To the people of Alaska though, this is just about the end of the world. Everyone is walking around like they're melting and every store in Anchorage ran out of fans. I kid you not, we went to a few stores and called a few more before we finally found some of the last remaining fans in the city at Home Depot. And although this summer has nothing on the Texas heat, having no AC makes me very thankful to be one of the lucky people that got a fan before they ran out.
We've been working on moving into our new condo and building back up our home. We sold all of our furniture and left a lot of things behind at my parents for the time being, since it would either get broken or cost a million dollars to ship it all to ourselves in Alaska. I am so excited about the place we managed to find here in Anchorage! We're in a neighborhood that has a very California vibe to it, right by the ocean with a view of the ocean and the mountains. Words can't even describe.
Also, as if we didn't already have enough going on, we volunteered to dog-sit two of the most adorable little Yorkies. We have them for one more week and I am definitely going to be sad to see them go. They are just the sweetest and want to snuggle all day long, I can't argue with that...
...I hope you all have been doing well, I miss your lovely comments in my inbox and seeing what's going on with everyone. Thank goodness I have the internet again! PS~ I've been getting a bunch of people asking lately why we moved to Alaska, and I know I have some new followers who are probably wondering as well, so if you missed the posts you can read all about the move here and here.
