BH was just talking to our friend in Missouri and he's dealing with similar temperatures and humidity.  Not quite as bad as yours, but bad.

 

Which explains why we didn't move to the Kansas City area.

No place is paradise.  And even if you move, there's no guarantee that it won't change into something you don't like after you get there.

And that would really tick me off.  If I left my job and sold this house and moved to a different state -- and paid to have eveything moved there -- and then discovered that it was just like what I'd left, I'd be very disappointed.

 

It's inevitable.

It might not change into what you left behind, but it would change from what you wanted when you moved there.  


People are on the move.  And the funny thing is, they say they want one thing, but then they move to a state that does exactly the opposite.  And then they try to change it into what they left behind.  Makes zero sense to me.🤪

What doesn't make sense to me is that they can't seem to connect the dots.  You created the problem in the state you left and now you're re-creating it.  Zero self-awareness.

Exactly.  A bit like the current gas prices.

 

People would move to the desert for the dry climate and lack of bugs, among other things.  Then they'd immediately install grass lawns and swimming pools, and in a few years wonder why the area was running out of water.

 

When we first moved out there none of the vets had heartworm medication because the dogs didn't need it there.  Several years before we left I was giving it to my dog because the disease had followed the mosquitoes out there.

I don't understand why people can't do the research.  They move to a place and then seem surprised when they discover what it's really like.

 

We have the Internet.  Sure, there's a lot of make-believe on it but, if you know where to look, you can find a few facts.

 

Wherever I go, I watch the local news, listen to local radio, read local publications and talk to the local people.  And that's just a small percentage of the information you need before you make a stupid decision.

But consider where you moved from.  It's all relative.


And the thing is, you never know what those other places you might have moved to would be like by now.  You might dislike them just as much.  Probably for different reasons, but perhaps with the same intensity.

 

When I get down on myself for my current situation, I will often ask myself where would I go if I could go anywhere?  And I probably actually could go anywhere if I really wanted to.  

 

And then I think of this place or that, and I always come up with a dozen reasons why any of those places would s*ck. And I also know there would be another dozen reasons that I don't know about now that I'd find out about after I went to all the trouble and expense of moving.

 

At least I'm familiar with what's wrong with this place.  

The devil you know...😈
