For those of you who have endured my saga (ie., whining), I'm proud to announce I'm going back home to Silicon Valley; where the rocket scientists (engineers from NASA) take on warring with children at Laserquest and coffee is an artform.
You see, living in isolation is not for me. I just went to see my grandmother and my daughter announced she'd been camping with her dad. "Did Kris go?" Grandma asked. "She always hated camping."
Okay, there it is. This is not a new thing. I was born with it. I am not into dirt or natural beauty (though I will take a house in Montecito and I love to be in the redwoods, so I'm not completely anti-nature). It's just that I prefer the banana slug to the rattlesnake.
This move is not without a cost. I'm leaving a custom built home with a killer bathtub and Viking stove (for looks, not my cooking ability!) for a tract home half the size, but I will be home, home, home! Back to my people, where my church celebrates "National Mustard Day" with a wiener dog race and my mini-van will be the object of scorn amongst the German car snobs.
Silicon Valley, here I come!
Picture one is the wiener dog race at church this past Sunday and two is my homeys who made life in the country bearable. Praise God for these fantastic women!http://www.kristinbillerbeck.com
