Book List

I must be in a purging mood today. It has been so long since I have been able to write I forgot how good it makes me feel inside and out. My darling Honey is away on business and I desperately miss him already. I doubt he has even made it out of California yet.Nothing seems fun if he's not around, unless my sister is around. However she has been working a lot and I don't see her much anymore.

I have been occupying my time with books,of course.Some people have a Bucket List, I have a Book List. So far this year I have read...

1) Pride & Prejudice
2) Wuthering Heights
3) Dismantled
4) The Incredible Short Life of Bree Tanner
5) Twilight *again*

Still on my book list for the year

1) Jane Eyre
2) To Kill a Mockingbird
3) Delirium
4) Becoming Marie Antoinette
5) if i stay
6) Bad Girls Don't Die
7) Holy Bible

and last but not least The Soldiers Wife. I can't wait to finish my list to read some of these books again!


I do not like the new blogger updated interface. I really hope they will not force us to use it by automatically updating it at a later time.


So thus far life in California has been very boring. I am reminded on a daily basis why I wanted to leave California for Washington in the first place. Everything is expensive here. It feels like no matter how hard you try you can't get ahead. The schools are without money, more budget cuts are being made to schools to save California from bankruptcy.

Our neighborhood has basically no children in it. So my boys are back to only having each other to socialize with which means lots of squabbles. We are closer (same city if not 30min away) to our extended family, yet we had more interaction with them in Washington then we do now. *Lovely*

Three awesome things about California
1) My hubby lives with us, YAY! We were living in separate states while we were relocating which totally sucked!! He's the best part of everyday and to say I missed him cannot convey the depth of the longing I felt to be near him.

2)Our beautiful home church is right down the road. I LOVE my church!

3)My hubby is happiest here.Next year things will improve I'm sure. My oldest will be in orchestra, my middle son will be in sports (fingers crossed) and my youngest will be in school and have his own friends again.

All things I want for them, I pray for them. Also we own this home so I think they, my boys, feel more secure here which gives my heart peace.

I know things are expensive EVERYWHERE but seem more so here.

One Last Wish

When I die leave my ashes in the eternal snow of Mt. Rainier.

Let me float on the mist of Snoqualmie Falls.

Scatter me in the forest so I may creep up the trees like moss.

Leave me on the shores of Whibley Island, to dance along the seashells and fallen trees.

Take me to Flaming Geyser, set me free on the gentle breeze so I may roam in the meadow.

Take me to Washington, the only place I ever wanted to be. The only place my soul felt free.
