The Road More or Less Traveled

Ok, I totally realize I've been a sucky blogger as of late. I've got about 5 posts that I started and decided to "finish later." But they never got finished. I fully intend to finish those posts though. I need to.

I'm in California this week. I've been here since Thursday. I must say it is soooooooo nice to see green. To see flowers. To wake up and have it already be warmer than the projected daytime high at home. It was so depressing going into Home Depot with my aunt yesterday. The one over here has a plethora of patio stuff and most bedding plants out and ready to be planted. Won't see any of that at home for at least another few weeks.

I do believe the writing is on the wall. Jobs, or rather lack thereof at home is both depressing and frustrating. I can do a search on Monster at home and come up with five jobs total. These jobs typically are nothing I'm interested in or are a brutal drive away. I search just in Orange County on Monster and get *two pages* of jobs and every other one piques my interest. I realize real estate is through the roof here, but in all honesty, I'd rather have an overpriced home I know we have the money coming in to pay for, than have the less expensive (but still overpriced, IMO) home that there's a chance we may miss a payment on because one or both of us is either out of work or struggling to make the payment with a minimum-wage job. Hubby has some prospects. Both here and in Arizona. We'll just have to see what pans out.

In the meantime I am going to enjoy my break. Mr. E and I have already been to Disneyland (a choice I still question my sanity on) and have done some light shopping. I think we'll head out to do more shopping later on. Pics to be posted later.

I do the same thing. Start posts and then never finish them. It's annoying isn't it?

Yup. Because then I get all behind and stuff. I really am going to post the rest. The good news is Blogger retains the original date. :)
