star wars and mild winter

February 1st, 2016 at 09:18 am

Yesterday we finally saw the new star wars the force awakens. A friend watched the kids and it was awesome to get out alone even if it was a movie. My DH loved how it felt like the original star wars and made the prequels look terrible. It was okay I thought. But neither of us are huge star wars fans, we're star trek fans and we both while looking forward to this summer's star trek movie, think it looks like fast and the furious 8 instead of star trek. We love the tv series and think it works better as a tv series. The new movies are good for being reboots but it lacks the substance of the tv shows and old movies. But star wars? Well it was good for a sequel.

I've come to the realization that where we live is awesome. LOL. I'll have seen my mom and family every two months since June. If we see her or them in April, we're going in 2 weeks in February for a week, then we'll have seen them every other month for a year. This makes the move even more delicious and ever to savor this feeling. Besides the gorgeous weather in "winter" it's 50 and sunny. I haven't even needed a winter coat or gloves or hat.

My DH starts his bootcamp in a week. He's super excited and ready to embark on a new career. I'm ready as well to have time solo and research the area more for us to potentially buy a home and really settle in. I'm ready to think about potential jobs as well. 2016 is turning into a fabulous year.

Now if only I could do a no spend month.

    I've been loving our new area for the warmer weather. It's going to be 72 today. I have had had moments of needing a light winter coat, and gloves and hat when I was a some cold outside band events in November. But it is nice to not have to bundle up day after day after day!

    I prefer Star Trek, too.

    Happy 2016!!

    It is a nice year. I am feeling more lighthearted than ever which is surprising since I'm usually depressed during winter.

    We have cold days but not minus 30, wind chill minus 90 factor. I've not been stuck in a snow drift even once! It regularly looks like that blizzard that shut down NY City and DC but not this year, not yet! We figure we'll get the roar in March but thus far I've worn my down filled, winter coat once and it wasn't really needed.

    We're alarmed about earthquakes in Oklahoma, are we next?

    I've been pretty happy about 2016 so far too. Smile
