My life here

I expected to feel much different living in Georgia. I mean, it's a world away compared to Colorado. But the only difference I really feel is the humidity, the heat, and the mosquitos that keep biting me. There are some cultural differences too, but maybe I've already gotten used to them. I've been here for nearly 2 months, and wow, has it gone fast! Maybe home is wherever I make it. With Brandon here, it especially feels like normal. I guess you just live your life, wherever you may be. Hopefully that happens once we get to Hawaii.

Brandon and I are planning on purchasing some scuba gear for Hawaii. That is, hopefully, going to be our main recreational activity. I can't wait!

Friday night we went downtown with the Maffey's, a couple we know here, and went to a club for her birthday. It was a fun time! We listened to one live singer, and then next came the Peggy Jenkins Band, a blues band. The lead singer was amazing. We were shocked! I can safely say she is one of the best I've heard in awhile. Brandon even had fun! I was planning on drinking more, but I think my hypoglycemia has ended my drinking days... I had two small drinks and got this massive headache and stomachache. I guess I'm the permanent DD. :( I suppose there are worse things that not being able to drink alcohol!

We waxed my car today. It's a fun activity we can do together! Brandon and I are always scrambling for things to do together that are different from the normal activities we do. Washing and waxing the car fit great.

You know, life isn't too bad here. I don't have a job, but I've applied for a few for when Brandon is gone, to keep busy. I'm volunteering. I'm making friends. I'm exercising (especially this week, I told myself I'm going every day!). I'm just living as I would. What else is there to do?
