Today, is the two year anniversary of moving to Utah. We moved here so that Calvin could accept a very exciting job. We had high hopes for our new home. Hopes that were quickly dashed.
I won't rehash all of the stuff that we have endured since moving here. You can read the archives for that. Besides, I think it's important to focus on the future and not dwell in the past. I have been in denial that this is now our home and I'm ready to truly put that all behind me. Let me tell you how serious I am.
Yesterday....I hung some pictures on the wall. GASP! Yes, I did. I have not done much decorating to our walls...because I wanted to be able to leave this place at a moments notice (okay...Yes, it takes a little more time than that to move) and pulling stuff off the walls would just slow me down.
And today, on the first day of our third year in Utah. I am going to get my Utah drivers license!
On this special day, I would like to thank God for Monica, Loralee and Jen!
Monica's husband works with my husband and they moved the same week we did. We met in the hallway outside of the breakfast room at The Comfort Inn in Ogden.
Loralee found me through a comment on a blog, in which I was bitching and moaning about Utah. She befriended me and explained why things are the way they are here and made me feel much better. She has become a very good friend.
Jen found me through a comment on a blog, in which I was talking about hoping to move to Minnesota. She lives in Minneapolis and emailed me some information. She discovered what city I live in and hooked me up with her best friend who also lives here. I now get together with Sara, every couple weeks and we are becoming great friends!
did you click on GOD? did you think he had a website? i wish he did.....
