It’s a Shame!

It’s a shame that I have to go 45 minutes away from my home to get a good deal on dadgum groceries. How ridiculous! Gosh I got spoiled in the military… Well, I should specify that I got spoiled in the Air Force. I’m thinking Army folk don’t have as many nice cities to live in. The only Army post I’m familiar with is Ft. Polk and it’s nothing to get really excited about. Podunk town with nothing to do but go see a movie or go get drunk. When my dh finally got to an Air Force base, we went to Biloxi. Wow! What a pleasant change! Art museums, kid museum, historical sites to visit…all kinds of stuff to do and a home school organization right there on the base. In a way I miss that place but I’ll just be thankful for the experience. The people who made it the best for me are gone to other places now and it just wouldn’t be the same. Then we moved to San Angelo, TX and I thought we’d gone to the end of the world (and maybe taken a nose dive off the edge, at that). But in general, the people were nice, if not immediately. I mean can you blame people in the civilian world for having the luxury of being able to wait a while to determine a person’s character? In the military, if you wait too long, people leave. Then you’re left wondering why you waited so long. But anyway, SA had art museums and historical sites and kid activities…a really family centered town. And now we’re back where I started from and I’m realizing why I wanted to leave this place in the long ago times of high school. There’s stuff to do but you have to drive for an hour to get there! The only high speed internet at our house (and only at our house, mind you) costs an astronomical 89.95 just so you can have the amount of space you need to run all the new web pages using java and all the social sites. Sure, I could do without…I suppose. But once you’ve had it, it’s hard to let go. Not to mention, I’d never be able to keep in touch with all my friends like I do now. At least our town has a library (though it’s small and not really up to date…they are just now getting the bar code system going) and a couple of museums. There aren’t that many activities for kids though. I just wish there was more that was closer to us. Well, I guess that’s enough poor me’s for today. It’s a rainy day so this may post and it may not. My 89 bucks put to “good” use…
