Monday Teeny Poll

72% of you are experiencing lovely, crisp fall weather. Casa Glinda is experiencing record temperatures and trying not to faint from heatstroke in October.  I think it is supposed to be 102 today.

That is totally wrong.

I apparently need to move to a different state.

Which leads me to the question of the day.

    I am mixed about this. I know I am going to move because of my husband’s job. I hate moving. I would never in a million years picked this place to live. I like the schools and the people here. I hate the house I live in and my neighbors. I hate that there are bikers clogging the roadways and creating hazards every damn weekend. I love the weather and that I am so close to the beaches.

    I’m in a situation much like awesomemom. I love the people we’ve met here, and there are some fun conveniences (three of my own orange trees? Never dreamed of that). But I don’t want to stay here and I know we cant because my husband works in higher ed and our state has decided that it is not only going to throw traditional university standards out of the window, they’re going to stomp and spit on them a little too. I regret the fact that I’m going to have to uproot the kids in another year or two, but I’m grateful this cant be our forever home.

    I’m a city girl, but I moved back to my husband’s hometown (and I use the word “town” generously — it’s a tiny fishing village), promising that I’d give it a try. It wasn’t too bad at first, but since we’ve had our son, I’ve found it’s sometimes become pretty hard to bear. I dream of living in a proper town where I can walk with son to the playground and the library and the museum, where I can meet other mommies and go get a coffee. But we have built our dream home here, on our dream piece of land, so moving is completely out of the question. So I suck it up, and make the best of it, and have been floating the idea to my husband of renting a condo in a city during the winter after we retire.

    And of course, I hear all the time from women who say that they would just love to have a home out in the country, with tons of fresh air and open spaces. I’ve got that, in spades, and I feel like there’s something wrong with me for not appreciating it.
