We’re moving where?
I just might be crazy. During what must have been a weak moment, I agreed to move, house and home to North Dakota so my husband could realize his dream of finally making what he was worth. To find a job where the paycheck you get at the end of the week could possibly justify the hours you have to spend away from your family. It seemed logical enough, he was working crazy hours anyway and I like adventure, right?
The first thing I realized was that there was little useful information for families in my situation. Sure, men by the droves leave for a season to come up here but a whole family moving up is not a common event. There are certainly other families here but almost everyone that I have met is native to this area. I can’t be the only crazy woman in this place. So, a blog was in order. A place where other families thinking about moving could find real, honest information about what is here. I will answer every question you have. Where will we live? What will we eat? Do people really make big money? How cold does it really get? (today it’s negative 20), What is the crime rate? Schools? What will we eat? Wait, I’m starting to repeat myself. One thing I should mention, I am food obsessed and not always in a good way. This has proven to be a huge challenge, but I don’t want to spoil any surprises yet…
So welcome, join me on my journey. Email me questions and I’ll make posts. What do you want to know? What do you want to see (I will be taking many pictures along the way).
