Another anniversary that we just celebrated was the one year anniversary of our move from Illinois to Oklahoma. It was this time last year that we packed up our belongings in a semi truck and moved to Oklahoma. It’s been a challenging and rewarding year.
Some of the challenges that we have faced included ice storms, tornadoes, missing my family, and getting lost more often than I would like.
But for the most part the move has been good for us. The people here in Oklahoma are very friendly. The school system has been great for our kids. Traffic is not bad here. Because of a well laid out road system, I can get to anywhere I need to within 15 minutes. Other than the occasional tornado, the weather is a lot nicer here than in Illinois. The cost of living is lower here as well.
So even though, I miss my family, friends, and real deep dish pizza, the move has been a good one and I’m happy to be an Oklahoman. But I don’t think I’ll ever understand my fellow Oklahomans’ obsession with college football.
