Where are you from?

I'm originally from Montgomery, AL and now live south of Dothan, AL. It's not a bad place to raise kids, but there's not a lot in our area for teens to do, so they're pretty much always home on the computer or something, lol.

Where are you from? Where do you live now? Is it a good place to raise kids?

I'm originally from so cal, Riverside.

Now, I'm in a shithole on the nor cal coast.  :)

The area is BEAUTIFUL and majestic and all that, but not much to do overall. Peaceful anyway. Cold and dreary though. 

It's summer and I usually go to the river but I'm all bent out of shape today because dh asked me to not to today. It's an hour away and he's in a mood. So now we all get to be. Sweet. Oops ranting lol!

Oh, yeah, I've heard many stories about Chicago's food! There are tons of Mexican places in Dothan, the next major city from where I'm at and they're all pretty popular, but most are just one step up from a Taco Bell, lol, and not very authentic. What's the best food - any ethnicity - that you enjoy in PA?

Peaceful is nice, but having something different to do is also good. Oh, so he has his "man-strual cycle," as my girls say? LOL. Why'd he ask you not to go? Just because he's grumpy?

Who knows. General grumpiness. 

Lack of sleep, we just had to buy a washing machine, just went on a trip he didn't want to, etc. Whatever.
