Nothing New

I am trying to keep up on my blogging, but I really don't have anything new to report. I am still just waiting to move into the new house (well, old house, but new to us!). Six weeks to go. The snow just doesn't go away. I was told before we moved here that it didn't snow all that often. But this year, it has. I guess it followed me. Great. Ciara is still enjoying school, as is Caden. We are planning a trip to the King of Prussia this weekend, as long as the snow stops. I get a kick out of the names in this state. King of Prussia, Wilkes-Barre, Jim Thorpe, Intercourse are all names of towns/cities. The reason for the trip to the KofP is for shopping. According to my internet sources, the mall in KofP is meant to the one of the best, 2nd to the Mall of America. I am quite excited to see it. I guess that is all for now. One day I might have more interesting posts. Hopefully.

Bored Beyond Belief

Yes, I am bored. PA is nice, and I think I will be very happy here, but for now I am bored. I have no friends, and that is why I am bored. I have no house, which also contributes to the boredom. OK, we technically are living in a house, but it is a rental, and not one that we are planning on living in for too much longer. I have to TV, and no internet, so besides being bored, I feel completely cut off from civilization. I may go crazy. I spend tons of time at the library sucking up all the free internet that I can handle. I miss my friends and family. I need some entertainment. Please email me or call me. I am SO BORED. On the positive side, it has definitely made us more connected as a family. We pretty much just have each other to depend on, which is nice in some ways. But I still need friends. I know it takes time to make them, but couldn't I just run into someone and have them say, "Would you be my friend?" It worked that way in elementary school, why not now? We also now have a pet. We got a guinea pig. She is black and white and 5 months old and called Daisy. The kids are in love with her, but she is still quite shy. She hides most of the day, but we are working on getting her used to us.

Here in PA

Yes, we made it. Everything is going well, I just don't have access to the internet. We have talked about getting is set up, but we are most likely moving again in April to a more permanent house. This new house is in a different borough (I am working on getting the lingo down) and I can't find any internet providers that service both areas. You would think this wouldn't be too difficult since the 2 places are only about 10 miles apart, but apparently this makes a big difference. I don't know if I can last for another 2 months without the internet in the house, but I may not have a choice. Ciara LOVES her school. After her first day there she told me that she doesn't want to go back to Utah. I am loving it too. I LOVE full day kindergarten. I LOVE the smaller class size. She seems to be much happier at this school. Caden is definitely bored without his sister. I have started him in preschool, but he is still with me most of the day, and we do boring stuff like run errands, and explore different areas. I get a little thrill every time I am at Target and the Amish come in to do their shopping. I am not sure why, but I am fascinated by it all. I am also confused as to the different kinds of Amish and Mennonite. I see some in cars, some texting, some all in black, some in buggies, but they all have skirts and scarves on their heads (or bonnets). I find it simply fascinating. I do miss all my Utah friends and family. I am really quite bored here. I know it will get better once we get settled. I can't wait to unpack everything and decorate. If I can just hold out until April . . .
