Thursday Already?

Thirteen reasons I'm ready to move back to CA.

1. I was in traffic school and the talk about road rage made me feel all sentimental.

2. The clean air here is killing me. I need air I can sink my teeth into.

3. I'm not a card carrying member of PETA or anything, but the amount of hunters around here makes me want to put some red paint on the Home Depot card and start throwing.

4. Flip flops year round baby.

5. In CA I can get a pizza delivered to my front door whenever I want it...not at 5:30, take it or leave it.

6. Without spending hours stuck in traffic, I am losing my mastery of the more colorful expressions in the English language.

7. The beach. Sure I never went, but if for some reason, I got a wild hair and decided I wanted to, it was there.

8. Disneyland. What? It is the happiest place on Earth you know.

9. I haven't seen anyone carrying a ridiculous purse dog dressed in an outfit that costs more than mine in 9 months.

10. Call me a bad neighbor, but I miss the 6 foot privacy fences. I do not need to chat while I stand outside in my PJ's watching the dog take a crap.

11. We'd be up one babysitting grandma. I forget what it's like to go out to dinner.

12. El Torito, Rubio's, Pick Up Stix, In "n" Out, Togo's...Ahhhh, the food. Beautiful food.

13. It's where I met my husband. It's where we dated. It's where he proposed. It's where my babies were born. It's where they took their first steps. It's where we had our first apartment. First house. First everything. Memories...from the corners of my mind....Sniff. Sniff.

I think #13 is the winner. That's what makes a place feel like home. My thirteen are up.

Hmm...a little homesick, are ya? I completely understand about wanting to go back to a familiar place. I'm 100% happy in TN, but when we lived in GA I wanted to move back to TX so badly!

Happy Thursday!

My 13 are up.

Are you really moving back to California? If you are, then I'm excited for you.

Sounds like you live in a tiny town that closes up early and everyone is chummy with each other. LOL.

My 13 are up.

Hunters - LOL

And I'd say a babysitting grandma is worth her weight in gold.

Hi! Found you via technorati's list of fellow 13ers. I haven't laughed so much in a long time. Then again, all of my kids are in school, thank God, so the house is nice & quiet.

I really loved Cali when I was there. I hated living in Montana during hunting season- you'd never know what you were gonna see in the back of someone's truck.

Too funny, I loved your list.
So agree with the flip flops. I got to pull out the sandles today, you'd think I won some money or something i was so excited.

Damn, you're making me want to move to CA...or at least fly there for a good month-long visit until Spring arrives. :)

Found you on the TT blogroll, and my 13 are up too...

Lived in Snata Monica back in the 80's. Clean air is quite a shock after moving away from Cali, lol.

Happy TT. By the way, the BETA lives, lol. :-)

Apparently, it is time to move. I have my own feelings about Colorado and they are not good. Family craziness abounds out there.

Thanks for coming by!
