Just A Few Little Observations...

People here don't move out of the way. I was in a mock Costco the other day (and I had to drive 2 hours to get to it) and every aisle that I would go down someone would stop right in the middle to do what they needed to do. They see you, know you can't get by and yet they continue with what they are doing. What is that all about? I would have to say, excuse me and even then they only moved sometimes. It's the same with the highways. If someone needs to do something, they stop in the middle of the street and do it. Everyone else has to slam on the brakes and not hit them or go around if they can. So interesting don't you think? I'm not complaining, just observing.
Something I love here is the grocery bags. They are thick and won't rip even if you put too much in them and try and carry too many bags. I love it.
Something that is quite an inconvenience is that you can't flush toilet paper or anything of that nature. Yep! I'm sure you can imagine the implications that has. It makes for quite an adventure sometimes. If you are sensitive regarding this subject you won't want to read further. Just warning you. :) So as I was saying, you wipe and then throw it in the trash that is next to the toilet. So the trash gets emptied at least once a day. I know some of you would empty it more often than that but that is the best I can do. I can't imagine being pregnant and taking out this trash. Can you????

We've had those same "observations" as we're trying to pass people in the aisles of Wallmart. That's why we hate shopping there unless we have to. I can't believe that driving on the roads is the same! Crazy.

i sooooo remember the driving there it is crazy, we went shopping right before we left i remember how rude people were in the store but i also remember it being wayyyy scary. The crap toilet paper in the trash can sounds fun with 5 kids and wes... just don't get prego, i remember how sick you get. Hope you are have a great day today. I ate a mango this morning and thought of you.
