from the bottom of my heart- thank you for all the sweet comments on my last post. every single one was comforting and loving and supportive, i love you all, i mean it.
this week is moving week. which means my house is messy. which means i'm grumpy. which means i hung up on lando on the phone yesterday. which means i called back 2 minutes later to say sorry.
as excited as i am to be in our new place, there are so many things i'm going to miss about living in plano, idaho (pronounced plain-oh) first and foremost: our ward, we LOVE our ward. we teach the 5 and 6 year olds, they have us nearly rolling on the floor laughing every week and i got a little teary last week when they were leaving. we asked the bishop if we could just stay and not tell anyone. another thing is i'll miss is how pretty the drive is (although i won't miss the drive itself.) i see moose at least twice a week, moose! there is a mama moose and two little babies (calves, dad?) that i see about once a week and they might be the cutest things ever! i drive past open snow covered fields and the snake river everyday. i'm greeted by two dogs everyday that are always happy to see me, i'll miss them, even though i still don't even know there names.
aside: i heard my land lord yelling the name "katie!" and saw both dogs bolt towards her voice when we first moved in. so i always assumed one of their names was katie. well, one day when i was leaving for work i yelled "katie" to find the pups so i could give them a little scratch goodbye. at the same time i yelled katie, the landlords daughter was walking out her car and she said "yeahhhhhh?" hesitantly. the daughters name is katie, not the dogs, faaaaaantastic. you know what they say about assuming.
and while there is a lot i'll miss, there is a lot i wont. i'll list a few, just so i don't seem too positive. the constant smell of horse poop, for one. or barely making it out of our slushy-snow-covered driveway every morning, field mice, barking dogs, carpeted bathrooms, frozen pipes and zero storage.
i'll post some photos (of course) of the new place once we're settled.
