As long as we're still married. I'm still not moving to FL. I told him today that if he still wants to move to FL we can get divorced and split everything right down the middle. He can go to FL and I'll move back to OH. He never answered. Maybe he's thinking this over???
We lived in Florida for a year and a half and only left because the work situation was so bad that we just needed to leave. We were working for my father-in-law's company, but he was hands-off. He had a managing partner who was the worst human being I've ever known and we couldn't work with him any more. The funny thing is we now own my father-in-law's part of the company and we have a majority stake in the building it sits in.
I was telling her last night that words can't explain, and I don't understand, why I love Florida so much. It's this weird, wacky, crazy, hot kind of place that I find so inspiring and magical it's ridiculous. It truly is impossible to explain what it is about that state. I know it sounds nuts, and I honestly think I'm crazy for liking it so much, but I do.
Oh, and I'm freezing my butt off now.
