One Week

Ok, So I have been here (meaning Parma, Ohio) for ONE week now! I'm having a pretty good time so far. I have been able to meet a lot of the other member students along with their wives. There are a lot of things that are changing for us out here in Ohio. Don't get me wrong, I am loving it here...but here are a few questions I have had:

I do not think the people here in Ohio really know what summer is. The weather that is occurring here right now, is more like early March in Oklahoma. I think that the high has hit 80 degrees only once since I have been here. It gets cold at night, so we are able to open our windows (who ever thought you could do that in August???). It has also rained at some point in the day every day that I have been here, except today...knock on wood. I just can't wait to see what winter is like here...I hear that they actually have one!

OK, so first of all...there are NO Super Walmart of Super Targets right near us. There is one that I went to today that is about ten or fifteen minutes away, but still?!?! Where do these people get their groceries, quite the adjustment especially when Wal-Mart is sooo cheap. Although, not really here. I look at their Oatmeal Creme Pies....they were $1.26! I can get the exact same thing in Oklahoma for ONE BUCK! I know it's only 26 cents, but it adds up after a while....Ok, so I am rambling, I know....back to tortillas! Ok, so I NEVER thought that tortillas could be sooo hard to locate in a store! I looked down their "Hispanic" food isle and found NOOOO soft tortillas....WHAT??? I also went down the bread isle earlier and did not find them, so I went back down the bread isle and looked closer and finally found them. But, unlike Oklahoma, they only had about a foot wide section for tortillas. I just found this to be a little interesting.

What's a blog??? I have no job and not really a thing to do, so why have I not blogged more than I did before? This is a question I have no answer to. The ONLY explanation I have is that in Oklahoma, when I had I job, the only time I really ever blogged was when I was at work. Hopefully, I will be able to get on the ball soon.

Now I know I had a few more questions, but now that I am actually sitting down writing them, I can't think of them. Oh well, I am sure they would probably bore you too much. I am pretty excited to be here in Ohio. I am really doing pretty good at finding things around here. Now, all I need to find is a job!! Hopefully, I will be able to find a good one quickly. Well, that's about all for now....Josh just got home from school. Laters!!
