I Just Didn't Realize before....

That a major con of living out in the country is that nobody hardly ever visits! Why should they? Town is 30 miles away.
We live in a highly rural area. Our nearest neighbor is a half a mile away (for some people, that's close relatively speaking:). Our closest neighbor less than 1/2 mile away is the cows (during the Spring-Fall), but more often than not Coyotes and Hawks.
For the second time this month we have planned a get-together with a friend (where the friend drives thirty miles to our house). And, again, the friend doesn't end up coming. The roads are possibly horrid. It's a long, cold, desolate drive that few people dare to make.
When will we have a guest again?
For the second time this month we have cleaned the house (so much it's almost hard to stand). We have tried to look nice for our guests (as home schoolers this simply means trying to look less geeky *laughs*). Of course, a no show.
I'm sure there is a very good reason for this, however this makes for another highly disappointing day of the same old jobs, school, drama practice, more school, some more jobs, eating, cleaning the kitchen and then going to bed.
But I suppose this is life and one must grin and bear it!

Drama, here we come!
