I’ve been in Indiana since Friday afternoon. I met my bff, J., on facebook about 3 years ago. We’ve pretty much talked every day during that time. She has been wanting my family and I to visit her for awhile now and since Will is on vacation this week, we decided it would be a great time to drive up here. It’s about a 10-12 hour drive from Mississippi, even though on the map, it doesn’t look like it will take that long lol. I got to drive to two states I’ve never been through before, Missouri, and Illinois. It wasn’t the most exciting drive though because most of the land through there is so flat. I’m used to seeing hills. Oh and not to mention the corn. I have never seen so much corn haha. This is also the first time I’ve ever been out of the south.
We haven’t gotten to do a whole lot yet, other than sight see around town. I think we may go to one of the state parks around here or maybe the lake one day. J.’s husband works 3rd shift Fri-Sun, so he hasn’t been around much, but hopefully after today, he’ll be ready to go somewhere LOL.
People here in IN seem to be pretty nice and polite. I am just waiting for someone to say “You talk funny!” 😀 . It wouldn’t offend me though because I’m sure to some people that I do talk funny. I don’t have an extremely heavy southern accent, but it’s still there. If I ever did move out of MS, I could totally see myself living here though. The landscape is pretty much the same and I think the houses are cheaper. Sometimes I just think it would be nice to reside in a place where most people around have no idea who I am.
