Leaving the city and rat race behind was something I sorely needed this week. Hard work week, dealing with the government shut down, lost a reserve paycheck due to the Capital Hill fiasco, coming out to the country with my hubby, Mr. H. was just what the doctor ordered.
Growing up in Indiana I was darn lucky to have a pretty decent childhood. Almost Norman Rockwell in some ways. I miss living in the country, no sirens, barely any crime, the people there, at least to me, are far more friendlier. Here in the city everyone and everything is in a rush. Living in St. Louis you are dealing with crime, poverty, and a population density I never got used to, (especially with traffic.)
