I am a Hoosier darnit!!


Last week my middle school post nearly tipped the scale for the most popular visited post in one day.  I am a sucker for statistics so I check the numbers all of the time.  I don’t know if it was the Tretorn talk or the trojan talk, either way, you read what I had to say.  I am a transplant to the Chicago area.  I grew up in Indiana…on Main Street in fact.  Even though I have lived here many years,occasionally in the summer, a smell, sound or a sensation hits me that reminds me of summers back home.  The lackadaisical attitude, walks to the “strand” to see a move, greek’s, riding bikes up and down main street.    When I look back on it, life seemed so much easier then than now.  Intellectually, I know it wasn’t, I mean there were mean girls ruining perfectly decent shoes for goodness sake.  But now that I am a mom, I wish for the same carefree summers for my children.  I don’t know if I can give them the same things in this Urban setting, but they’ll always know I am a Hoosier at heart.

  1. I was roaming around the Internet looking for information on doing triathlons as a big girl and I ran across your blog. I was pleasantly surprise to find your blog on Indiana and Tuttle Middle School. I went to Southmont and now live in the Washington DC area. It was nice to be reminded of home.
