California Dreamin’

Woke up this morning to the sound of rain running down the gutters.  " Just another day in paradise" I thought to myself as I crawled out of bed.  I am so sick of the weather here in Washington State.  After coming off of the COLDEST April in history, we are now starting off May, wet, cold and rainy.  There was even snow in the forecast a week ago. UGH!  I have been dreamin' of living in Southern California!  Wouldn't it be wonderful to wake up.... ride your bike to the beach and get some warm sand in your toes?  I can imagine it now.......sunglasses on, smothered sunscreen all over, sitting in my bathing suit on the beach! Ahhhhhhhhh........

Dan grew up in SoCal and says I would hate it.  Miles and miles of concrete, beaches packed with bodies, and materialistic people.  I beg to differ.  I think it would be AMAZING!  Well, maybe not amazing, but I could definitely pull it off for a year or two!  I would love to people watch down there.  See all the women rolling around in their convertible cars, with their designer clothes, and hundred dollar glasses!  Who knows? Maybe I would even see someone famous!

Another cool thing about California......YOU COULD GO TO DISNEYLAND ALL THE TIME! What? What?  Can somebody say "broke"????????!!!!  I would spend all my money on Mickey Mouse hats and Disneyland paraphernalia!!!!!  Wooo-hooooo! I am still a kid at heart I guess!

I know in my soul that I could never really live there, but hey....if this rain keeps up.....I may have a nervous breakdown, pop some Prozac and take the next flight to L.A.!  For now, I am keeping my fingers crossed to see the sun.  I will keep you posted on my mental state. :)
