SOC Sunday-Where I live

I live in a county just outside the Nation’s Capital.  My husbands job brought us here after he left Active Duty.  The plan was to stay only five years. We had arrived during a big snowstorm, and I had not only never seen that much snow, but had never lived anywhere further north than Georgia.  We had a five year plan, we’ve been here eleven.
There is so much to do and see here, from museums that are FREE, to concerts, Independent movies, lectures, etc..  We live in a very affluent county, with the top charter school in the nation, but there is still poverty and people in need.  My kids go to school with a varied student body from many different nations. 
I like the house I live in.  We spent one day looking at probably fourteen houses and this one was the one that had the least that needed to be fixed.  It’s been work, but we have made it the home we love, although my girls would tell you that they’d rather be living in a BIGGER house!!!!

This was my 5 minute Stream of Consciousness Sunday post. It’s five minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…
  • Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
  • Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.
  • Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
