i wish that i had pictures to go with these. but blogger is being a pain in the butt with uploading pictures, plus our camera batteries aren't working so great. but i'll post pictures when i can. because these are the things that are now my everyday life. and it's not strange anymore, it's just life. and i've learned that if i really think of us living here, nothing i see or hear really surprises me anymore.
