On Friday Matt and I did a quick run into Whitehorse just for the day and I was reminded over and over again why I am happy I don't live in the city. There were the grumpy shoppers, horrible drivers, and the rush rush rush of people everywhere.
I love my quiet life far away from the hustle and bustle of town. Reading other blogs lately I see a number of people who have moved to Whitehorse from the south having troubles adjusting to small city life and I honestly just cannot understand what they are going through having never lived down south or in a large city.
Going into any store during the holiday season completely overwhelms me as well. We keep our holidays quite low key and focus more on visiting friends and family than spending all of our money on crap. Any why do most of the shoppers have to be in such a foul mood? I though one woman was going to yell at Matt in Extra Foods when our cart rolled into her way while we were loading our coolers at the check out. And then there was the woman who gave me a death glare when I said excuse me please may I get by in the craft aisle at Walmart. Of course we always smile and tell the grumps to have a great day.
Thankfully we did still find some happy people hidden amongst the foul ones. The lovely greeter at Walmart full of cheer and humour and the guy who let our truck into the line of traffic with a big grin and a wave.
I am thankful we live a quiet life far from the city and that we feel content with what we have.
