking at the Stroudsburg area? Maybe next Easter we can all get together I'd drive a few hours to spend Easter with you
Sorry you are lonely...my family is all in NC and together so I can relate!
I totally understand, and I'm sorry you had such a sad time. Since Mom passed away, both my sisters moved about an hour away, Dad's in CA, and my youngest siblings went to Michigan to live with their dad. It can be very depressing at times, and having just moved to a new town a couple years ago the only friend I've made is my neighbor. But she's sooo sweet and I really appreciate having just that one person to visit with!
I hope you meet some new people soon, it'll get easier!
Yea I know how you feel.. I moved from LA down to Texas to be with Jason so I have absolutley no family what so ever here. All my family is about five hours away.
And Jason works offshore and he's gone right now on the boat so I sat at our apartment all day long by myself and watched Shawn Connory movies (who I hate) and ate french fries cause I was bored.
Since I've married Jason I've learned to hate or ignore holidays because Jason's gone on pretty much all of them one year then the next he's off on all of them the next.. So its kinda sad sitting Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas.. you name it.. Alone! And usually no one calls cause they're busy doing family stuff but that's the life of someone who works off shore.. Maybe when the baby comes things will be better cause I'll him/her to celebrate with.
I'm sorry you are feeling down...I can totally relate. I hope it gets better for ya. My dh is military and this is the first holiday that we missed with family but we were soo busy and we have great neighbors that the weekend went by very quick!
