Welcome Back Home

Well, I wanted it and I got it. I love getting what I want by the way. I enjoyed living in San Antonio, as far as food and entertainment go, it blows Duncan and Oklahoma out of the water! You want rollercoasters? How about Fiesta Texas? You want Shamu? Try SeaWorld (only 3 in the world). Riverwalk? Well you could go to the lame excuse for one in OKC but it's NEVER going to beat the original. And don't get me started on food and restaurants..and did I forget shopping? No way! La Cantera is awesome! Coach, Tiffany's, Anthropologie, Apple, BCBG Max Azria, Vera Bradley, American Apparel (sigh,I totally miss that store)...and tons others. All in an "open air" shopping center. But the weather down there is ridiculous. Growing up in Oklahoma, December meant cold, Christmas meant snow (usually), Spring meant thunderstorms and tornados. Not there. Christmas Eve 2008 was spent all day at work (versus only till noon here)with stupid people yelling at you like usual, and then looking at Christmas lights with windows rolled down in 60-70 degree weather. Bummer. So I was totally stoked when we got a stinkin blizzard for our first Christmas back! It was like we were making up for 2 Christmases lost.

Then came the ice. I like ice, it can be pretty until it lands on a tree limb and almost crushes your chiminea. Thank goodness it didn't. Santa picked that out for Larry! Oh and did I mention the power outage? I think we lost ours from Thursday to Sunday. I'm not sure because Friday after I helped out at work until about 1:00 we headed out to Frisco to stay with the Aunt and Uncle. We had so much fun spending time with the family but didn't love that the electricity was out back in Duncan. I was just telling Larry that I can't imagine having a bitty baby to care of during that time. I think I might have been stressed out. I can't believe there are still families going on 7 or 8 days without power and with bitty babies!

There was talk from the Farmer's Almanac that we're supposed to get another bad winter storm around February and March? I just went to the website and it said for February 16th-19th. Stormy. 20th-23rd. Snowstorm, with 5"-10" inches possible. Heaviest in Oklahoma. Hmm...could be interesting. I'll let you know if I find anything else out.

Speaking of babies...I think I want one!
