Yehaw! We have been in Texas for two months now and I have to say we are liking it more and more every day. It has been full of challenges, some of which we never anticipated, others we knew would come. For example, we were evacuated from our apartment because of a fire (unexpected) and we have been in either Urgent Care or the ER four, yes four, times already (expected). Even with all of that, this great, big, friendly state is where we now call home.
When they say things are bigger in Texas, they mean it. Their pride should be envied by every American. Texas flags and stars are everywhere and I mean everywhere. Texans love their state. How great would it be if everyone felt that proud of their state and all of us were that thrilled to be living in America? Just because 9/11 is over doesn't mean our patriotism should diminish. Get your flags out America! Be proud!
The bugs are also way, way, way bigger out here. They actually have a "cricket season". How disgusting is that? We have had more than our fair share of aggressive, giant, man-eating crickets inside our apartment. They are just plain nasty. Enough said.
The sky is bigger in Texas and has these enormous white clouds that make you want to reach out and touch them.
The people are so friendly and they will even let you merge onto the freeway in front of them! Imagine that California.
I hope to be blogging more frequently now that we are settled.
Come on out y'all, we'd love a visit! We'll keep the door open and the Texas shaped lights on.
