So I got a job as a stripper. Well, not really. Just checking to see if you're paying attention.
The place I will be working, starting Monday, has a prominent sign inside that says "Let's go hunting," with Osama Bin Laden's picture above it. Any guesses?
I am really liking our new area so far. I love our cute little house, our kind-of scary neighborhood, and the fact that we have every store and restaurant we could ever need within a five-mile radius of us.
In fact, I started thinking the other day that I haven't had a tantrum since we left Germany. I haven't had the urge to blog about how annoying life sometimes is. Well, I guess that's because life is pretty nice here. I mean, I'm still trying to figure out which company to get a home phone and Internet from, why my mortgage payment book hasn't arrived (even though our first payment is due on February 1st), and why I haven't gotten a water bill yet (while fearing that it somehow got lost in the mail and the company is going to turn off the water because we "haven't paid the bill." Not to mention the fact that no one ever answers the damn phone and I have to go in to the office and wait in line for two hours to ask, "Why hasn't my water bill come in the mail?"). I'm annoyed that I have to go to the library to pay bills and that there aren't any jobs here that pay more than $8.00/hour. But other than all the normal things that most likely irritate everyone, there have been no panic attacks, no yelling at customer service representatives, and no direct orders for Scout to "get-us-the-hell-outta-here-or-else."
And I did buy my first handgun, which pretty much makes me feel like a bad-ass. And it kind of makes our kind-of scary neighborhood not so scary afterall.
I hope all of you are doing well. I really miss being able to read your blogs every day like I used to. OH YEAH! Congratulations to CalliValleyGirl! She's gettting married (which I heard via telephone from Sarah. Which shows how out of the blog loop I am). I'll be back to regular blogging and reading of blogs as soon as possible.
