At out last duty station, I made a very good friend, the kind of friend who you instantly "click" with and whom you can confide in. It made it harder to move knowing I may never see her again. We try our best to keep in touch, but she is a single mom with two kids and she works a lot. Not to mention there is a 5 hour time difference between us, so it makes it hard to catch each other on the phone.
I do have one good friend here so far, my neighbor S. But again, I know, eventually we will both move from here... Its the same scenario with my old friends from my "hometown" its hard to keep in touch. At least there's Facebook right, LOL. How would we all keep in touch without Facebook???
Anyway, its hard, not getting to see our families on a regular basis. But, that's the way it goes. If I only had a money tree, then I could afford to fly everyone out here to visit...
