Today's confession is about wanting to sell everything and RUN! FAR AWAY!
Some days I wake up in this -40 (Celcius) weather and I just want to sell everything we own and move with Mr.BB to South Africa, Egypt, Antigua, or ANYWHERE but here! Red Deer has a population of 80,000 people. In the winter it's a little more (like 110,000) because people come here to work in the oil field. This is the 3rd largest city in the province of Alberta and it's a HOLE! Calgary and Edmonton are both 1 1/2 hours in the opposite direction, so that helps, but who wants to drive that far to go eat at a decent restaurant? I wish we lived in either city, I would be a little more content. I guess I shouldn't complain because I have my job that I enjoy and it's not like we are stranded in the middle of no where, it's just really hard when you have no friends or family around.
There is no Taco Bell here. How the HELL is there not a Taco Bell here, but in cities that are smaller there are?! Makes no sense. There is also no Harvey's (which is a delicious Canadian burger place) or Red Lobster (which is my favorite)!
We plan on moving to Florida in 2011 (SO far away) if all goes well with Mr.BB's spouse visa appication (or whatever that's called). I can't wait.
