The prospect of moving is very terrifying and exciting. It makes me remember all the great and not-so-great aspects of living in California and makes me ponder all the great and not-so-great aspects of living in Arizona....
Here's my list...
Things I Will Miss When We Leave Arizona
Clear starry nights
The first snow day
Monsoon thunderstorms and lightning shows
Bald Eagles on frozen lakes
Christian, my nephew
Catching a glimpse of elk in the front yard
Things I Will NOT Miss at All!
90+ degree summers without air conditioning
Dirty sooty woodstove
The 47th snow day and all the slush
Being broke as hell
Driving 22 miles round trip JUST to go to the grocery store
The sad sorry excuse for Chinese food
Total lack of activities for the kids
Things I Can't Wait for In California
Being able to get my kids together with my friends' kids
Seeing my friends more than once every four years
Good jobs for me and Bob!
Maybe going to grad school
Enrolling Elizabeth in a gymnastics class
Driving one mile to a grocery store and not needing an ice cooler in my trunk for shopping!
Not having to drive in the snow!
What am I forgetting?
