Yesterday and today, our highs have been in the upper 80s, accompanied by similar dewpoints. Am I complaining?
Are you kidding?!
Remember last year when Suki wouldn’t go out to pee because it was so cold? That wasn’t the only problem: there was also no grass for her to pee on, and there was so much snow, I couldn’t shovel a place for her after December. She felt bad doing it on the sidewalk. Better there than in the house! Those weeks were agony for us both.
I’m convinced that was the final straw. After suffering through her elimination problems, and surviving several weeks of extremely cold temps because of the polar vortex, during which I wasn’t able to get outside and walk much, I couldn’t wait to get out of there. That’s when I called R and told him to keep an eye open for a rental.
When I told R I needed water, he laughed loud and long. “No way can you afford a place on water.”
I insisted. He searched.
Y’all know he found me a great condo on a canal for a reasonable rent, and at the end of April, I fled without a backward glance. Although I missed summer in MN/WI, the absolute best time of year to be up there, I have been supremely happy in my new home in Florida.
Have a great week! See you Friday.
