Re: OK now tell me, what do you miss the most

What I miss is a very long list, but here are the highlights:
  • Shopping. I miss stores like Pottery Barn, Williams & Sonoma, Ann Taylor, Nordstrom's, Macy's, Sam Goody's, Sephora.
  • Grocery shopping. Grocery stores in the U.S., even the worst ones, have so much variety compared to Coop and Migros. Stores here just don't have the products or the quality of meats. There's also something very NOT right about buying food in a store with dressing rooms.
  • Restaurants. Red Lobster, Bone Fish Grill, a McDonald's that doesn't cost a fortune ... Mexican food, Japanese grills (ala Benihana), single price brunches.
  • Language. We all know what that means. Never realized how wonderful it is to just open my mouth and speak without worrying about being understood.
  • Playing golf.
  • Organized American sports for the kids (ice hockey, football, baseball).
  • Oprah, Ellen, The Today Show.
  • Manicures and pedicures.
  • Last minute Sunday barbeques.
