Oh Friday, it actually feels like a Friday again for me. Not that my week was at all very stressful....unless you count the snake slaying in the backyard. Which in the moment, quite stressful. But now we are on the other end, complete laughter. All we can think now is what our neighbors must have been hearing. We live on just shy of an acre of land, so our neighbors aren't too too close to us. But the screams, and cuss words coming from our backyard were abundant. So sorry neighbors, but you just got the real deal no holding back of how the neighborhood just went down hill!
But who cares about all that when our backyard is snake free. Currently. According to the snake whisperer, "they gon come back real quick". Thank you for the words of encouragement.
Anyway....other than my new found profession of snake stalker, we have been spending most of our time outside in this glorious heat! We still seem to be the only idiots outside in the heat of the day, but clearly our Alaska chill hasn't worn off. Although I am pretty sure that we walked around Alaska completely dehydrated, because the amount of water bottles being consumed (and then me having to pick up) is ridiculous! A case of water would last us three days in Alaska. Not here.....not here. Between watermelon and water we are at the store all too often.
OH! OH! OH! So many things on my mind right now. But OH! Grocery shopping in the lower 48 is badass. Badass I tell ya. The first time we went to the grocery store here we filled up two carts which is totally normal for this family. We check out and the lady says the total is $196. 1-9-6!!!!!! In Alaska that would have easily been $300+. As it was for our semi-weekly fill up. Milk....cheap. Eggs.....even cheaper. Blueberries......cheap cheap cheap. A thing of blueberries in Alaska is upwards of $6. Not here, and Odette could not be happier about it.
Safe to say we are loving life! This vitamin D is soaking in and making us some real happy campers. And when we left the park the other day, and found an old train track (don't worry....no longer being used) to play on, the kids were in imagination heaven. It was good.
So go forth and have a good weekend my friends! Or at least I hope it will be a good one!
