Allow me this moment of Drama.

I. Hate. North. Dakota.

There. I said it. Stupid, stupid, stupid place! Why would anyone choose to live in this frozen, barren, wasteland? There is nothing beautiful here, nothing noteworthy or of interest--at least, nothing noteworthy or of interest to me.

When you ask a local what the heck there is to do around here, they respond that "There's always Mount Rushmore". Let me remind the masses that Mount Rushmore is in South Dakota--a completely different state and about a seven hour drive from where I live.

I woke up on this March day, hoping to see some signs of warmth, or even just life outside. I wasn't expecting to go on a picnic or let my kids run through the sprinklers, I was just looking for a glimmer of hope.

But no. Of course not. OF COURSE IT WAS THIRTEEN DEGREES BELOW ZERO!!!

Hell has officially frozen over. It's a little place I like to call home...but only for one. more. year. (Insert evil smile here).

(PR disclaimer: The people in North Dakota are lovely. I mean no offense towards you or your homeland. I just hate this place.)

That is all.

I woke up this morning with frost on the INSIDE of my kitchen window. I thought of you.

I'm so sorry, I wish you weren't in North Dakota either. One more year - wahoo! You need to post some pictures of that awful wasteland, I have no idea what it even looks like.

I agree with Katie. Why should I come visit North Dakota when you tell me such awful stories about it? Hmmm....I guess you would be a good reason. Dang it...

Just one more year, there is light at the end of the tunnel:) At least you have those two cute girls to keep things entertaining!

A co-worker alerted me to your blog... =)

I'm living in Boise, ID now-- but was raised in ND... and while it is miserable, it toughens you up! When you move, you will never have to complain about the cold again-- and you can laugh at everyone else who is freezing to death at 30 degrees... It's only cold when it's BELOW 0-- with a wind chill.

Hey Dancinbackwards... is it Ranae that you work with? If so tell her hi for me. I know, I will never complain about weather 15 degrees or above again--that's just downright balmy!
