I just realized that this is my 100th post! I still find it hard to believe that I'm doing this and that you are taking the time to read it. Thanks!
Yesterday was a strange one. We had every intention of going to church, maybe one of the megachurches, to see how that's working. But when I was running the water for my shower, it never got warm. It seems that the hot water heater had blown out, and we were left with not-so-hot water. So we began to rethink the day as the water was warming. I have become used to the idea of not showering, much to Alex's dismay. I don't understand why you need to clean up just to get dirty and sweating unpacking boxes and putting stuff up, only to take another shower.
Anyway, we have found something out about this neck of the woods that we find ourselves living in right now. There are no grocery stores around here, only Wal-Mart and Sam's. Now this makes sense, knowing that Sam Walton (Mr. Wal-Mart) started his first store in Rogers. However, I am a coupon clipper and bargain hunter, and that doesn't seem to be happening much around here. We got the Sunday paper, hoping to cut coupons and found not a one. So we decided to just make a list and go to Sam's. Well let me tell you, I walked into the biggest, best-stocked Sam's ever. I was blown away by everything that they had. So now I have restocked some of my fruit for smoothies and am hoping to get back into some sort of a routine. I feel like I have put on weight and haven't had the energy to start running as of yet. Alex and I are going to go for a walk so I can get the lay of the land and maybe start the running back up soon. I am always amazed that moving takes so much of your life and shakes it up—not to where you can't function but really close to it.
So we continue to unpack and put our little house into some sort of an organized pile. I am blessed to have someone like Alex, who is organized beyond me by light years! It's something that comes naturally to him and always has. We have lived in one trailer, one duplex, one apartment and seven houses since we were married, and he has always been the one to get it together. I, on the other hand, stand at the pile of boxes marked "Kim's stuff" and start to cry cuz I don't know where to begin.
