I’m back!

Hello…it’s been a long time. It didn’t work out in Oregon so I came back to California. I’ve only been here about two weeks now and this is the first time I’ve had to write anything.  I’m afraid I don’t really have anything to say…though.

via Daily Prompt: Roots

I dug up my roots after 36 years in California and transplanted them here in Oregon. The roots were long and it was a hard move. I have most of my stuff here in Oregon now, but I still have a few things in California…like my boyfriend. I wish he would come up and join me, but I don’t think he will…at least not anytime soon.


Here I am at my new home and outside we have ducks and geese because there’s a water source across the street.

I’m settling in nicely and have two jobs lined up…have my Oregon driver’s license and have training for the first job the end of this week. Looks like I’ll be working seven days a week, but looking forward to getting back on track.

Washington Park

Today is the first day I’ve taken any pictures since I’ve been up here in Oregon. Mostly I’ve been job hunting and helping my sister make order out of chaos. But things are going ok.

We went to Washington Park today and it was drizzling rain with intermittent sunshine. Strange, but got some good shots.

Well, it’s late and I have an interview in the morning……….wish me luck!


via Daily Prompt: Denial

I think I may be in denial about my move. I want to move, but I don’t want to move. I miss my life here already and I haven’t left yet. I miss my boyfriend. I miss my job. I miss my family.

I feel like everything will be fine when I get to Oregon. Am I just fooling myself?

Change scares me. I’m taking a big leap of faith that everything will turn out fine, but in reality, I’m going far away with no job waiting for me. I’m confident that I’ll find something soon, but what if I don’t?

Crap! I’m leaving tomorrow morning.  Kinda late to change my mind…and I’m not sure I want to. Once I go, there’s no turning back. I can’t afford another move.

I wish I knew what to do…
