Reasons this Montanan hasn’t Moved Closer to Family in Hawaii
So, as much as I love my son, the other reason it would be hard for me to move to Hawaii involves the fear of insects larger than my hand. I'm talking about cockroaches, mainly; plus, I also had a couple of freaky run-ins with tree frogs and roosters in paradise the last time I was in Hawaii. Remember, you're in "their habitat" and not the other way around. Yes, I'm talking about a more remote area of Hawaii minus fancy resorts and cabanas... but those are cool, too. Reasons number 3, 4, 5, and 6 for not being completely sold on moving to Hawaii? ...lack of acclamation to hot weather, increased volcano activity, the extreme cost of living, and homesickness for the mountains back home. However, If a family member were to win the lottery right now, I would gladly overcome my fear of bugs and everything else in between to make Hawaii my home for at least half of the year. Still, for now, an excursion to and from the tropics works fine for this Montana girl!
