I have nothing to say today. Except that I drove through McDonald’s twice yesterday and didn’t order A Diet Coke either time. Not sure why I was there. It was practice for my new non-habit. And also silly torture. And also I had twenty minutes to kill and the baby wanted a drink of juice. And then a hamburger (only ketchup).
Also, I didn’t know any of the workers that I saw. WHAT? I am gone for, like, 6 days and they hire all new employees? I hate you!
I am wondering if anybody would like to come scrub my floors. Not the middles- I can do that. But the crevices and the corners. I’ve never lived anywhere this long and I am used to just moving at this point. Also- cleaning the oven. Isn’t that just a “moving out day” chore? Time to move.
Speaking of moving, did you know that the median home price in the Northern Virginia/DC metro area is $382,000?? (median family income $99,000)
And in Wisconsin, where my parents live? $118,000 (median family income $66,000)
And in Utah, where my in-laws live? $216,000 (median family income $69,000)
WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE?
But, on the other hand, I really would like to try living overseas. Like, in a beach house in Ecuador. Or in Spain. “Espana, mi amor!.” Or Thailand, perhaps.
We are far enough from family at this point, that we might as well be living somewhere exotic.
What do you consider exotic? We lived in Hawaii once and that was exotic. And expensive:
Honolulu: median home price $682,00… median family income: $83,000.
Ouch! What the hey? At least the beach is free.
What are we talking about again?
See… I have nothing to say today. Do you?
Fellow bloggers: Say “hi” to me in the comments, gimme the link to your favorite blog post this week (if you have one). I want to come read you.
All you other lovely people, say “hi” and tell me where you want to live next and also when you are coming over to scrub the floors. I’ll feed you homemade lasagna.
