From what I've heard about heaven, it's hard to differentiate between the two.

You're funny! I would have said that Albany, at least, is where the devil walks his dog--and he's none too particular about cleaning up, afterwards.

Seriously, though, I do hope your experience here is better than ours has been. I am doing everything I can to get us out of here.

I have to say I'm surprised too. From whart I hear, Albany is where the devil's mom sent him when he needed to be punished. What do you like about it?

It's always possible that Jeff has moved here from somewhere WORSE, although that beggars imagination.

FlourChild and Tdiddy0027- So I maybe slightly exaggerated, but I am happy to be here. Where I lived previously (Waukegan, IL) wasn't horrible, but it was far from family/relatives, and with the massive population/traffic jams, brutal winters, high cost of living, etc., it wasn't where I wanted to be long-term. So I get down here in the Albany/Leesburg area, and there's no more massive population/traffic jams, brutal winters, high cost of living, etc., and with it being just a few hours from family/relatives, it seems a lot closer to heaven than where I came from! For your sake I hope you're able to get outta here and back to 'bama sometime soon!

That explains a lot (the relatively high cost of living, and being far from family). Traffic here isn't anything compared even to Huntsville. I mean, people here are rude drivers, more so than Huntsville, but there aren't as many people, so that aspect evens out a little.

We're doing what we can to get ready to move. My husband's field is somewhat specialized, which makes the job hunt a little harder. Where there's a will, there's a way.

Jeff, I am very, very glad you're here and happy. I hope that Albany treats you right and that you enjoy it here. Some people really do.

Sweetie, everybody who's listened to me gripe and gripe and GRIPE surely feels the same way. Bless your heart.

Sounds like your idea of Heaven is more like Hell.
