The first question we were asked when we told everyone we were relocating to Nebraska was “Nebraska? What’s in Nebraska?”
You think we had told them the husband was getting breast implants because he’s such a boob man.
I’ll tell you what’s in Nebraska.
Corn my dear friends. Miles of it. This photo was taken in the backyard of my in-laws which is Mooshi’s new favorite place. Not only does he get treats from grandma (and lots of them!) he enjoys sprinting in their back yard, chasing the cats and barking at the lawn ornaments. He also rubs himself gloriously in who knows what out there. It’s his favorite thing (next to the treats of course!)
There is also The Old Market. There are many interesting and cool things there, like giant metal chickens.
We also discovered a nice little Mexican restaurant and a lovely little bookstore.
We’ve been shacking up with my best friend which has been lovely because I get to see her face everyday in the morning, while we’re still full of sleep and padding around in bare feet making coffee.
In two weeks we’ll be in our own space, we’re looking forward to it.
Omaha has been kind to us. Florida was so hard but everything here has been easy or smoother. It’s been refreshing. We came here to start anew and to cut out the boatload of distractions that Florida had for us and give my highly sensitive nervous system a break from the aggressiveness that has become Florida living.
I don’t swear nearly as much now in traffic.
It was the right decision because frankly we were worried it wasn’t. So far it’s been smooth sailing and things are falling beautifully in place. The last step now is moving into our new place and getting back into our rhythms and flow. I look forward to it.
