Confessional Thursday

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.

Weather is definitely a factor in deciding where to live for us too! Vancouver isn't as bad in terms of cold but the no sun thing gets to me in the winter time!

You sound just like me!! hahaha Only our population is 6,000 and when we "run away" it's TO the city of 80,000 which is 2.5 hrs away...with nothing in-between. Not even a place to pee. The middle of nowhere sucks and it's definitely okay to dream about running away and it's always okay to complain. People who tell you not to complain probably live in a cushy city somewhere. With a Mc Donalds. And a Wal Mart. haha
