Nope, my hometown is in Kansas, and we also had a culture shock when we moved there from Denver when I was a teenager! We all changed from being tiny fish in a big pond to big fish in a tiny pond. And it was good for us as well. Though there are things we all would change about little towns!! (Have you seen the movie "Doc Hollywood?" Adorable.
So glad your hubby is back at work today. I hope like you that he can take it easy. I'm sure that having experienced something as exotic as the swine flu, he'll have to tell his story 100 times today!!
Stay well, Laurel!
