I was originally born in Houston, TX but grew up in California. I love California. Every time I think of how much I love it, I see myself rolling around the sand in its beaches and deserts and on its dirt in the mountains. I’ll leave it at that, otherwise I’ll never stop writing. My husband grew up in Chicago. We met in California but he’s always hated living there. He says it’s only due to the high cost of living. An average house on sale for $500,000? It’s ridiculous — and I don’t blame him to think it absurd. Either way, I love it there and I can’t see myself living anywhere else. I have lived in Wyoming and now — Texas.
I can’t say it’s horrendous where we live now. The town is small and safe. There isn’t much to do here — which used to drive me insane (because we lived here before) but this time I don’t mind it at all. As a matter of fact, it’s just what I need at the moment. I can focus on my writing, my mixing (yes, I’m trying to be a dj), and my other interests. I don’t have family in my business, though I do miss them terribly, and I am far from fast food. There are a few fast food places in town but we only have one favorite. So, it’s not that bad.
It was last winter when we made the decision to move back and believe me, I was crushed. I held it together well and I fooled my mom that I think she’s resentful because she believes I truly want to be here. In reality, I agreed because it made sense and because they say to get out of your comfort zone for change. My husband wanted to start his own business and a friend here was going to help him get started. My middle child needed his own space now and well, we just couldn’t go on living bunched up in the fifth wheel in my parents driveway. Something had to change and I finally pushed on that stuck domino.
Now you know a bit of what’s currently happening. I’m horrible at short stories. LOL. My goal was to get you guys caught up. From here on I’ll post about things that we do here — maybe some thoughts, challenges. I have a feeling this year will be amazing and I’ll love to share it on here. I’m keeping a positive attitude and staying optimistic as it is my true nature to be. (Did that make sense? Ha-Ha — I’m tired — I’m not going to worry about it for now. LOL). =D
Till next time…XOXO.
