I heard a report on the news today that named the top 5 happiest and top 5 saddest states. I remember 3 of the happiest states to live in were Hawaii, Idaho and Minnesota. 3 of the saddest states to live in were Kentucky, Ohio and WV.
I live in the little red box (in Ohio). My husband works in WV, I work in Ohio and my son works in Kentucky. When I need to run to Wal mart, I go to Kentucky. Bigger shopping trip needed?..WV to the mall. Short quick shopping trip? Go the the mall in Kentucky. Want to go out to eat? Seafood..go to WV, steak?..Kentucky. (Don't ask me where I need to go to work on my punctuation, all 3 states have colleges nearby.)
My point is that I live in the middle of 3 of the top 5 saddest states to live in. I could have told them that years ago.
