Home sweet home

I have a daughter who lives in NYC and I hate it. NYC if fine of course but what I hate is that she’s there. I want her here in Cincy with me. I know that’s not going to happen, her job in NY and she couldn’t have that job if she lived here.

Three of my kids have lived away from home due to jobs. One in Baltimore, one in DC and now NY. They could have gotten some job in Cincy but they went to college, did well and then got good jobs and they were not here.

I’m not like that at all. I’ve lived in Cincy all my life. My husband worked for GE and we didn’t have to move and that was fine by me.

I know there are a lot of really neat places to live but for me this is home. My parents were here, and all my relatives. And my husband’s family too. (And so is my hairdresser. I kid you not. If I ever moved I’d have to fly back and have her cut my hair!)

So what about you? Are you living in the city/town where you were born? Where you grew up?

Did you go away to college then relocate to a job from there? Did you have to move to get that job you’ve always wanted?
