Moving Tips

Tips for Moving On
Over the Thanksgiving Holidays
When you move, the memories of family and friends you've left behind come to mind so vividly over the holidays. Some of you can't go back to be with loved ones for Thanksgiving after just having moved. You have to face the holidays in a new place, a different home and possibly alone without family and friends.

Try the following tips to help you in your transition at this time of the year:

Invite another family or a neighbor over for Thanksgiving dinner or for Thanksgiving dessert.

Volunteer to serve food on Thanksgiving Day at a local community service organization.

Visit an elderly care facility and befriend someone who doesn't have a family for Thanksgiving.

Start a new Thanksgiving tradition in your family. Get your children involved by asking what they would like to do.

Have everyone in the family choose a favorite recipe for the Thanksgiving menu. Give everyone an assignment in food preparation, table setting, and Thanksgiving decorations.

Go to a nice restaurant and make it a special date if it's just you and your husband.

Count your many blessings - go around the dinner table and have everyone share what they are most thankful for. Dwell on the positive, not the negative.

Just Moved! wishes you a heartfelt Thanksgiving!
