I think I would miss traveling a lot all because I won’t be able to buy stuff like the above that I cannot get here in Canada. The spouse loves to bring home stuff like that to surprise me and I do the same for him when I am traveling for work. While the spouse and I enjoy our life to the max, there are some people around us that are not too happy that we are doing so well. I know of some of the spouse’s friends who don’t come around no more because we have better jobs and better house and cars than they do.
Life can be so strange at times, and when I look back at my sister who is still in Asia doing her “things” with other men instead of her own spouse, that tells me that their relationship cannot be the best ? I may be wrong, of course, I never ask her and she would deny it too, so why bother?
Are humans so shallow? or is it just our friends and neighbors? Lucky for us, our families seems to be fine with our success and like the spouse said, we can’t control what others think about us. But when it affects our kids – well, it affects mama bear here.
