    Things I've Learned Since Living In The Midwest

    • How to avoid dead racoons on the road
    • How to prove residency for everything
    • You're likely to be the only Mormon in your town
    • And probably the first one most people have met
    • The true meaning of "wind chill"
    • How to use a dehumidifier
    • That you can't pass on the right.
    • Game days are religious holidays
    But most importantly, I've learned a lot about myself.
    • I can do pretty much whatever I set my mind to
    • I'm more self sufficient than I ever thought I could be
    • I enjoy discovering new places
    • I'm stronger than I ever thought I could be
    • I appreciate my family, both near and far, for the efforts they put in each day
    I love living here. I love starting a new adventure for my family, and I love knowing that wherever we are, whatever the situation, we will always have each other.

    I am a little worried about you. Two deep posts in a row.

    I know how you feel. Kinda like you finally grew up. Nothing can make you grow up faster.

    Ok, now that both of you have grown up, and become stronger, can you come home now? I miss you! :)

    You can make any situation fun! BTW I haven't had a good haircut since you left. I may have to move to Ill.

    Amazing how grown up we are when we have to be. Don't be too grown up, it will suck all the fun right out of you. (somehow, I don't think this is too big a worry for you) :)

    And how come I never got a hair cut? I feel deprived!!

    wow, you're way ahead of me. I still haven't figured out how to avoid the live raccoons, let alone the dead ones. anywho, it's amazing what happens when you step into the unknown and find out what you are capable of

    Do people ask you if your husband has more than one wife?

    I think it's great that you can be happy where you are. A lot of people aren't and never will be. And they'll be super miserable for the rest of their lives. I think almost anywhere can be great if you make it that way.
