Iowa Lady Loves The Ocean

Iowa Lady Loves The Ocean

Thursday, February 05, 2004

This is my first message in my Blog. I guess I should say why I wanted to create this. Basically a place to write and let some of my stress out. Writing has always been good for me. I am 45 yrs young. Currently living in Iowa where I was born and raised. Hating every minute of it. Wishing I could be on the beach somewhere. In Florida, Oregon, Or even North Carolina. Those are my choices. Winters in Iowa suck. It's either too damn cold or you have so much darn snow you can't get around. And we are even prepared here and supposed to be used to it. NOT. And Cold. -35 below gives new meaning to the word COLD. It takes your breath away when you walk outside. Everyone says you grew up here you should be used to it by now. Iowa weather is very unpredictable. It can be in the 50s one day and 0 the next. There is always an element of surprise. And it sucks. Each time I visit the beach I long to be there more and more. I am planning a vacation for July. Back to Clearwater Beach for 10 days. I am sure it won't be long enough. I would love to be there right now. I keep checking out their weather in envy of them. Ok enough bitching about it.

I just wanted to type something to get this thing started. I will add more later. As I go and dream of the beach.
