I am not going to add any photos today, I just thought that i'd let everyone know that we made it to the mainland safe and sound. I guess that we haven't really settled in yet. Maybe it is because i'm just in denial that we are here. I love having my mom and my brother close, but it certainly isn't Hawaii. I've been feeling claustrophic. I can't believe how much time I have spent indoors since I got here! It is hard to be outside and it feels very unnatural to be indoors all the time. Ericka said that she takes her girls on walks sometines. She said that kids love the cold and that I should try it. It took me an hour to get the kids and my snow gear on, the jogging stroller out, and everything loaded up for a walk outside. I got a half of a block and the kids were crying and they wanted to go home. I've resorted to going to Mc Donalds, buying a $1 ice cream, splitting it 3 ways, and letting my kids play in their playground area. Some good news though, we got a car. I think that will help with the claustrophobia. My brother sold us his old saturn for cheap! I'm stoked about that. But...i'm determined to try to make the best of things. I remember that it is always hard to move to a new place, no matter where it is. Jimmy and I aren't miserable though, don't worry :) We are trying to look at it things like an adventure. We miss and love you guys in Hawaii!
