Snow Bunnydom sucks.
Update- I am no longer the seriously disturbed owner of a leaking home in the depressing mountains of West by God Virginia. I hate the cold and while it's a nice place to visit, being a mountain mamma kicked my @ss.
There, I said it. I'm not invincible.
While there were all sorts of problems associated with residing in this particular area (which I lived as a young teen and couldn't wait to leave interestingly enough) the final straw was health. I've an immune disorder that is not life threatening at all but seasonal in nature and aggravated by stress, and that's all I seemed to find in them there mountains. Friends in the area will just have to visit me...
....wait for it...
on the coast of North Carolina! Destination Emerald Isle, baby. I'm a beach bunny! Trust you me, you prefer photos of that to the whole mountain fiasco.
I plan to move there, open my own business, and live my vacation.
(Jes, I've been very busy these past six months.)
Other, yet no less exciting updaty stuff-
The uber-teen did run away to college. She moved into her very own appartment last May, a whole month before the 18th birthday. :( However, she's only a few hours away and the whole beach bunny thing will put me no further from her than I am now. That rocks.
It was one long summer without her, but we just returned from a lengthy vacation together (New Orleans and then Pensacola, Florida) and drove the whole way (and of course back), so were able to spend a ton of time together before taking our separate life paths. This trip was also very special because she'd never seen the ocean as we always vacationed in northern or mid-western US, and I'd promised to make that happen before she left for college.
It was a horribly stormy day, the day we left NO for the Fl beach, and any sane person would have headed home instead, but a promise is a promise..even in the rain. I'm very happy we did decide to go despite the storm, because the sky began to clear within an hour or two of arrival and it turned out to be a most beautiful day. I think it would have been worth standing in the rain in any case, and the photos of her first look at the ocean and finding a shell prove that.
The last photo actually made me cry, and as we all know, it takes a whole lot to make an evil conservative cry. She may as well have been three years old and blowing out the birthday candles there.
A few other favorite vacation photos (I plan to upload all to the photobucket account later and share the link because there are just so many, and maybe I can milk another post out of this vacation)-
Sooo pretty. > insert girly sighs here <
Hope you're all doing great and are as evil as you were when I last posted!
