2. I go to Costco. That's right. For years I said: who needs all that stuff? When the realtor was showing us homes and kept pointing out "and here's the Costco closet," or suggesting "the Costco fridge will fit great here!" I thought she was nuts. My husband would leave after house hunting and joke to each other about how laughable it was that we, NYC foodies would ever go to Costco.
Last Saturday we joined Costco. And let me tell you, I'll not only glad we picked a home with a Costco closet I am trying to figure out where we can put the Costco fridge. Because six pounds of sweet potato fries aren't going to fit just anywhere.
3. I drive a SUV. And the SUV does car pool. For years I resisted getting a gigantic car. And before the suburban move, I hadn't driven at all in over a decade. But then we moved to the suburbs. And had a third kid. The older two kids starting doing the modern childhood's cacophony of activities and I realized I couldn't do all the driving anymore. And now we car pool. Which I guess is environmentally friendly, so maybe the SUV isn't that bad. Though I know it kinda is.
