But life is good. I am enjoying MA much more than I expected too. Most of that is due to the help of living with KC for the first time. And having a place I can call home. I haven't felt like I have had a home for 4 years. But I am starting to feel that way now. KC is the best roommate I have had, minus that our apartment has been deemed a nudist colony. And I hoping they fix the AC soon so that stops.
So far, the thought of living across the country hasn't set in. I still feel like I am in salt lake and that I just have been too busy to hang out with anyone. I have learned that I can survive and that my body just understands how to adjust to new things without me having to do much work. I have talked to Kels, Mom, and Josh on skype alot this week, but everyone else is yet to be seen or heard. Hello, where are you? I told you it was mandatory you sign up. Either that or email me your IM.
The only difference between SLC and Springfield is that I can't tell which direction is which, with no mountains to use as a compass it is easy to get lost. KC seems to have gotten it down, but I don't understand sun directions. He still can't answer me how to tell the direction at noon when the sun is directly in the sky? But ya, it will eventually come to me. I hope.
So this weekend was a holiday weekend here. Tax Free Weekend. Oh ya, I like this place. We headed to the mall to spend our wedding gift cards on stuff we needed for the apartment. And according to google maps every store is located in the Holyoke mall. And they were right. I think this mall was boardline on the size of the Del Amo mall in california. We shopped at Target and BBB. I was happy to see some stores that are not in Utah, but I have wanted to go into. These stores included AC Moore (a Craft store), Guess, and H&M (yes, Lara, I guess you will have to visit us). Too bad we won't have much spending money. I was already thinking about Christmas, this is going to be a long few months. Anywho, the mall was three floors and kept going and going. I was impressed. And so was KC, and that is something. We got all our supplies, tax free, and went home happy.s almost finished putting together the ikea furniture. And I am currently working on the kitchen. I will post some pics of the final product once it is put together. But for now, here are the before pics:
