Hi Pam! I moved from a tiny two bit horse town of maybe 198 people in Wyoming (where I have lived all my life) to a huge city (IMO) of Pratt, KS. Here there are 8,000 people and many enmity that I had to drive an hour to enjoy (like Wal-Mart) back home. We moved here about 6 months ago and bought a cute little house that wasn't too expensive ($63,000 that would have cost triple that anywhere in Wyoming) and I am really enjoying my new home. My neighbors on the south, north and west of us are very sweet and the neighbor that lives across the street had back surgery many years ago so he understands my pain. So does my neighbor next to me on the north side. She works for the PD as a dispatcher and here a week or so ago she wrenched her back. She told me "Vick I so understand what pain you go through now!" I thought it was horrible that she had to experience the pain of back problems but it was nice to know that I was not alone. My sister is now going through this very same problem and now does not tell me that its all in my head. Its horrible that people have to experience our pain to actually understand what we go through huh?
Anyway...where are you going to be moving to? I hate the snow and though this area of KS doesn't get that much yearly I think that I have seen enough for a lifetime LOL. I love this city but I do miss home.
