Now that we’re packing up, I’ve started thinking about the things I will miss the most when we go to Indiana. Really, this is maybe the best time of year to move. When it’s so bloody hot (100 yesterday, and again today) that you can’t bear the idea of wearing clothes and any place cold sounds like heaven, so you start sending away for brochures to ski resorts. And brochures for nudist colonies at ski resorts.
Still, despite my good riddance attitude about the heat right now, I know I will miss things.
Of course, you can assume the obvious ones, like good friends and cowboys and mountain roads and cowboys and cowboys and sweet jaysus the cowboys. So I think I’ll post others as they come to mind. Today, there were three:
The Southwest pasta salad from the deli at a local grocery store
The free childcare-while-you-shop at the same grocery store
Yes, you read that right. And not only is it free (and very safe), but I swear I’ve saved a ton of money by not having to deal with the “Mommy can we get this? Whynotwhynotwhy-y-y-not” requests, followed too often by Fine, get the Gogurt/Pringles/popsicles but so help me god this is the last thing I will ever buy for you.
Of those two, I’ll leave it to you to guess which one I might miss more.
And then there are these, which amuse me every time I notice them.
