Well today marks one year north of 60. We've missed our friends and family, fast food, shopping, medical services, visiting, grass, trees, heat, thunder and lightning, humidity, farmers markets, NTN, liquor stores, camping, daytime, nighttime, milk under $14.00 a gallon and winter under 8 months long.
That being said I think we can also say this is one of the best things we have ever done. We have grown as people, have grown as a family and learned how to live with each other 24/7in close quarters without ever being able to leave (at times). We have learned whats really important and that there is almost nothing you can't survive without, You just have to challenge yourself to make do. We have learned to appreciate small things, to watch the tide come in, to watch the ice roll out, to listen to birds, and to watch and learn from those around us.
We couldn't have done this without the love and support of those down south who keep us upto date and feeling part of the "real world".
Thank you everyone for your suport during the past year,
and for God sake someone send me some liquor!!!!!
Take care of each other and be good.
