I have really enjoyed living in Arkansas. The people are sweet, and very friendly and I don't have any complaints... well I do have one. We live 10 miles outside of town. 10 miles from church, schools, gas stations, grocery stores etc. We live 35 minutes from the AF base... doctors, work, commissary etc. And with gas at $3 a gallon it stinks. Seriously, we spent over $500 on gas last month and I have no social life! I don't go anywhere that I don't have to go. I am a recluse. And while I tend toward introversion it is only slight... I am actually almost 50/50. So I am so ready to live in a community. To live, go to school, church and shopping with my friends and neighbors. For the drive to the grocery store to take 2 minutes. Same for school, library, gas station, retaurant, and doctor's office. Most within 1 mile of our house, all within 2 miles. I won't have to consider how much gas it will take or the fact that just driving into town and back will add 40 minutes to whatever I was planning to do. When you have a large family every minute counts as much as every dollar!
So yes I am very excited that life is about to radically change, but I guess that means I am going to have to take a shower now and then and quit wearing my pajamas all day. Just joking... well sort of. :-)
