For all of you not friends with me on Facebook – we have finally, FINALLY, decided on a state. Colorado. We’ve been having major issues with internet connectivity, so the final posts on Maine, and how we decided on Colorado will have to wait for a bit longer. At this moment, we are in western Pennsylvania, on our way to CO. We expect to get there Wednesday. The kids have been fabulous the last two days. We’ve done some really long days of driving. Last night we didn’t stop until bedtime, and ended up staying in a Walmart parking lot, then getting on the road by 730 this morning. The real kicker is, we haven’t actually decided on a city yet. We’ve heard great things about Fort Collins, so we’re going to start there. We can usually tell pretty quickly if we don’t like a city, so we’ll look around when we get there. We heard good things about Brattleboro Vermont too, but when we got there, I just wanted to pressure wash the entire place. We didn’t like it at all. If not Fort Collins, we’ll go down to Colorado Springs, we were there last time out and like it. The worst part is that school starts next week, and I seriously doubt we’ll find a house to rent, and get whatever else we need done in time for the kids to start on the first day. We’ll give it a try though. I can’t decide what I’m looking forward to the most, reliable and fast internet connection, or a library so we can read books before we decide to buy them. We’ve spent a small fortune on books for them in the last two months. Mostly from used book stores, but not all.
