I have now lived in Moses Lake 14 years. It blows my mind! Prior to this I had never lived in the same place more then 2-3 years. I was moving from town to town on the West-Side. Not putting down roots just floating along.
In 2002 a transfer position came up in this little down and my husband took it “We said why not!” Little did I think or anticipate that 14 years later I would still be here.
I have to admit that first year here was tough and I mean TOUGH! Going from a town where you could get anything within 10 minutes of your home and then coming here where you had to drive an hour and half for some things was a big reality check. This is a list of good things that came out of this and what I tell my clients about this town that grows on you over time if you let it.
You save money! I can’t even imagine the dollars I saved not being able to go out on a whim and pick up things that honestly I didn’t need (sign up for amazon prime just for the free shipping). If you need to wait 2 weeks to get something it really makes you rethink if you need it or not.
You are forced to spend more time with your family if you like it or not! With less places to go you focus more on what’s important right in front of you. That means more family time, more time signing kids up for all the amazing Parks and Recreation programs just more time together with less distractions and ultimately that is a good thing.
Stay tuned for all the fun things we have available in Moses Lake for you to get involved in.
