Missouri? Misery?...We'll see.



Ok so I am officially in Cape Girardeau Missouri, I am finally reunited with my husband, which is so great, except I have only seen him awake for like 15 minutes total but it is happy to know I get to see him every morning and every night!
So I have had a really bad attitude about this whole thing, I was not excited to  move here, live in a hotel, pay two rents, be alone all day etc.  Today has been my first full day here and here is what I'm thinking...

Me and Missouri got off to a bad start because my flight was delayed like 3+ hours and so I arrived at around 2 am and didn't get into a bed until like 3 or 4 am, so that was a really long trip.

HUMID, OMG...I have never lived in a humid place, or even visited...When I stepped off the plane I was gasping for air, I feel like I can't breathe good here...I am pretty sure I will die of Pulmonary Edema or something, you know when your lungs fill with water, because it literally feels like I am in a perma-steam room.  
Today I went to Walmart to do some grocery shopping because apparently my husband has been eating ice cubes for the past 2 weeks without me because he had no food.  (He also stuffed all of his clean clothes into a garbage bag after taking them from the dryer, making them so wrinkled and mangled that they need to be re dried...what do guys do without a woman?)
  Anyways I was walking from my car into Walmart, sweating out of every pore of my body, that or just the water molecules in the air attacked my body, taking deep breaths as to get enough oxygen and wondering why I bothered blow drying my hair and I couldn't help but wonder why people choose to live here.  You are in a 24 hour shower and there tornadoes ripping through here all the time! I googled some stuff about humidity to see if I could prevent it at all and I found a stat saying that out of 12 000 people polled, 93% hated it....
This is my life
Anyways, we are also living in a hotel, yes I know it sounds glamorous, Blaire, Nate, Serena and Chuck live
in a hotel on Gossip Girl...Ours is just like that except it is one room and is nothing like that.  It is not as bad as I thought it would be though.  You really have no reason to get out of bed in the morning (not in the depressing way...well kind of) but you wake up and you are in the bedroom and then you sit up and you are in the living room and then you look to the left and you are in the kitchen and office all at the same time, it is.....handy....
It does have ok aspects though, free housecleaning, yes please, free parking, luggage carts to bring your groceries in, a vast quantity of towels and a free gym membership...to a one treadmill gym! haha Also it is kind of tender, but the kitchen has only two of everything, two plates, two glasses, two spoons, two forks, it was made for an eternal couple, "Just the two of us...."

So I was meaning to say that I have had a really bad attitude but it really is all great and I should be happy, well the people are really nice, everyone in walmart was super helpful and the southern accent by everyone makes me feel cultured! ha!  Ben says you get used to the water droplets taking over the air, we will see about that, but I really do want to be happy where I am so I am going to try and make the best of it, separating walls or no separating walls!  

So these are my thoughts after my first day in the South. Itsgonnabeagoodsummer, itsgonnabeagoodsummer, itsgonnabeagoodsummer, itsgonnabeagoodsummer, iwillnotdieinatornado.

Cassie - you can do hard things. I've lived in humidity several times. Here are some tips: don't blow-dry your hair. It will just make you mad. Accept that you won't look perfect. It is ok - you will look better than most of the people. And enjoy this time "off." Read lots of good books. Take up a hobby you've wanted to learn but haven't had time for. Downtime like this is hard to come by.

cass i loved this. and i really think you're going to have an awesome summer. like kristy said "YOU CAN DO HARD THINGS!" haha. but seriously. and you're going to overtake that 1 treadmill gym and finish the summer with such a hot bod. and bens going to sell like a million systems and you guys will be rich and then you can buy a lexus and you can wear true religions with super thick white stitching. best summer EVER

I think we can bond about this summer being pooched. I have to rest.. as in do nothing.. for the next few months to recover from a head injury. It's dumb because this is our last summer in Utah to have fun, take random road trips, and explore before we're poor students in med school. We even had a trip to NY planned that we can't go on now because medical bills are RIDICULOUS in the States. Glad those doctors saved my life, but WOW. Anyway, just wanted to commiserate with you - so I know I'm not the only one bummed about a lame summer. We can be glad we are with our husbands, though!
