Wherever You Go...There You Live

Today is a sentimental reflection of why you love to live where you live. Got that? Thought so. Give a big hurrah for my east coast buddy, Robin, who got paybacks to be my guest!


Hello there! My name's Robin and I am the Masshole Mommy. Momma Fargo asked me to take over her space today and I have to admit that I don't feel worthy in the least. I mean, how can I compete with the kickass cops & robbers stories she tells? I'm just a boring work-at-home-mother.

But in the spirit of being a mom, I figured I'd talk a little bit about why I absolutely LOVE living in New England (specifically the Boston-ish area) and wouldn't want to raise my kids anywhere else.

To begin with, I live about 25 minutes south of the city (we call it the south shore around these parts), I am probably about half way between Boston and Providence, Rhode Island, which is the capital of the state for those of you who failed geography. I love that I can get to two major cities in a half hour or less. Speaking of major cities...I can get my Carrie Bradshaw on in New York City in a little over 3 hours.
I am about 20 minutes from the beach. And by beach, I mean the Atlantic Ocean. I'm about an hour from the mountains and tons of great skiing, snow tubing and snowboarding. Plus, there are two drive-in's fairly close to my house (yes, they still have some in existance). Oh, and when I want to blow my hard earned cash, I can go to the two casinos in CT that are just over an hour from where I live.
I bitch about it, but I get to see snow in the winter and our summers get hot. Our leaves turn all kinds of purty colors in the fall and I sneeze so much I wet my pants in the spring when everything blooms again. As jealous as I am of the people that have constant warm weather, there is nothing that compares to being able to experience all four seasons. And you haven't lived if you haven't shoveled 18 inches of wet snow...take my word for it.

I really do feel thankful that I was raised here and like I said, I wouldn't even think about raising my kids anywhere else.


Thanks so much, Robin! Go visit her the Masshole Mommy....she rocks! Wednesday...is Man Wednesdays or as I used to see Sawyer on there... it was Sawyer Porn for the ladies...yummy! Now she changes up the men for a variety show.

And tell everyone why you like your part of the world you live in!
