The Show Me State
WOWWZERS there is a TON of corn here.........I mean like field after field times infinity........seriously.......
To sum up our trip from South Carolina to Missouri.....it was L O N G
Three days to be exact.
My husband rigged up some contraption to the back of his pickup truck and we were on our way. We sold most of our belongings in our garage sale, so this move was easy in that we didn't have a lot to move.
After several hours on the road, flying mattresses (we gave our king size mattress away because it kept taking flight) a puking baby boy and multiple pee stops, we have finally made it to our destination.
We are T I R E D........
people are extremely friendly
THANK THE LORD we no longer live in the south!!!!!!
WOW is it cheap to live here
It's amazing what landlords think is "nice" and want to charge for when in my opinion I wouldn't put my dog there (and I don't even have a dog...lol)
I finally live in the "Midwest" and I can honestly say to all the Michiganders who think by living in Michigan makes them Midwesterners.......you are wrong.......I think one would have to be as geninuely friendly as these fellow Missourians to be considered "midwestern"
It's not humid here, regardless of what the locals think, one has not experienced humidity until they've lived in a South Carolina summer.
I hope, oh so very much, that the sun actually shines here........so far I haven't seen it other than for a bright dreary day.....ugh
So we are looking for a place to live amid a million other things.......just wanted to pop in and say, "hey"
