Some Things

  1. Dog + unknown stuff in compost pile = ick.
  2. Berries are much cheaper when they're not shipped 1000 miles in from the Northwest.
  3. I am handy enough to make a closet into a pantry.
  4. Self-service dog washing is cool--especially for 10 bucks.
  5. A PVC sofa and chair may not have been the best choice for a house full of cats.
  6. It takes approximately 18 hours after establishing new phone service for telemarketers to start calling you. It takes 3 minutes to register on the Do Not Call list.
  7. Here, "clear across town" is 8 miles (3 freeway exits) away. Boise only has 5 exits.
  8. You can compost dog poop with a big garbage can buried in the ground and septic tank starter.
  9. Here, "It's SOOOOOOO hot" means it's 95 out. It's possible to be outside at any time during the day, not just from 10 pm to 10 am.
  10. I have three tomatoes in my yard. As soon as the dogs figure out there is food growing out there, I will not have any.
  11. I paid less than $2 for a gallon of milk.
  12. Central air rules!
  13. We've chatted more with strangers (the Starbucks girl, neighbors, the landlady, the cashier at Hastings) in the last week than in the last 9 years in Vegas.
  14. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies = AWESOME.
  15. Movie tickets, even in the evening, are under 8 bucks.
