- Streets without street names—seriously, only half of them have a sign to them.
- No rules on the road. Not your right-of-way? Not a problem. If there’s space, pull on in, if there’s time, go on through. And if you don’t, you’re going to get honked at. I could make a list of all the illegal traffic maneuvers I’ve seen just this weekend.
- Our church building has gated underground parking.
- Every Sunday, atleast a dozen of the sisters are wearing slacks to church. Apparently, this is the "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints of New England".
- Everyone wears these long super puffy coats in ugly colors. It’s a fashion trend I’m having a really hard time accepting.
- It’s getting better each day, but when we first moved in, it was starting to get dark at 4pm, and completely dark by 4:30pm.
- Having a compact car is definitely the way to go. Every time we have to parallel park, which is everywhere except church, I’m glad I was inspired to buy my stubby Hyundai years ago. (PS—our town of Somerville is the most densely populated city in New England, with more than 11,600 registered vehicles per square mile!)
- Dunkin Donuts are EVERYWHERE
- Whatever time Mapquest quotes, it will take you almost exactly 3x as long to get to your destination
- Babies are so novel around here! Everywhere we go, its like people have never seen an infant in this town.
- No one uses their blinkers. I feel like an out-of-towner every time I do.
- They're 'rotaries', not roundabouts, and 'carriages' not shopping carts
(On our weekly shopping trip to the local "Market Basket", where shopping on an evening or Saturday will make you want to shoot yourself)

I'm so thankful for great parents who taught me so much about what is expected as a member of our Church through their consistent example. Thank you, Mom and Dad! Its fun trying to be like you :)

Let me explain: the potato in the middle is the groundhog popping out of the ground, not a volcano. Don't be jealous of my 2nd grade skills.
Enough with all this free time--I just got a sewing job that involves 6 bridesmaids dresses for a March 4th wedding in North Carolina, so that's where all my baby-nap-time will be dedicated starting tomorrow!
