On the Other Hand. . .

You know it's true. Things are never as good as you remember.

When you can't have something, you tend to idealize it, build it up to something it's not, and long for it as never before.

During our little visit back to the States, I've realized that:

1) Bologna isn't as good as I remembered it.

2) I really only like rain if I'm snuggled up inside. It's not so much fun if I have to be outside running errands - getting wet, ruining my hair, walking around in wet clothes.

3) Cold weather not only means feeling very refreshed and invigorated, it also means freezing cold toilet seats.

So true! Since we rarely get rain in Phoenix, I fondly remember that growing up in New York meant that when it rained, it rained all day long. When it rains here, it usually lasts a very short time. But when I visited NY and experienced rain all day, I suddenly missed ...Phoenix.

I hope you're enjoying your trip back home though.

LOL! I live in So Cal, so don't experience the cold toilet seat syndrome, which is something I had never thought of, and made me giggle!

I keep dreaming about living in TX, where there is a little more variety in the weather than we have here. It sounds good on paper, but I'd probably be begging to go home after one very humid, hot summer.
