-Ticks. I have never thought much about ticks, but in North Dakota they are rampant. Any area with tall grass is a breeding ground for these nasty little bugs. Ollie peed on the side of the road the other day and when I went to put him in his carseat there was a tick crawling up his knee. Today I was changing Max from his swim shirt to his regular shirt and found a tick on the top of his head!! I got off, and no harm was done, but still!! Disgusting. And Jason sometimes picks over 10 ticks off a day when he is working out in the bees so I am constantly worried that I might get a tick on me.
-Crappy cell phone service. 80% of the time I have no cell service. It really sucks. If it seems like I am not answering calls or texts, it is probably because didn't get it or if I did it was hours and hours after you sent it. We do have a home phone, but I can't call long distance. You can call me though, so if you want my number let me know and I will send it to you.
-Wind. It is so windy here ALL the time. I'm talking 20-30 mph winds pretty much everyday. On a really hot day it is kind of nice, but most of the time it just annoys me.
-Mosquitos and flies. Jason has been warning me for months about how horrible the mosquitos are here. So far they haven't been bad at all (insert me knocking on wood). Everyone keeps telling me they are coming so I thought I would add them to the list since I really hate mosquitos, especially with kids.
-We live in the middle of nowhere. Flights coming in to ND from anywhere are ridiculously expensive (and the closest airports are at least 2 hours away), therefore we are sequestered from our family and friends while we live here.
That is all I can think of at the moment. Everything else is pretty good. I just had a bad couple of days and was feeling unusually negative. I'm over it now :)
