We're not all miserable!

Download wordart here

OK, so according to the latest Forbes list I live in the second most miserable city in America. They said the only thing keeping us out of the number one spot is our awesome weather and lack of state income taxes. Well, isn't that enough to keep us on the happy list? I've lived in states with high state taxes before and it's no fun!

Maybe our politicians are corrupt, but really isn't that true of politicians everywhere?

Sure we've got one of highest violent crime rates in the country, but have you seen how crime is on the rise in small town America? Now, that's scary!

We have no subway system and the metrorail has a limited run so the rush hour commute is a pain, but those express lanes on the interstate are awesome and so worth the price!

Our housing market is in the toilet right now, but our houses are close to, if not on, the beach!

You would have to actually go to Cuba to get a better Cuban sandwich and the Columbian pastries are to die for. You can walk along the boardwalk any afternoon and do your star watching. I still tell the story of talking to Mark Consuelos in line at Walgreens! We have Mojitas all year long not just in the summer. There is always a party or celebration going on somewhere. We have awesome museums with free family nights. If you like to sit and people watch, just come to South Beach...you'll see all kinds of people!

Don't believe the hype! Miami is beautiful! Come visit me anytime. I'll give you a tour.


  1. I may just take you up on that someday! :)

  2. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies, under the Page 7 post on Feb. 09, 2011. Thanks again.

  3. I have just happened upon your blog and have spent the last hour, I'm sorry to say laughing, I know I shouldn't have as some of this has been so sad for you, but it has cheered me up no end, THANK YOU.

    Your work is great by the way. Hope your days get better!:)

  4. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave in the DigiFree category today [10 Feb 12:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  5. You have the sun, I have rain. I have no sales tax, you have no income tax. Don't see any stars during the day here. However, my closest neighbor is half a mile away so my kids could yell all day and no one cared. They could walk to the timber and I didn't worry that someone would grab them. When my grandchildren are old enought to walk to the timber, I still wouldn't worry.

    As nice as Miami sounds, I think I'll stay here. :)

    Thank you for the word art.

  6. Thanks for the invite, when can I come? Seriously, our snow is now waist high and it is still snowing. It has been a loooong winter and it is still Feb. I need some sun!
    Looking forward to the next chapter in your story :)
