I never wanted to leave California (it hurt so much leaving..I put on my brave face and dealt and am glad I did..the new energy was much needed for us)
H did..for his job..promotion
His tenacity got us here..but I must say, his tenacity is what is getting us back there, too
I actually kinda liked it here..saw potential..he on the other hand..not so
I laugh because he hates winter more than I do (which is saying a-lot)
We are moving up towards San Francisco this time, though
I have heard Cali is thinking of becoming two states, North and South?
I'll get to Northern Cali and still pine for the South, probably..lol (the desert)
Well, step one..getting back there
I never switched my driver's license over. (the Cali license test is a beyatch)
Deep down I knew we were coming back..I thought maybe one more year than this, but H..and his tenacity..well..
We are very excited (I really did not want to deal with another Minnesota winter..we already experienced the worst they had in years, I hear)
plus the "thrilling" tornadoes..that was "fun"
I am thankful for have been here, thouhg.
it is lovely here and now on my menta and emotional radar..which it was not before.
A place I will hold dear and wish well in my heart always, now..which I would probably not so much, have done, before.
Plus I got to see my old pals from my youth back in Chi town while here..that alone made ti all worth it.
And my son got to really expereince winter..serious winter..so he now has that in his memory bank. (you know from growing up in Buffalo what a treasure that is to have)
He also has lots of green, and trees, and woods, and walking on paths and railroad tracks, playing in ponds to add to his life/youth expereinces..again, growing up in Buffalo, you know the worth of those kinds of childhood memories.
But he is a Calfiornia kid..and for him (and for me and H, too) westside is the best side
