Gotta think positive… Gotta think positive… Gotta think positive…
Ok. Here, in no particular order, is a starter list of things I am looking forward to about living in the States:
- garbage disposals
- July 4th fireworks
- big front and back porches
- acres of real wilderness
- storage space
- walks in the woods
- Mexican food
- cardinals in the snow
- a more lively regional arts scene
- a 5 bedroom house for $65,000!!! That’s right, we just looked at the local real estate agents website and found a brand new, 5-bed, 2-bath house, way out on a country road, about 60 minutes from my parents’ house, for $65k. Genuine. Ok, it’s not the most swanky area, but it’s not bad — it’s just on a country road outside an old coal-mining town. But that’s fine by us. Honestly, we couldn’t get a derelict, roofless, dirt-floor, falling down barn around here for that. Yeah, so now that’s something to get excited about!
Ok, that’s a good start. I’m starting to feel a bit better about this… It helps to think positive, and I need to keep it going. Come on, folks, give me a push-start… what else can I look forward to?
