I have been trying so hard to get my last videos up for you guys, but Youtube is driving me absolutely insane! It's taking 8-9 hours to get a video uploaded, then they're failing at 98%. Any thoughts? I really want to share them but I'm considering giving up...
In any case, we've been in Alaska since Thursday night and we're staying at Karl's dad's house. I'm telling you, it doesn't take long to get tired of living in someone else's house once you're an adult. Once we get our own place, whenever that may be, it just might be better than Christmas morning! We're looking around at some houses for rent and hoping that we can find one that may be inexpensive enough that we won't both have to be working just to move in. I'm grateful that we're able to stay here as long as needed so we can see what's out there work-wise.
We haven't even been here a week, so it's hard to say how well I'm adjusting. I've had my moments (like finding out that Karl's ex girlfriend is apparently living with his best friend so she'll be around ALL. THE. TIME) when I've wanted to run back to Pittsburgh, but I'm generally still excited to be here and explore the state. If Karl and his dad ever come back from whatever errand they've run, we're going down to the Kasilof River to go dipnetting for salmon. I'm super excited, although I realize that my wardrobe is not particularly suited to fishing in cold weather. Looks like a trip to a REI or Sportman's Warehouse might move to the top of the priority list!
I also promise that I'll have some photos of Wasilla up here soon, but it has been completely rainy and cloudy since we got here, so you can barely even see the mountains! Cross your fingers that the sun will come back out soon!
