No. Such. Luck.
Tomorrow is my 40 week due date so I'll be sure to post a photo of the
From Acerbica: How rural is your house? Is it horrible to realize you have to run to the drugstore/grocery store? Or not so bad?
When we first arrived from suburban SoCal almost four (!!!) years ago in the depths of the jungley green of July, we thought we were straight up entering Little House In the Big Woods-ville. I mean look at all these FEET between these houses! Probably if someone leaves their windows open, their neighbors won't even be able to see inside without actually walking down the street a bit!
To give you a better idea of our location, the closest gas station is 3.5 miles away. The nearest pizza place, with a small convenience store next door, is 7 miles away. The nearest grocery store (very nice, but not big) is 10 miles away, and that's in a sweet little town where our credit union and dentist and all that fun stuff is. And once you get into the 12 mile and up range, you're in the proper city with the Wal-Marts and the Taco Bells and all the etceteras.
You know what? If we didn't have the internet, it would be pretty dang inconvenient being out here sometimes. But we DO have the internet, so Amazon prime is my very bestest friend. Also, Tommy passes many eateries and retail establishments on his drive home from work, so he can always pick things up on the way. We have decent cell service now that we've found the right provider and unlimited high-speed wireless internet in our house.
You know what I miss most? Food delivery. No pizza delivery or Chinese food delivery or Jimmy Johns delivery. Good for budget, sad for laziness.
