Tomorrow I land in my new home of Alabama, after living in San Diego, California for pretty much most of my life. I am looking forward to seeing my husband again and to finally being free of these small, furry, meowing, pooping, needy beasts, but I will miss the roots I had grown and deepened in California. I'm sure I will find new friends in Alabama, and I look forward to the journey, the million y'alls I'll hear, and the ability to figuring out when "Bless your heart" is a good thing or a bad thing. I look forward to the creepy landscape which I hope will help my horror writing leap off of higher cliffs.
Yet, I keep thinking about all I will miss in Cali. The beaches, the Wild Animal Park, Sea World, the 1 1/2 hour ride to Disneyland, LA (but not LA traffic), the sun, and most of all the really awesome Mexican food! But when I think about what I might be gaining the fried deliciousness, the landscape, the people, and of course the husband, I can't be too sad.
Hopefully, I can start writing again in the next two weeks, I've got to get the last book in my zombie series done so you, out there reading and waiting for my books, can read it and continue to love me!
But for now, the journey to Alabama ends tomorrow, and then the next part begins, the unpacking, the "where the hell did I put my toothbrush" moments, and finding the right coffee shop to sit and write while drinking wonderful caffeinated beverages at.
