This place I call the BURG!

Let me tell you about this town I live in.... it is dang cold! Recently they have been canceling school (only on certain days) for the kids because it is too cold. Yesterday as I went out to start my car it was so dang cold that for 1) my nose boogers froze and 2) the car took forever to start and wouldn't stay on without me pushing in the clutch and 3) I could barely shift because the car was so frozen plus it was making all these weird noises. I hope this weather doesn't kill all of our (3) cars. I think they said on the radio it was something like -16 degrees and this is at 8:30 in the morning. But truthfully, even though it is freezing here, I really do love it here. It is going to be a great place to raise a family and they have lots to do around here that is family oriented. Plus the new temple is almost dedicated and it is beautiful.

For those of you who don't already know I started school again. I know crazy right. I agree especially since I already have a bachelor's degree but I really want to do nursing so I am going for it. School is going well so far but I am used to not doing homework but at the same time I really want to do well so I have to keep up with the studying. I have already taken 2 tests and did pretty well on them. I don't want to get too stressed out either. I am still subbing but recently it has been hard to find some jobs... I am looking for a real job but I will just quit in August, so I dunno what to do but hopefully something soon. Luke's job is still going well, we are really realizing how lucky, or rather blessed, he was to get this job. It is a great job with great benefits. A home will probably come in the next 2 years but not until then because we are trying to pay off Luke's student loan in 1.5 years instead of 20, and by golly we are gonna do it. It is hard because we want our house but in the long run this will save us more money. But we will probably be moving in May to a two bedroom place. I am excited because the place we have now has no storage so hopefully something will work out soon (but not excited to move again). As for now you can see the house we live in now. Here is a picture with tons of snow as you can see. We live in the basement where there are lots of hobo spiders, so that is one of the main reasons we are moving (for the baby).

Hey Rachey! Are you up late Blogging too? Is the Tub of Chub keeping you awake?
I like the picture of your home. Looks pretty cozy with all that snow!

Yikes, I hate spiders! When we moved into our house it had been vacant for so long that the spiders, bugs, squirrels, etc thought they owned the place. I'm glad that you will be able to move and have more room for when baby comes, you'll need it! Your place looks cute though. I don't envy you your freezing weather. It was 16 degrees here last week and that was way too cold for me!
