Friday Five: My Adventure is Cold!

Amy's Friday Five: This is where I share with you five things I learned this week because there is always something to be learned. In the process you might learn a little something about me.

WOW! I know, right? You were thinking I disappeared or something. I know Lady Di is starting to freak out a little ( I need to call her). She has probably scheduled a call to the national guard today or on her way to file a missing persons. I haven't been around but of course you all know that I am moving or have moved I should say. Yep I am here in the beautiful state of Montana where it is freakin' cold. Apparently it snows here in October and I moved right in the middle of a storm a very cold storm! Did I mention that I lived in Arizona where it was still in the 80's, where me and the princesses still wore flip flops and capri's? I did! So we have been a little busy you see. We got here and then the truck got here a day later along with the hubs and it has a been a whirlwind since. See the Hubs has to go back to Arizona for a few weeks so I only had him here to do the heavy lifting for a day and now it is all up to me. Fun times.

Yesterday I spent the day shopping for warm clothes for the princesses and I. We had to trade in our flip flops and capri's for Uggs and long pants **sniff, sniff**(more on that later).

Anyhow, I better get on with it. I had to sneak up to my Mama's loft to write this and I best hurry up before anyone finds me. My Internet should be hooked up today so I should be back soon - I promise. I have a ton of blogging to do.
So here is a few things I learned these last two weeks:

1. I am NO trucker! koodos to them. I don't know how they do it all day? I am the one who usually sleeps in the passenger side on trips. The Hubs actually calls our car the moving hotel because the princesses and I all sleep.

2. My GPS lady and I have a complicated relationship. I think she gets some sort of thrill out of taking me to dead end streets. Of course that can't really be true since she is not a real person but regardless I still seem to scream, I mean talk, to at her at times.

3. I have entirely TOO MUCH stuff! I don't know how I am going to fit it in my new itty bitty house. I need help and a yard sale. (more on this later)

4. I sure hope it doesn't snow again soon. I mean it is October and I just got here. Throw me a bone Mama Nature! See I learned this week that that the snow and the clouds make me a little claustrophobic or something. It could have been the abundance of clothing I was wearing - not used to that! I kind of had a freak out the other day thinking that I wouldn't see the sun until Spring. My Mama assures me that the sun comes out often in the winter time.

5. I am having a little separation anxiety from my old home, my old house, my old kitchen and The Hubs, oh and my flip flops -neither which are old.

This my friends is going to take some time to get used to! I will be fine, really! This is nothing that a little retail therapy can't fix. **hee hee**

I miss you guys! I can't wait to get situated so I can get on here and see what you all have been doing.

Uh oh- I hear movement. I better go. Lady Di - I promise to call you today!

I can't get my signature to work.

Montana! You're just south of me (from Calgary). Let me know how that retail therapy goes. With the way the dollar is right now, I just might be travelling south of the border to do some retail therapy of my own.

Im so jealous of you moving from here in AZ (where its supposed to be 100 over the weekend btw) to beautiful Montana! Even if it is cold!

Martin Family said...

So glad you guys had a safe trip and you made it driving in the snow. I how the anxiety creeps up on you with that. You will adjust in time. The princess' will adjust real quickly - more quickly than you'd like!! I shouldn't tell you but it is in the 90's here today and for the weekend!

Take care and can't wait to see pictures of the new home. Also I need your new address when you have a moment to breathe.

Take care and bundle up! Sometimes, the cold and snow can be cozy and warm if you are inside with a fire and thick, mismatched socks! I wish it snowed more often here in Arkansas. Good luck with the move! We will all be thinking about you!

Stay warm, get cozy, and settle in.

Just don't go native and start putting dead deer on the back end of your truck and you'll be fine :)

heather said...

Really, good luck. I'm an AZ blooded girl myself & last year I had to learn what winter is really all about. I'm thinking about you!!

(Also, I ALWAYS fall asleep on long car trips. I don't know why or how it happens, but it does.)
