You see, we have a house in Houston and a house in the country where we go to escape the big city rat race.
The problem arises when we start looking for something and realize it's at the other house. It's funny because it seems no matter what that item might be, it will always be at the "other" house.
In Houston, and we want to make homemade ice cream, but the freezer is at the other house.
In the country, and we want to make flat iron steak, but the big skillet is at the other house.
Then there's the whole "what did we need to pick up at the supermarket" situation. Since our country house isn't convenient to stores, we end up buying extra soap or TP or pasta, etc. only to realize when we get to the country that the pantry is overflowing with whatever we bought.
Fiction Beats Real Life
I love writing books where the heroine isn't afflicted with the dumb problems I face. The best thing about fiiction is that I can make the characters get the happily ever after they earn through overcoming their emotional baggage and the other obstacles to happiness.Deceptively Yours, Tatiana lives most of the year in Nebraska and visits Fair Winds, the house at Last Chance Beach, a couple of times a year.
