Especially in the winter. I know it sounds stupid, but it is one thing to put on two pair of pants, a big parka, hat, and gloves to walk to my exercise classes here in town. But to do all that just to walk to the car, drive 5 miles, walk into the gym, undress, take a class, and reverse the process seems a pain in the butt to me.
And the boots. Don't forget the danged (very important) boots.

I am doing absolutely everything in the world other than what I should be doing. I am super frustrated with myself about that too!

You are so right. A few years ago LL Bean had a sale on something they sold as snow clogs. They're extremely warm. But, yes, that's another thing. I have three pair of winter boots. The aforementioned snow clogs, a pair of regular boots, and some dress boots. Since I like to walk, all are really practical ones.

I do NOT regret moving to the northern Midwest. I've lived in Hawaii, California and Florida, and spent much of my life in Virginia. I'd go back to Hawaii in a heart-beat (but my husband didn't like it there), but Florida, California or Virginia. it would really depend upon the community, and I haven't found one I'd love like I do this one. This community has welcomed me in ways no others have. So I put on my winter gear and stomp out.

Pretty busy day ahead. Academic upgrading, trip to town for some banking, off to hang with my daughter and do some work on my house. Walk the Malamute. Right now is the calm before I get up and go. Once I start I won't stop until well after dinner tonight. Have a good day, everybody!
